DSI

Who we are and what we believe in

With more than 20 years of experience in microcontroller and digital design fields, knowing a huge variety of processors, we came to the conclusion that now is the time for significant overhaul of the embedded world. The advent of inexpensive ARM based micros with an array of versatile peripherals dwarfed the old designs overnight. The new one can be less expensive and delivers the execution speed at least by one order of magnitude faster. The power of LPC2148 (60MHz ARM7 32-bit CPU) with built-in UARTs, ISP, I2C, PWM, RTC, ADCs, DACs and more than 40 General Purpose IOs brings a totally new level of performance to the embedded control field. Available memory resources (both Flash and RAM) are so vast that good, ye oldie 8051 looks like a midget when compared. There is no need for tricks like bank switching and extensive assembly patching. Without any hesitation you can move to C-only programming and feel a lot of extra "breathing space".
• Our mission is to deliver affordable, but versatile and powerful easy-to-use design and development platforms for embedded projects, specially suitable for Industrial Ethernet, Internet-enabled devices and M2M (Machine-to-Machine) applications.
• Our products are ready to be used out of the box, on day one.
• We aim to reduce startup effort, time to market and development cost.
• By using our platforms you can get immediate USB and Ethernet connectivity.
• We are enthusiasts of open source community and we often use available solutions.
• The hardware is complemented by a free downloadable GNU ARM tool-chain (C, C++ compilers, Linker) and FlashLoader utility.
• In download section of this website we present several application examples tailored to our boards and ready to be used as a reference or even starting point of your project. They include "startup.c" addressing (always tricky) processor initialization/configuration issues and a "makefile" responsible for compilation and linking setup.
• We want to deliver smart and easy-to-use "shortcut solutions" for the high-tech embedded world.
