Many design engineers are seeking high-capacity data storage that is not limited to the physical constraints of memory integrated into current embedded designs. Removable memory such as USB memory and flash cards still suffer from the problem of being located on-site, making them vulnerable to flood, fire or theft. Rabbit solves this problem with the SMB Network Storage Application Kit.
The SMB (Server Message Block) Network Storage Application Kit enables a RabbitCoreÂ® module to use the SMB protocol, more commonly known as Windows File Sharing, for a high-capacity storage space over a network connection. The de facto file and printer sharing system in use today, an SMB server shares file and printer resources over a computer network, allowing for flexibility and scalability. Once set up, a RabbitCoreÂ® module can act as an SMB client and remotely store files and use them according to their purpose. The SMB Application Kit allows you to add an SMB server to a Rabbit-based system that enables file sharing.
Included in the SMB Network Storage Application Kit is a 250 GB network storage drive that can act as a remote file server. Sample programs demonstrate how to add, delete, edit and rename files on the server by providing an interactive command-line shell.
The SMB Network Storage Application Kit contains:
- RabbitCore RCM4010 module

Designing with a RabbitCore
The RabbitCore line of microprocessor core modules is designed to facilitate rapid development and implementation of embedded systems. Develop programs with the Dynamic C software tools, a C-language environment that includes an editor, linker, loader and compiler.
Download your program from your PC via USB or serial port, and debug right on the target hardware â€“ no in-circuit emulation is required. This environment reduces effort and speeds hardware and software integration. Rabbit provides an extensive library of drivers and sample programs, along with royalty-free TCP/IP stack with source.
The RCM4010 microprocessor core module in the SMB Application Kit is a powerful embedded Ethernet control device. It provides the intelligence and Internet connectivity that allows your devices to be remotely monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world. Running at 58.98 MHz, equipped with 16-bit memory and on-chip DMA channels, the RCM4010 can handle both communications and intelligence of your embedded device in a small footprint of 1.84â€³ x 2.41â€³ x 0.77â€³ (47 mm x 61 mm x 20 mm).
