Arduino Ethernet Shield

June 8, 2009

I’m excited. My Arduino Ethernet Shield arrived from Little Bird Electronics last week. It is cool having the Arduino pingable on my network!

I have quickly hacked the SimpleMessageSystem to respond to commands over TCP/IP rather than the serial port and it seems to work ok. I have to code some more error checking and handing of the write commands but it shouldn’t be too difficult. I’ll have to see how I go about sending in my changes to Arduino’s site. Maybe I will just post a link to the networked version on my site. It will make interfacing with the Arduino from web pages (such as PHP like I am going to do!) far easier than through the serial port.

Check out the pictures below of the board and the software. It is in a very alpha stage but hopefully I should have something worth downloading in the future (probaby distant future).
