The netX network controller with its 32-bit ARM offers a high computing power and comprehensive peripheral functions for single chip solutions in price-sensitive applications. Network protocols and application program jointly use the netX resources and are carried out in a Real-Time operating system.
The simplest and most economic possibility of evaluating the whole system is the netX software development board. The board contains a universal hardware, an integrated debug interface, and is delivered with the HiTOP development environment from Hitex. You can load your application onto the board, run it with our protocol stacks, and combine it, e.g., with the licence-free rcX Real-Time Kernel.
For this purpose, HiTOP with the integrated GNU compiler, offers a comfortable development and debugging environment. With HiTOP you can develop code without limitation, to test it, however, you need the netX software development board.
As a basis for your hardware development, you will receive the complete circuit diagram except for the debug interface. Via the JTAG interface of this hardware, you can connect e.g. the Tantino from Hitex and develop or test with the same user interface and functionality as on the development board.
