Welcome to the ARCNET Resource Center

ARCNET is designated as a high-speed local area network (LAN) well-suited for real-time control applications in both the industrial and commercial marketplaces. Its proven design, robust performance and the availability of low-cost silicon have made it the network of choice between embedded microcontrollers.

Originally developed by Datapoint Corporation in the mid-70s and moved to silicon in 1982, ARCNET continues to find new applications well beyond its original intention as a network for an Attached Resource Computer (ARCNET).  The ARCNET Resource Center (ARC) is a play on those original words.  The mission of ARC is to provide a single depository of information to assist designers, integrators and users of this robust networking technology.  Technical contributions to this resource center are encouraged from those who believe that ARCNET continues to play a unique role in embedded networking.

The ARCNET Trade Association (ATA) is no longer a structured organization of ARCNET users and manufacturers but instead has become a virtual organization carrying out its original mission by providing information and standards for users of ARCNET technology. The ATA maintains the ARCNET standard ATA 878.1-1999 which is available for free to the public by download.  All work is none by volunteers.

Sponsorship of the ARCNET Resource Center is by Contemporary Controls and Standard Microsystems Corporation (SMSC) – original sponsoring members of the ATA.   They fund the resource center’s development and maintenance while contributing technical material to educate the public.  Others contribute their time and effort without compensation. 

With the sale of more than 22 million nodes of ARCNET across the continents, this technology is alive and well in diverse industries. The ARCNET Resource Center will strive to provide as much assistance as possible to allow users around the globe to work smarter and more efficiently with this technology.

ARCNET is being used in a wide variety of embedded networking applications. Some examples of these applications are:

Nuclear Power Plant
