RCM5700 static storage
New to Rabbit controllers… I’m working with a RCM5700 to turn it into a web based home controller. I plan to use the I/Os to control various features and monitor various things about the house.
One of the items I plan on is to have the RCM5700 control a 20 zone sprinkler set. In the past when I did this with a PIC I was able to store information about start times, run times in flash since they were not updated vary frequently.
In studying the RCM5700 I’m a little confused between flash and user blocks. Is there a memory map (graphical or text) for the memory usage that might help me to understand what section of memory would be best to use?
Also what Dyn C functions access the suggested section?
Thanks in advance!

Hi, I am very new in using RCM5700. Can someone guide me how should I start to set the ethernet communication from the RJ45 port of one RCM5700 dev board to the other RCM5700? Thanks. =)The RCM5700 comes without a RJ45 jack mounted on the board. Does Rabbit plan on making a RCM5700 available with the RJ45 jack ? And if not, what's involved in placing one on the module.I'm having problem in connecting my rcm5700 to a network. I have tried to connect from the ethernet port of rcm5700 to the internet modem in my house using ethernet cable. However, when I open the network administrator to check the IP address of the rcm5700 I can't find the device there, which means it is not connected to the network. Can anyone help me with this problem? Is there any specific ethernet cable that I should use? Or is it possible that the ethernet port of the rcm5700 is not working?This is my first questions on this forum. I would like to know if is possible to connect SD card with RCM5700 core modules and how we could control with Dynamic C libraries Which hardware interface we have to use (SPI, etc)? is there any hardware application note about it? Thanks in advanceHi all, I am beginning to develop a system using an RCM5700 module and an LCD. I was evaluating two different LCD types: 1) a graphical LCD (64x128 pixels)with S1D10605 controller inside and touchscreen (4 wire) 2) a 16x2 alphanumeric LCD with KS0070B controller inside Did someone experience with one of this two controller? The graphical LCD need more development time and I am not able to find libraries that allow to control this LCD. I am thinking to control the touchpad with the Analog Device IC AD7843: did someone use this component? For the alphanumerical LCD the use seems easier. It is possible ...Hi, A install a extra sram AS7C34096 into the RCM5700 board. The external ram works fine. It can store data, or running code in it. The external sram uses CS1 OE1. I am sure the external sram is OK, if I force the CS_RAM to CS1 OE1 WE1 for "store program in flash", MB2CR is 0xC5 which mean it point to the external sram. But if I change BOARDTYPES.LIB: #if _BOARD_TYPE_ == RCM5700 //the RCM5700 has only 128k of internal RAM available #ifdef _RAM_ #if __SEPARATE_INST_DATA__ #error "The RCM5700 does not support compiling to" #error " RAM when Separate IampD space is enabled." #fatal " Turn off Separate IampD or compile to ...In RCM3010,we can reserve some programme flash space for using FS2 filesytem.It's helpful for us to store some data in the system. But in DC10.44 I can't find FS2.lib surpport. Who can tell me if we can use fs2 filesytem in RCM5700?Hello I have a couple of questions to make with the rabbit core's series, I am a student of Electronic Engineer, and now I'm a working with a minicore RCM5700, my college will participate in a contest and we are using the rabbit in the project to control traffic lights and street illumination, however we are thinking in acquiring new rabbits however we want them to have wifi, so the doubts that we have it's what model we should buy, also which are the differences with the core and the minicore and which of them are better and also what ...I am trying to use part of the 1 MB of flash for logging some data. I have tried using the FAT file system, but there is a compilation error stating the board doesn't support FAT. It also states it needs the macro _DRIVER_CUSTOM. Doing a #use on the macro throws a slew of errors and warnings. Does the RCM5700 not support FAT at all? If not, what is the best method of using part of the flash for storage?Hi Is there any way to write and read data from flash memory of RCM5700 module? ThanksHi all, Can't find in the documentation, what is the max sink in 'mA' for each I/O pin in RCM5700. Any help will be appreciated. Tn'x in advance. MeirI have gotten a program written and tested on the RCM5700 (w/ Development boards) and was ready to deploy it but it won't run without DC running and connected to it. I HAVE "Compile to Flash" enabled in the project options menu. Is there a jumper or something that I have to put on the board to get the Flash write to take? I am also powering the board with an external supply so it's not removing power when I remove the USB cable. Any help would be appreciated. Len Morgan CRMWDI've just spent 10 days and a few hundred quid trying to find out why my ethernet interface for a RCM5700 wouldn't come up. It turns out that the PHY chip that rabbit use on this module (and possibly others) requies the ACT and LINK leds to be fitted and used, otherwise the interface will not come up. Share and enjoy!I got my RCM5700 deluxe development kit, got it all set up, loaded the software and found that programs would compile amp run about one time out of 25. The other 24 times I got a message like "While sending pilot bios an timeout occurred" or something along that line. A few calls to support, which were dropped on my end (thanks a million Verizon) didn't help much. Finally I moved to my laptop so I could use another phone to call support, but everything worked there. The biggest difference was that on my workbench machine the USB cable was ...Hi, I want to use sdflash.lib for RCM5700 series controllers . However library has definition only for RCM4300 . So, it displays following error : ERROR SDFLASH.LIB : On this target, you must define SD card macros by hand. So, i would like to know how should I define those configurations . A working set of configurations would be highly appreciable . Thanks and Regards , RahulHi, I use dsPIC microcontroller. I am dealing with flash programming in run time and want to write variable data in flash. I see the controller flash (program memory) has unimplemented memory space (read as 0's) in user memory space. I actually don't understand what this memory section is. Could it be used to store variable data? I can't find any information about why it is used in the device datasheet. pls see the program memory map ==gt program memory.PNG Any help is welcomed. Thanks in advance. ErhanHi, I would like to implement the following: a pc (with windows xp) will be connected to RCM5700 via ethernet port. a PPP link will be also created on RCM5700 using serial port and GPRS module. The PC will have internet access based on the GPRS ISP. Can someone help me understanding if the above is possible to implement? Thanks, YossiOn the back of my RCM5700 there is a spot for U8 (SRAM) i would like to know if i solder in the SRAM part and the acompaning C64,C65 amp R40 will i be able to use it.Hi, I have quite big program on my RCM5700. Its basically a webserver listening for connection request from a web enabled phone. As of now, it only has one peripheral (connected to an RF transceiver via SPI serial port B) My problem is, the behavior of my program is very unpredictable. Just to let you know, its timing sensitive (sending and receiving of data via the RF transceiver must occur in a certain time frame) Anyway, there are times that the program works flawlessly. Next time you know, (maybe after a restart of my computer where the RCM5700 is connected via USB ...hi i have just changed to use RCM5750 in my projects. but when i want to load my program into the minicore of RCM5750, it always has the error "NO ID BLOCK FOUND ON THE TARGET BOARD" anyone knows how to solve this problem? i didnt have this problem when i used RCM5700.. i really need a reply from anyone of you.thanks a lot..
