Rabbit Semiconductor (acquired by Digi)
Rabbit Semiconductor® Inc., a Digi International® brand (NASDAQ: DGII), is a global provider of high-performance 8-bit microprocessors and development tools for embedded control, communications, and Ethernet connectivity. Rabbit Semiconductor introduced the popular Rabbit® 2000 microprocessor in 1999, the Rabbit 3000 in 2002 and the Rabbit 4000 in 2006. The industry award-winning RabbitCoreTM line of microprocessor core modules was introduced in 2001.
Rabbit-based applications now have even more ways to communicate.
Rabbit Semiconductor has added Bluetooth® support for selected core
modules, the BL2500 and the BL2600 single board computers.
The Embedded PLC Application Kit enables a Rabbit 3000 based
single-board computer to be programmed using a standard software
environment that is commonly used to program PLC's (Programmable Logic
The new Rabbit 4000 is a high-performance, low-EMI microprocessor designed specifically for embedded control, communications, and Ethernet connectivity. The Rabbit 4000 outperforms most 16–bit processors without losing the efficiency of an 8–bit architecture.
The RIO (Rabbit I/O) is a versatile programmable I/O chip, featuring I/O expansion and specialty features compatible with any processor that has an available clocked serial port. Since the RIO is part of the Rabbit® family of devices, Dynamic C® library and sample programs are available to quickly integrate the RIO into Rabbit® systems.
The Rabbit 5000 is the next generation of Rabbit microprocessors
designed specifically for embedded control, communications, and network
connectivity. Extensive integrated features facilitate rapid hardware
design, while a C-friendly instruction set promotes efficient
development of even the most complex applications.
Ethernet designers now have a Serial-to-Ethernet Application Kit that
is easy to use out of the box. The simple 3-Step Setup for transmitting
data from a digital volt meter via a serial port to a TCP/IP stream enables
even the newest user to quickly develop a Serial-to-Ethernet application.
