ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Innovasic Semiconductor has released two new reference designs for its fido 1100 real-time communications controller family.

The company reports that PCB modules based on these designs will offer deterministic real-time response, fail-safe operation and programmable I/O, and can be used for rapid prototyping and performance evaluation. In addition, the small footprint modules can be directly integrated into customer products.

Two modules are available, one for embedded real-time Ethernet and one for embedded control applications. 

The Real-Time Ethernet Module (RTE) reference design includes schematics, circuit board layout, bill of materials and software to enable embedded devices to be interfaced to a 10/100 Ethernet network. Company information indicates that packets are received and transmitted with extremely low jitter, and the fido architecture also allows fail-safe operation, immunity from system crashes and denial of service attacks.

The company has also released Embedded Control Module (ECM) reference design for the fido1100 which reportedly has programmable I/O, allowing the ECM module to be with a wide range of serial and parallel interface types, such as UARTs, GPIO, LCD, SPI, I2C and CAN.
