APPLICATION EXAMPLEBENEFITS
Uses Rabbit® 4000 and Rabbit 5000 microprocessors
Choice of Wi-Fi, ZigBee or Ethernet connectivity
40 digital I/O and up to 5 serial ports
8 input and 2 output analog channels
Advanced I/O subsystem is software configurable
reducing the load on the processor
I/O features include event/capture counting,
quadrature decoders, PWMs and PPMs
The Rabbit BL4S200 single-board computers (SBCs) offer a full-
featured control and communications solution for industrial
applications. The BL4S200 series is designed to provide the
microprocessor control and I/O used for reading instruments,
timing events precisely, controlling motors, relays and
solenoids.
Why SBCs Are Important
Rabbit combines its legendary ease of use with cost-
competitive hardware and software to make designing
embedded applications straightforward. Rabbit’s flexible
platform gives customers the ability to choose the right
product for their application, while reducing effort and cost.
Many customers take advantage of Rabbit SBCs to get their
product to market quickly and reliably. Further value is
added by allowing migration paths to either RabbitCore®
modules or the chip level solution, while keeping the same
Dynamic C® software development environment.

DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION TOOLS
The BL4S200 Tool Kit contains the essential hardware to
develop an embedded application on a SBC BL4S200 and
debug right on the target hardware.
The BL4S200 Starter Kit includes your choice of the
BL4S200 series and the BL4S200 Tool Kit. The BL4S200
Starter Kit contains the essential hardware and software
tools to develop and debug an embedded application.
TOOL KIT CONTENTS:
Dynamic C® with complete documentation
Printed getting started manual and Rabbit 4000/5000
posters
Demonstration board with pushbutton switches and
LEDs to demonstrate the I/O capabilities of the BL4S200
USB programming cable to connect the BLS4200 to your
PC’s USB port
Universal AC adapter, 12 V DC, 1 A (includes Canada/
Japan/U.S., Australia/N.Z., U.K., and European
style plugs

THE RABBIT RIO® ADVANTAGE
The BL4S200 series uses our Rabbit RIO chip to add a
powerful I/O subsystem. The on-board Rabbit RIO devices
add software configurable counter/timer blocks that
can perform a variety of usefulI/O capability, including
event capture/counting, quadrature decoding, PWM and
PPM generation, and edge or level based interrupts. This
subsystem capability delivered by the Rabbit RIO device
frees the microprocessor for control, data processing
and communications tasks. Each BL4S200 board has 24
counter/ timer blocks available in the I/O subsystem.
SOFTWARE
RABBITNET™ COMPATIBLE
RabbitNet expansion ports enable a modular and
expandable embedded control system whose configuration
of expansion cards can be tailored to a large variety of
demanding real-time control, display and data-acquisition
applications. A typical RabbitNet system consists of a master
SBC and one or more peripheral cards.
Available RabbitNet Expansion Cards:
RN1100 - Digital I/O expansion
RN1200 - A/D expansion
RN1300 - D/A expansion
RN1400 - Relay expansion
RN1600 - Keypad/Display expansion
EXCEPTIONAL SUPPORT
Our Technical Support staff helps Rabbit users accelerate
development schedules. We offer development kits and
tool kits to help our customers learn new technologies, get
ideas about how to integrate into embedded systems, and
arrive at solutions.
Develop and debug programs using the industry-proven
Dynamic C® integrated development environment (version
10.42 or later). Dynamic C includes the popular μC/OS-II real-
time operating system, point-to-point protocol (PPP), FAT file
system, RabbitWeb™, and other select libraries. Connect the
BL4S200 board to the PC using a USB cable and then debug
using break points, watch expressions and other features
oriented toward real-time embedded systems programming.
An extensive library of drivers and sample programs is
provided, including a royalty-free TCP/IP stack for network and
Internet communications. Full source code is provided for
most library routines.
Available for purchase is the Rabbit Embedded Security Pack
featuring the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and the Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES) library. In addition to the
Web-based technical support included at no extra charge, a
one-year telephone-based technical support subscription is
also available for purchase.
