Microchip’s new product has WizNet chip under the hood

KOREA: WIZnet has released the W5200 Ethernet PICtail (Plus) board that provides 10/100Mbps, half/full duplex Ethernet connectivity by onboard WIZnet W5200 Ethernet controller, which has hardwired TCP/IP processing engine.

The board has PICtail headers and PICtail Plus side-edge connectors designed to be plugged into the Explorer 16 (DM240001), PIC32 I/O Expansion Board (DM320002), PICDEM.net 2 (DM163024), PIC18 Explorer (DM183032), and other supported development boards.

The board has fast SPI interface, 2K EEPROM with EUI-48 Node Identity (MAC address) and RJ-45 connector. It also provides Auto-negotiation, Auto-MDI/MDIX, Power-Down Mode and Wake-on-LAN functionalities.

WIZnet’s W5200 Ethernet PICtail (Plus) board supports both Microchip software TCP/IP Stack and WIZnet hardwired TCP/IP Stack simultaneously on PIC18, PIC24, dsPIC and PIC32 platforms. The Hardwired TCP/IP Stack especially fits well for Simple Internet connectivity for PICs with small program memory size like PIC16.

* WIZnet W5200 Fast SPI Ethernet controller with Hardwired TCP/IP stack.
* Magnetic RJ-45 connector.
* Microchip 2K SPI bus serial EEPROM with EUI-48 node identity.
* Supports auto-negotiation, auto-MDIX, 10Base-T/100Base-TX.
* PICtail and PICtail Plus daughter board connection interface.
* Compatible with many boards with PICtail and PICtail Plus interfaces, including Explorer 16 development board, various PICDEM boards.

WIZnet has also introduced a mass production version of W5200 Ethernet PICtail Board, the WIZ820io. The WIZ820io has W5200, RJ45 and a couple of pin header(1x6) with 2.54mm pitch. After successful development with W5200 Ethernet PICtail Board, you can use WIZ820io as module, or use W5200 component on your board.
