The IN-MCG-1003MAX uses a Ubicom SX20AC processor and Virtual Peripheral software as an RS232 transceiver for serial communications.
The SX-Stack modules are used to create Web servers and e-mail appliances, and can be combined with interface modules from the on-line Scenix Virtual Peripheral software library to build a complete Internet connectivity solution.
The Ethernet Evaluation Kit gives designers hands-on experience with an Ethernet-specific version of the iSX Web Server configuration of the Scenix SX-Stack, which is a combination of standard Internet protocols implemented as Virtual Peripheral modules (software implementations of peripheral and other functions).
The Scenix embedded Internet processor has a RISC-like architecture and an on-chip flash/EEPROM program memory into which the Virtual Peripheral modules are programmed, allowing the chip to be quickly, easily and cost-effectively configured and reconfigured using software rather than silicon.
