FIMS provide custom interfaces for tailoring the module tothe users' exact application needs.

He said the ME 9210 is the first embedded module to feature an integrated, NIST-certified AES accelerator that provides secure network communication with SSL/TLS and IPsec protocols.

The accelerator encrypts and decrypts data streams up to 10 times faster than a software-only solution and provides strong data privacy for any customer information stored or transmitted by the module.

The Digi Connect ME 9210 also features power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support to allow the design of devices that require no external power, and Digi Dynamic Power Control, a complete set of hardware and software features for product designs that demand low-power consumption and advanced power management.
