Frankfurt Ethernet

A first batch of PCB’s are now ordered for the PIC version of the Frankfurth Eth card so we expect to see some working  prototypes under October.  This card has a lot of buffer capability to buffer CAN4VSCP events and a large external Flash for user interface.

Main use is Ethernet/TCP/IP <-> CAN4VSCP.  Just add the module to a CAN4VSCP segment and it will add TCP/IP connectivity to that segment attaching the segment  to a VSCP daemon or other software.  Also we will build a web interface on the module for diagnostic and other things.

This module will also be available in an ARM version later.

 

Ethernet boards and CAN4VSCP power

Two Ethernet boards designed.  That is Ethernet <-> CAN4VSCP. Powered from the CAN4VSCP bus as all other CAN4VSCP modules. Maybe there will be a version with generic Ethernet <-> CAN  as well in the future.

The board are designed in two versions. A Microchip PIC and an ARM version.  We will probably go for just one of them in the end.  This is the first step in a switch to ARM in our product line.

The Ethernet board will be able to plug and playish connect to the VSCP daemon but could also work alone on a segment and as a port out in the world for remote controlled equipment.

Need to sell some more of the other stuff before they can go into production though.  Earn money before spending them is the mantra here. So shop as crazy from the FrogShop. 😉

The other two modules are power injectors for CAN4VSCP. Two version. A big a and a small.  The samll version just powers a RJ-45 while the big have 16 daisy chain connectors.
