RTOS-Based Configurable Serial-to-Ethernet Converter on High Performance MCUs Reference Design


Legacy products may only contain a serial port and accessing such end equipments (EEs) is increasingly becoming a challenge due to the inability to add them to a shared network and access them over long distances (like remote control stations). A Serial-to-Ethernet  (S2E) converter provides a simple solution to solve the challenges posed by such EE's. This TI Design leverages an Ethernet-based TM4C129x (formerly known as Tiva) microcontroller to implement an S2E converter that allows quicker time-to-market and cost savings.
