Ethernet Communication with PIC Microcontroller

image-158
In this series of PIC Microcontroller Communication, after learning on how PIC Microcontroller Communication with I2C, SPI, RS232 and USB can be achieved, in this article we are going to discuss the concepts of Ethernet Communication with PIC Microcontroller. When it comes to communication involving wires, Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to each other. With just a switch, many different devices can easily communicate with one another with Ethernet, allowing devices and equipment to be accessed remotely and provides a cost-effective and reliable means of monitoring or controlling such equipment, for example a person could monitor several vending machines located in different places which can be several kilometers apart from the PC at the conform of your desk. A simple online interface to the vending machines can allow you to monitor everything from the internet.

Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to one another. With just a network switch, many different devices can easily communicate with one another with Ethernet, allowing different devices and equipment to be accessed remotely and this also provides a cost-effective and reliable means of remote control and monitoring, home automation, Internet of Things applications and many more. If you are using a microcontroller which does not have an integrated Ethernet peripheral, Microchip offers a serial Ethernet chip that can easily be used by any microcontroller with an SPI interface to provide Ethernet capability to the application. many compilers offer peripheral libraries to get you started in minutes.

For microcontrollers which don't have an integrated Ethernet peripheral, Microchip offers a serial Ethernet chip that can easily be used by any microcontroller with an SPI interface to provide Ethernet capability to the application. The ENC28J60 is a popular 28-pin serial Ethernet chip, 10BASE-T stand alone Ethernet Controller with SPI interface, on board MAC & PHY, 8 Kbytes of Buffer RAM and an SPI serial interface. In this article we will learn how to use the ENC28J60 Ethernet controller with MikroC Pro for PIC SPI Ethernet ENC28J60 Library.

Getting Started with Arduino

Arduino is the open source electronics prototyping platform. It has become popular in the world of hobbyists, students, artists, programmers and professionals. Arduino was born as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. All Arduino boards are completely open-source, empowering users to build them independently and eventually adapt them to their particular needs. The software, too, is open-source, and it is growing through the contributions of users worldwide.

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is a small credit card sized computer, It is very cheap compared to the traditional computers, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has arrangements with a few manufacturers from whom you can buy a Pi directly at $25 - $35. The Raspberry Pi unlike the traditional computer, it has the ability to integrate with electronics projects. Raspberry Pi to control devices that a microcontroller can control like LEDs, relays, LCDs etc. A Raspberry Pi is better used where more processing power and connectivity is needed like for exemple when you want to remotely access a temperature sensor via the web to change its settings and download temperature log files and more in general Internet of Things (IoT) and Home Automation applications you should consider using the Raspberry Pi.

Getting Started with ESP8266 WiFi Transceiver
