Introduction

The EM500 MiniMo® device is a miniature stand-alone Tibbo BASIC/C-programmable embedded module, designed to be used in combination with a standard LED/magnetics RJ45 jack. The combined footprint of the EM500 and a standard jack is only 28.5x18.5mm.

The module's hardware mix — which includes a 10/100BaseT Ethernet port, a serial port, and eight I/O lines — has been carefully tailored to address the basic needs of lightweight network-enabled control devices. If your application has a need to store data in files, an external flash IC can be connected to the EM500. The EM500 also supports Wi-Fi communications (using the GA1000 add-on module).

Compact dimensions, an innovative "vertical slice" mechanical design, low power consumption, and patented dual-function LED control lines make the module an excellent fit for miniature, cost-sensitive designs.

The EM500 is fully supported by Tibbo IDE (TIDE) and a dedicated EM500 platform that covers all hardware facilities of the module. For convenient testing and evaluation, Tibbo offers the EM500EV development system.

The EM500 can be ordered standalone or in combination with an industry-standard RJ45 jack and/or other discrete components required to complete a working circuit.
