Ethernet Click Boards™
Add Ethernet functionality to your project with the ETH Click Board™ from MikroE. This accessory board is provided with a 28-pin, 10BASE-T stand-alone Ethernet controller, ENC28J60 by Microchip. Compliant with all of the IEEE 802.3 specifications, ENC28J60 chip uses the industry standard Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). The board also employs a Medium Access Controller (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) that provides additional functionality. ETH Click Board™ has an 8-Kbyte transmit/receive packet dual port SRAM with configurable transmit/receive buffer size. The board communicates with the host controller through an interrupt pin and the SPI communication lines with clock rates of up to 20 MHz. The ENC28J60 aboard ETH Click Board™ supports programmable automatic retransmit on collision as well as programmable automatic rejection of erroneous packet. ETH Click Board™ includes standard RJ-45 connector and LEDs for transmit, receive and power. The integrated crystal oscillator ensures stable operation. It is designed to operate with a 3.3V power supply only.
ETH Click Board™ is highly suitable for applications including VoIP, industrial automation, building automation, home control, security and instrumentation.
ETH Wiz Click Board™ carries W5500, a 48-pin, 10/100 BASE-TX standalone ethernet controller with a hardwired TCP/IP Internet protocol offload engine, along with a standard RJ-45 connector.
The EtherCAT Click Board™ is a compact add-on board that provides a cost-effective solution for realizing EtherCAT device solutions on various processors over the SPI interface. This board features the LAN9252, a 2-port EtherCAT device controller with dual integrated Ethernet PHYs from Microchip Technology. Each PHY contains a full-duplex 100BASE-TX transceiver and supports 100Mbps operation. The LAN9252 supports HP Auto-MDIX, allowing the use of direct connects or cross-over LAN cables. It communicates with MCU via a synchronous device SPI/SQI interface and can operate in Digital I/O Mode, where signals can be controlled or monitored by the EtherCAT Master. This Click board™ is suitable for industrial control, process/factory automation, hydraulic and pneumatic valve systems, power, and many more.
EtherCAT Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development. This Click board™ comes as a fully tested product, ready to be used on a system equipped with the mikroBUS™ socket.
