This PCB is the perfect solution for all designs with ethernet and microcontroller. IoT-ready, 100% arduino compatible!
There is a big advantage of the W5500 to every standard-solution: The TCP/IP-stack is implemented completely in hardware. So you need nearly no programming on you main-proceossor. Do you still do TCP/IP in software and waste a lot of RAM or are you ready for the W5500?
You can talk via SPI with the chip. How this works is shown in our Dokuwiki.
The pre-programmed AtXmega8E5 initialize the W5500 with a unique MAC and a IP (choosable via solderjumper). So your programming effort is reduced even more!
You can find a lot of demo-code on our Github page.
The USART-connector is FTDI-standard.
All parts are already mounted.
The PCB needs 5V or 3.3V and can be used with any kind of target-pcb based on 5V or 3.3V. For example all ARM-boards, Arduino, ...
The 10-pin SPI-header is compatible with the Roboternetz-standard and can be used directly with the aTeVaL-Board.
