EM2000 BASIC/C-programmable IoT Module
The EM2000 is Tibbo's fastest, as well as the most powerful and versatile BASIC/C-programmable IoT module. The module is a high-performance upgrade to our popular EM1000 device.
The module's hardware features include 100/10BaseT Ethernet port, four serial ports supporting UART, Wiegand, and clock/data modes, four I2C/SPI ports, onboard flash, EEPROM, RTC, and up to 56 I/O lines.
The EM2000 is also excellent for prototyping your projects — it has the standard pin pitch of 2.54mm (0.1").
The EM2000 is fully supported by Tibbo IDE software and a dedicated EM2000 platform that covers all hardware facilities of the module (see TIDE, TiOS, Tibbo BASIC, and Tibbo C Manual). For convenient testing and evaluation Tibbo offers EM1000TEV and EM1000EV development systems (they are compatible with the EM2000 module). The EM2000 can also support Wi-Fi and GPRS communications.
EM2000 advantages over the EM1000 module
The EM2000 is a high-performance upgrade to our EM1000 device. Here is small list of important improvements:
- 32-bit architecture (vs. 16-bit architecture of the EM1000).
- 5 to 80 times better performance, depending on the calculations and variable types.
- 7 times faster GPIO manipulation.
- 3 times larger available user SRAM (66KB vs. 22KB).
- 1.5-3.0 times faster graphics.
- 2.2 times lower power consumption (100mA vs. 220mA).
- 2 times larger flash memory (1MB for TiOS/code + 1MB for the file system vs. 1MB total for TiOS, code, and file system).
- 56 I/O lines (vs. 54 lines on the EM1000).
- 4-channel ADC.
- The ability to update TiOS firmware and compiled Tibbo BASIC/C app over-the-air (this requires the WA2000 and an iOS or Android device).
- 32-bit architecture.
- Powered by Tibbo OS (TiOS).
- 10/100BaseT auto-MDIX Ethernet port (automatic detection of "straight" and "cross" cables). Standard Ethernet magnetics are NOT integrated into the module.
- Optional Wi-Fi interface (requires the WA2000 add-on module to be connected).
- Optional BLE interface (requires the WA2000 add-on module).
- Can control a GPRS modem* (such as the SIM900).
- Four high-speed serial ports (CMOS-level):
- Baudrates of up to 460,800bps;
- None**/even/odd/mark/space parity modes;
- 7**/8 bits/character;
- Full-duplex mode with RTS/CTS and XON/XOFF flow control;
- Half-duplex mode with direction control;
- Encoding and decoding of Wiegand and clock/data streams.
- 56 general-purpose I/O lines; 8 lines can work as interrupts.
- Square wave output (can be used for buzzer* control).
4 synchronous serial ports with SPI and I2C modes.
Supports a 320x240 TFT LCD*.
Supports matrix and binary output keypads*.
RTC with dedicated backup power input.
66KB SRAM for Tibbo BASIC/C variables and data.
1MB flash for TiOS and application code.
Additional 1MB flash for the hardened fault-tolerant file system.
2048-byte EEPROM for data storage.
Three status LEDs onboard:
- Green and red main status LEDs;
- Yellow Ethernet link LED.
Four control lines for external status LEDs:
- Two control lines for green and red main status LEDs;
- Two control lines for Ethernet "link" and "100Mb" LEDs.
Software-controlled PLL allows selecting full, medium, or low speed.
Reliable power-on/ brown-out reset circuit.
Power: 100mA @ 3.3V (100BaseT mode, full speed).
Dimensions (LxWxH): 38.4 x 28.4 x 5.5mm.
Prototyping-friendly 2.54mm (100mil) pin pitch.
Operating temperature range: -40 ~ +80 C.
- Firmware and compiled Tibbo BASIC/C app can be updated through:
- The serial port;
- Ethernet LAN; oR
- Over-the-air (this requires the WA2000 and an iOS or Android device).
- Tibbo BASIC/C application can be debugged through the Ethernet LAN (no additional debugging hardware is required).
- CE- and FCC-certified.
* Must be connected externally.
