Grid Connect launches gigabit Ethernet system on a Chip

Grid Connect
announced the launch of the gridARM, System on a Chip, with integrated Gigabit
Ethernet. The gridARM is targeted at the low cost embedded marketplace where
cost and performance are important.

The gridARM is
designed for low cost products that require a fast Ethernet connection. As most
IT networks, PCs and laptops are all gigabit Ethernet, it only makes sense to
have all your devices on the network to be as fast as possible.

The gridARM is
designed to be the main processor in the system. The cost of adding Ethernet to
your product is now low and can be a marketing and performance advantage for
your product.

The gridARM is
available in volume today. The development kit includes an evaluation board,
cables, JTAG emulator, power supply and a complete set of development tools
including a royalty free real-time operating system, TCP/IP v4/6 library, web
server, telnet and example tunneling software.

The gridARM is
available in two packages – 225 pin BGA and 208 pin QFP. The gridARM chip
includes an ARM7TDMI core, 10/100/1000 Ethernet MAC, CAN controller, up to 3
serial ports, I2C, SPI, on chip SRAM, USB device, A/D converters, and
interfaces for SDRAM, Flash, Compact Flash, external SRAM, and NAND flash.
