The LX is a powerful x186 System-on-a-chip (SOC) that has many features which allows it to be used in embedded communication or co-processor applications. The extended x186 architecture allows for up to 16M bytes of memory and executes most instructions in one clock cycle - 12.5MIPS. The LX has a sister chip called the DSTni EX which is compatible and 3x faster with some different peripherals.
LX-001, GC-LX-001-LF, LX1000000-02R, LX1000000-03R.
The LX is perfect for embedded applications that require 10/100 Ethernet and other communication channels like CAN, SPI, or RS232 or RS422/485. With the on-chip 256K bytes of RAM memory applications can be loaded from SPI serial Flash or external Flash/EPROM into the on-chip memory and execute with 0 wait state performance and no external memory devices. External memory can be added to support additional RAM or Flash for a total of up to 16M bytes. The on-chip 8K Dual port memory can be used to talk with a co-processor (DSP).
Use of all the x86 compilers and tools and code base allows the users to use existing code, use binaries provided, or develop their own software using the Borland or Paradigm development environments. The DSTni LX Development kit provides you a complete hardware and software environment.
