Model: COM20020I 3V
Operating System: Windows 98 (Note: might work with other versions of this os.)
The COM20020I is a member of the family of Embedded ARCNET Controllers from SMSC. The device is a general purpose communications controller for networking microcontrollers and intelligent peripherals in industrial, automotive, and embedded control environments using an ARCNET protocol engine. The small package, flexible microcontroller and media interfaces, eight-page message support, and extended temperature range of the COM20020I make it the only true network controller optimized for use in industrial, embedded, and automotive applications. Using an ARCNET protocol engine is the ideal solution for embedded control applications because it provides a deterministic token-passing protocol, a highly reliable and proven networking scheme, and a data rate of up to 5 Mbps when using the COM20020I.
