The compact XPort® Direct+™ is an embedded device server module delivering high-performance Ethernet connectivity and web server capabilities.

XPort Direct+ acts as a dedicated co-processor module to optimize network activities, permitting the device's host microcontroller to function at maximum efficiency. Serial data from the device microcontroller's CMOS logic-level serial port is packetized and delivered over an Ethernet network via TCP or UDP data packets. Similarly, incoming TCP or UDP packets are unbundled and presented to the attached device over its microcontroller's serial interface.

XPort Direct+ features a built-in web server for communications with a device via a standard Internet browser. Web capability can be used for remote configuration, real-time monitoring, upgrades and troubleshooting. XPort has 512 KB of on module Flash for web pages and firmware upgrades.

This fully-integrated and ready-to-deploy module also includes a 10/100 MAC/PHY, 256 KB of SRAM, and an RJ45 jack with magnetics, and 256-bit AES encryption for secure communications. Easy to embed, this device server module enables engineers to focus on their core competency while reducing development time and cost and increasing product value.

XPort Direct+ features:

  • Powerful and affordable networking for any device with a serial interface on its microcontroller
  • Integrated module with RJ45 and dedicated networking SoC
  • Web server, TCP/IP protocol stack and Windows deployment software
  • Up to 921 Kbps data rate
  • Compact low profile (<12 mm)
  • 2 x 12 pin, 2 mm headers
  • Three GPIO pins
  • RS-232/RS-485 ready
  • 256-bit AES encryption for secure communications

XPort Direct+ is also offered without an RJ45 connector

The XPort Direct+ NC (no connector) is a lower-priced option enabling you to place the connector anywhere on the board, based on your design requirements.
