Generic module for Ethernet with 17 GPIOs.
Status: Done, in use.
The Generic-Ethernet module is a small microcontroller board supposed to be connected to a Ethernet network, and run applications like a HTTP-server for remote monitoring or control. It can be extended using application specific expansion card that uses one or more of the 17 available I/Os or use the I/Os directly for simple applications like temperature reading or TTL actuators. The module program memory can be remotely updated over Ethernet using a Ethernet bootloader, see genericbootloader. The Generic-ethernet is a replacement for ethertemp.
A PCB equipped with a Microchip 18F2685/18F2550/18F2620 microcontroller and a ENC28J60 ethernet controller. Image to be added.
Firmware written in Microchip C18.
