Small 1" x 1" LAN Module Gives Developers Greater Thermal Capacity For A Lower Price

LSHM-200 Serial-to-Ethernet Module

"We feel that the LSHM-200 sets a new standard for the Serial-to-Ethernet industry" says Alex Tsau, VP of Operations at Radicom. "Not only are we pushing new thermal limits, we have an industry-leading footprint, and a strong value price point."

Radicom Research, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of dial-up and wireless modems for Embedded Applications, today announced the immediate availability of its LSHM-200 Serial-to-Ethernet Modules for Embedded System Applications. The new module represents a breakthrough in both thermal capacity and size, all at a price point suitable for today’s challenging economic environment.

“We feel that the LSHM-200 sets a new standard for the Serial-to-Ethernet device server industry,” says Alex Tsau, VP of Operations at Radicom. “Not only are we pushing new thermal limits, we have an industry-leading footprint, and a strong value price point. It offers the ultimate in flexibility.”

Measuring only 1” (W) x 1” (D) x 0.25” (H), the LSHM-200 connects serial devices to IP networks with a 10/100BaseT interface. It provides an easy and affordable solution for connecting microcontroller-based systems with serial ports to IP networks for remote control and monitoring applications.

“Many serial-to-ethernet modules come at 2.5” depth -- more than twice the LSHM-200’s depth. The LSHM-200 also brings a wider thermal range, including sub-zero (Celsius) temperatures,” says Tsau. “These specifications offer high durability for extreme applications such as remote monitoring.”

Capable of operating between temperatures of -40°C and +85°C, the LSHM-200 allows for seamless access and communications of serial data through any 10/100BaseT Ethernet, even in extreme thermal conditions. It provides data transfer among multiple IP addresses simultaneously via Telnet ports with TCP/IP protocols under Ethernet. The onboard Ethernet functions conform to the widely adopted IEEE802.3 standard with automation and buffering, while the integrated serial port includes standard serial terminal features such as flow control and standard 8-N-1 character length.

With DTE speeds up to 230Kbps, the LSHM-200 delivers fast data transfer at a cost that is developer friendly (starting at $24 USD for 100 pieces). In addition, Radicom offers the LSDK-2001 Development Kit for ease of testing, programming, and evaluation. The kit includes the LSHM-200 mounted on a Radicom carrier board, complete with necessary connectors, power adapter and cable accessories
