The EM500 is an ultra-compact Tibbo BASIC/C-programmable IoT Module with Ethernet and optional Wi-Fi* connectivity. The EM500 has one UART.

The first member of our MiniMo® family, the EM500 is designed to be used in tandem with a standard RJ45 magnetics jack. The combined footprint of the EM500 and a typical jack is only 28.5 x 18.5mm (1.12 x 0.73″).

Compact dimensions, space-saving “vertical slice” form factor, low power consumption, and economical pricing make the module an excellent fit for miniature, cost-sensitive “connected” devices.

Module testing and evaluation can be performed with our EM500EV development system.

* Requires the GA1000 Wi-Fi add-on to be connected externally.

Here is How You Can Use the EM500

As a Serial-over-IP (SoI) Device

Serial-over-IP conversion is a large part of what we do, and there is an entire section of our website dedicated to serial converters (a.k.a. “serial device servers”). We offer a free open-source serial-over-IP (SoI) app that turns the EM500 into a full-featured serial-to-IP converter.

Build Your Own IoT Solution

The EM500 is programmable in Tibbo BASIC and Tibbo C. Develop your very own IoT solution from scratch or take inspiration from our open-source applications and code samples published in the Code and Apps section.
