Digi Releases Industry's Fastest ARM9 Based Wired and Wireless Embedded Core

Module Family

MINNETONKA, Minn., Mar. 6 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --

New family ideal for devices with displays and multimedia requirements

    Digi International (Nasdaq: DGII) today introduced the ConnectCore(TM) 9M

2443 and ConnectCore(TM) Wi-9M 2443, the industry's fastest ARM9-based, network

enabled embedded core modules.  Supporting both Windows CE and Linux operating

systems, the pin-compatible wired and 802.11a/b/g core modules feature state-of-

the-art peripherals, rich development resources and speed making the products

ideal for display and embedded multimedia applications.  This includes embedded

applications in networked displays, medical devices, building access controls,

energy management devices, time and attendance devices, scales and other devices

with multimedia or display technology. 

    "The ConnectCore 9M 2443 series is 33 percent faster than any other ARM9-

based core module available," said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global

sales and marketing, Digi International.  "This level of speed can reduce

development time by allowing engineers to reuse existing ARM9 code in wired and

wireless applications that require high levels of speed and support."  


    Based on the Samsung S3C2443 ARM9 microprocessor and operating at up to 533

MHz, the ConnectCore 9M 2443 and ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 feature a multilayered

memory bus architecture that allows simultaneous data transfer between processor,

memory and peripherals.  This eliminates the traditional bus bandwidth

bottlenecks that are common on other platforms.  For example, updating graphical

information through the LCD controller and retrieving data from memory at the

same time can now be realized without compromising overall performance and user


    The modules also feature a full set of peripheral and multimedia connectivity

options including an integrated LCD controller, USB 2.0 support and support for

SD Memory cards.  This allows embedded developers to support the latest

peripherals in their products.  Additionally, the modules feature off-the-shelf

hardware and software support for all power management modes making the modules

ideal for low power and battery powered/mobile applications.  

    The ConnectCore 9M 2443 is fully tested and CE certified, and the ConnectCore

Wi-9M 2443 will be certified upon availability.  The modules also feature a 5-

year manufacturer's warranty, the longest core module warranty available in the

industry.   ConnectCore 9M 2443 Windows CE 6.0 Digi JumpStart Kits(R) are

available now for an introductory price of $399.  Linux Digi JumpStart kits will

be available in May 2009.  ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 Digi JumpStart Kits will be

available in June 2009.  For more information, please visit
