A quick and economical entry into the netX technology is achieved with the netSTICK and the NXHX starter and software development board. Both contain a USB debug interface and are provided with the HiTOP development environment. This permits evaluation of the protocol interfaces and the rcX Real-Time kernel as well as development of own application software which can be tested on these boards.
NXHX - netX Software Development Board
The netX network controller with its 32 Bit / 200 MHz ARM CPU provides a high degree of computing performance and comprehensive peripheral functions for single chip solutions in price-sensitive applications. Here the network protocols and the application program together use the resources of the netX and are carried out together in a Real-Time operating system.
The simplest and most economic way of evaluating the whole system is with the netX software development board. Besides a universal hardware, it also possesses an integrated debug interface and is supplied with the HiTOP development environment of Hitex.
An application can be loaded onto the board and run with the Hilscher protocol stacks and, for instance, combined with the licence-free rcX Real-Time Kernel. For this purpose HiTOP, having integrated the GNU compiler, offers a comfortable development and debugging environment. However, using the HiTOP supplied testing is only possible on the software development board. With the exception of the debug interface the complete circuit diagram provides a basis for hardware development. On this hardware you will later connect, via the JTAG Interface, the Tantino from Hitex and test or develop with the same user interface and functionality as on the development board.
netSTICK - netX 50 evaluation & development
The simplest and least expensive way to evaluate the netX50 and the protocol stacks is with the netSTICK. The netSTICK contains a complete communication interface for the Real-time Ethernet and fieldbus. The USB based development tool netSTICK is recognized by the PC as a type of a memory stick. It contains an integrated debugger interface and is provided with the HiTOP development environment from Hitex. Also included is the Insider's Guide to netX which contains background information along with step by step instructions on how to use and write an application program in rcX.
Included with the HiTOP debugger with its integrated GNU compiler providing an easy to use environment to develop an application to run on the netX 50. You can develop code unrestricted and load this for testing with the HiTOP debugger on the netSTICK only. The provided 'netX Configuration and Diagnostic Utility' provides an example program for the netSTICK using 16 digital input and output on any network supported.
Further development and evaluation boards for special applications are available.
