The EM500 miniature standalone BASIC-programmable embedded module has been designed for use with standard LED/magnetic RJ45 jacks. When combined, the measurements of the EM500 and standard jack are 28.5 x 18.5mm, which is considerably smaller than rival models. The hardware of this unit includes a 10/100BaseT Ethernet, serial port and eight I/O lines, and it has been designed to suit specific lightweight network-enabled control device requirements.
The EM500 supports Wi-FI communications through the use of the GA1000, and supports flash disks through the use of the SPI flash IC. In the near future, this device will also support LCD and keyboard connectivity, but can now be ordered as a standalone unit or combined with an industry-standard RJ45 jack with or without, the required components needed to complete the circuit.
