DIL/NetPC DNP/5280: eCos Starter Kit SK16E

The DIL/NetPC DNP/5280 eCos Embedded Configurable Operating System Starter Kit contains everything you need to get started with your Motorola MCF528x ColdFire- and eCos-based based embedded networking application. The starter kit includes a DNP/5280 module with a pre-installed RedBoot boot loader for eCos, the evaluation board DNP/EVA6, power supply, serial interface (nullmodem) cable, two CD-ROMs with software and documentation and a printed user manual for the first steps with the starter kit.


The pre-installed RedBoot boot loader is a complete bootstrap and debug environment for embedded systems based on the eCos hardware abstraction layer. RedBoot allows download and execution of embedded applications via serial or ethernet, including embedded Linux and eCos applications. It can be used for both product development (debug support) and in deployed products (flash update and network booting).

For using the DIL/NetPC DNP/5280 eCos Starter Kit you need a Windows- or Linux-based PC development system. The minimal configuration for this system is a Windows-based PC with the HyperTerminal terminal emulation program and a free COM port (COM1, COM2 or USB-based COMx) for the RS232 serial link between the DIL/NetPC DNP/5280 and HyperTerminal. For using the Ethernet link, your PC needs an Ethernet adapter with 10 Mbps or 10/100 Mbps LAN interface. The highly configurable nature of eCos allows the operating system to be customised to precise application requirements, delivering the best possible run-time performance and an optimised hardware resource footprint.
