May 20, 2008 -- Evatronix SA today announced the HDLC Connectivity Platform, an integrated solution that will shorten the time necessary for development of an 8-bit SOC enhanced with advanced data communication capabilities. HDLC Connectivity Platform features hardware support for LAPB/LAPD protocols for significant savings in CPU time, while a built-in DMA controller increases overall system performance.
Customization of the number of communication channels along with a 11 internal interrupts results in high performance of the data communication protocol. Last but not least, the platform maintains all the functionality and configurability of its components – the R8051XC microcontroller and the HDLC controller. Software and dedicated hardware environment further simplify application development.
"This platform was developed to facilitate the process of designing telecommunication chips that utilize an HDLC Controller," said Tomasz Kowalczyk, Product Line Manager at Evatronix. "The hardware support we are offering with the HDLC core makes the 8-bit architecture of R8051XC a perfect solution for the majority data communication applications."
HDLC controller joins other IP cores in the R8051XC-based platform family, Ethernet MAC and USB Controllers.
The HDLC Connectivity Platform is available for licensing now. Configuration and customization options are identical to those offered by individual components. A demo application demonstrating the functionality of the platform is available upon request.
