Microchip ENC28J60 Project

at 7:35 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks


Kenneth Finnegan is working on a project to allow his microcontroller projects talk to the magical world of Ethernet. Without special systems like an ioBridge module a typical project would only dream of speaking to other systems unless a computer was introduced in the mix. Kenneth is using the Microchip ENC28J60 to do the heavy lifting in this case and by using a proto board from ElectroBoards the final result is quite small. We have featured this Ethernet Weather Station in the past if you need more Ethernet project ideas!

Microchip’s ENC28J60 is a 28-pin, 10BASE-T stand alone Ethernet Controller with on board MAC & PHY, 8 Kbytes of Buffer RAM and an SPI serial interface.
