Lantronix Unveils MatchPort NR, Network-Enabling Virtually Any Device, Anywhere -- Designed to Save Time and Cost for OEM Partners

Simple Module-Swap Allows Customers to Switch From Wireless to Wired Connectivity, and Vice Versa

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2010) - Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading provider of secure, remote device networking and data center management technologies, today announced the availability of MatchPort® NR, the newest addition to the popular MatchPort family of device servers. Pin-for-pin and form factor compatible with the MatchPort wireless device server, the MatchPort NR allows customers to easily configure their products for wired or wireless connectivity with the swap of a module. MatchPort NR is a full-featured, secure, embedded, wired networking device server module. Additional inputs and outputs (I/O) enable MatchPort NR to accommodate the demanding application requirements found in medical equipment, security, retail, manufacturing, building automation, smart metering and slot machines.

Continuing the family of form-factor and pin-compatible wireless and wired device networking platforms, MatchPort NR enables OEMs to implement an Ethernet networking solution within their products through a reliable and industry-proven solution to match their price and performance requirements. With a simple connection between the device microcontroller's serial port and one of MatchPort NR's two serial ports, OEMs can create feature-rich applications, all while saving on design costs and enabling faster time-to-market.

"Having a pin-compatible family of embedded products allows our customers to easily interchange a wired or wireless solution that significantly shortens development time and reduces risk of developing robust and secure Ethernet connectivity," said Paul Pishal, vice president of product marketing at Lantronix. "OEMs need a solution enabling easy design, guaranteed to be compatible with industry standards and affordable. The MatchPort family provides ultimate design flexibility with a choice of media-independent 802.11 b/g or Ethernet networking modules. It takes the complexity out of RF design and embedded Ethernet networking so you can focus on designing your products."

MatchPort NR is the fourth member of the MatchPort product family of pin/form factor-compatible device networking platforms. The MatchPort family enables OEMs to future-proof their designs with the flexibility of delivering wired or wireless connectivity on the same board design with a choice of modules offering an array of price and performance options. The family also includes MatchPort b/g Pro (embedded device server with an advanced operating system and Web Server technologies that delivers WiFi networking with the highest levels of security), MatchPort AR (turnkey, application-ready programmable device server module with highly secure Ethernet connectivity and advanced Web server capabilities), and the MatchPort b/g (full-featured, secure, embedded 802.11 b/g device server module).
