    MSSLite Overview

    Lantronix’s MSSLite Device Server enables OEM customers to integrate network-enabling technology into their designs. The MSSLite is designed on a compact 3.3″ by 2.3″ board with convenient header options for serial or DMA bus connections, external/internal and regulated/unregulated power options, and options for an internal or external Ethernet interface. Additional options include LEDs and a power backed-up real-time clock.

    The MSSLite provides a mature and robust Lantronix TCP/IP protocol stack. This software allows the MSSLite to facilitate direct uploads of data to a selected host or multiple selected hosts, handle polling or specific requests from networked hosts and provide management information to network requestors even while data transfers are in progress. Support for DHCP, TFTP, BOOTP, RARP, SNMP and Telnet ensures easy and consistent interoperability in an IP networking environment.

    In addition, Lantronix’s software makes it possible to run existing software on networked PCs that was previously limited to direct serial connections. This application transparency eliminates the need for OEM customers to develop costly new networked applications software.

    There are two MSSLite models, designated as MSSLite-B and MSSLite-C. The main differences between the models are their serial interfaces, power interfaces, LEDs, and the presence or absence of a real-time clock.
