Who are we?
Digital Shortcut Inc. mission is to deliver low cost, but versatile and powerful,
easy-to-use design and development platforms for embedded and network oriented applications
(embedded ethernet). We aim to reduce start-up effort and time to market; from the concept
through a prototype to final product. Our expertise in microprocessors, FPGAs and
the manufacturing process ensures that the difficult task of designing embedded project
from scratch or redesigning the old stuff is not "so risky" anymore.
Our favorite "Shortcuts"
Shortcut #1: DS2148WZ (ARM7 with Fast Network Processing Unit)
NXP LPC2148 and WIZnet W5300 Combo.
Feel the power of a duo ARM7
and WIZnet W5300
. W5300 brings to ARM7 128 KBytes of
network buffers and fast, easy to comprehend hardwired TCP/IP stack letting you to focus on your application.
Our implementation of HTTP server serves the page you are reading now in 60ms
and in the same time doesn't load the CPU that much. We measured 2.4MByte/s
download speed and 2.0MByte/s
All peripherals and interrupts of LPC2148
are available for you.
Shortcut #2: DSX50WZ (Spartan-3 FPGA with Fast Network Processing Unit)
Xilinx Spartan-3(XC3S50AN) and WIZnet W5300 Combo.
Amazing! The smallest
capable of speedy 8 MBytes/s
upload (HTTP POST) and 4.8 MBytes/s
download (HTTP GET), doesn't require any external memory to serve this very page (16 files/ 200 packets).
Our demo HTTP server runs on PicoBlaze leaving 2/3 of Spartan resources available to you.
No need for heavy IP modules, DDR's, OS and 8-layer PCB.
Connect your VHDL/Verilog code to the net instantly!
