The EM1001 is Tibbo's most powerful and versatile BASIC-programmable Ethernet board. The EM1001 is a close relative of the EM1000 Ethernet module. Two devices have the same feature set, including the 10/100BaseT Ethernet port, four serial ports, onboard flash disk, EEPROM, and the RTC with optional backup supercapacitor.
Like the EM1000, the EM1001 board can control the GA1000 Wi-Fi add-on, as well as an external LCD, keypad, buzzer, and many other peripheral components.
Unlike the module, the EM1001 is a self-sufficient board: it has a 12V-to-3.3V switching power regulator, RJ45 connector with magnetics, three LEDs, and the MD button. Thus, the EM1001 does not require a host board to plug into. The EM1001 is the host board.
As such, the EM1001 is equally suited to low-volume production devices and hobbyist projects alike.
