TIDM-TM4C129XS2E

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

TIDM-TM4C129XS2E

Design files

Overview

Legacy products may only contain a serial port. 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 answer to solve the challenges posed by such EEs. This reference 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.

Features
  • Two serial-to-Telnet port pairs to connect two different serial devices at the same time
  • HTTP configuration web server to dynamically manage IP address, serial port and Telnet port settings (at runtime)
  • Configuration parameters stored in electrically-erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) with provision to restore factory settings
  • Software uses FreeRTOS™ for task scheduling, lwIP TCP/IP stack, and TI’s TivaWare™ for C series software (includes driver library and locator service) to simplify application development
  • Software designed to work on EK-TM4C129XL (connected LaunchPad) and DK-TM4C129X (with minimal modifications) for supported toolchains like TI’s Code Composer Studio™ software, Keil® MDK, IAR™ embedded workbench, and GNU
  • Optional board with RS-232 PHY for easy connections to EK-TM4C129XL and DK-TM4C129X
