xPico - Compact embedded serial-to-Ethernet device server solution

The chip-sized xPico enables engineers to quickly and easily design in serial-to-Ethernet device server functionality, with minimal effort and virtually no code writing.

Designed for quick integration with minimal engineering effort, the chip-sized xPico provides simple and flexible networking-enabling of applications.

xPico enables Ethernet connectivity on virtually any device with a serial interface. The industry-proven Lantronix device server application and full IP stack on the module allow seamless remote access to device data, simplifying design integration and providing robust connectivity.

Because of its size xPico can be utilized in designs typically intended for chip solutions. A key difference with the xPico is that there is virtually no need to write a single line of code, translating to a much lower development cost and faster time-to-market.
