Netcruzer Library and Demo Projects
The free Netcruzer Library contains libraries, projects, demos and drivers for our products. All code is written in C, and can be edited, programmed and debugged with the free MPLAB X IDE and XC16 C Compiler. For information on modifying projects click here. All source code and documentation is included with the Netcruzer Download. An online version of the documentation is also available here.
The Netcruzer Download contains many Demo projects to help you getting started quickly.
Our Forum also contains additional information, and can be used to post questions.
Microchip Application Library
Netcruzer boards use the TCP/IP, USB and Wireless stack code contained in the freely available Microchip Application Library (MAL). For additional documentation and help we suggest downloading MAL, and referring to the API documentation and other resources. The required source code from MAL is also contained in the Netcruzer Download.
Our range of Netcruzer boards consist of the SBC66 Single Board Computers, and expansion boards. All SBC66 boards are the same size, and have the same daughter board connector.
The SBC66 boards can be expanded in a many different ways to add additional functionality.
The two 2×10 Pin Female connectors (standard 2.54mm pitch) can be used to add a daughter board. Currently the following daughter boards are available.

As Daughter Board
The SBC66 boards can be mounted on a main board as a daughter board. Two 2×10 pin headers (HDR2X10-M254-575) are used on the main board to plug the SBC66 board into. Currently the following boards can take a SBC66 board as a daughter board.
An iMod port is provided for adding an iMod module. Currently the following iMod modules can be used
LCD Display with Keypad
One of our LCD2S serial LCD displays can be added via the I2C serial port (Micro Match connector). The LCD2S serial LCD displays also have a keyboard input, and user I/Os (relays for example). The image on the right shows a SBC66 board connected to a 16×2 Character Serial LCD Display and a 12 Button Keypad.
The SBC66 boards are highly configurable, and can be used in many custom applications. The picture to the right shows a custom board with 4 RS-232 Ports using a SBC66 daughter board. It uses the 4 available high speed UARTs of the SBC66 board. Many different applications are possible using the many UARTs (RS-232, RS-485, RS-422), PWM outputs (LED Drivers, Motor control), Analog Inputs and other available peripherals.
