What’s new in Version 2

What’s new for Version 2?

  • Multiple device support is coming!
  • Simple/Advanced configuration Parameters

After many requests, I have taken a look at the the interfacing between the various devices that WizNET supplies, and I am incorporating them in to one driver package.

The current Alpha package on GitHub has the W5100 and the W5200 integrated, and has been through some very quick testing on my bench.  Currently there are plans to eventually support the W5100, W5200 and the W5500 families.

I have moved some of the less used parameters to the advanced tab to improve the clarity of the configuration page of the driver.  I’m not a huge fan of the tabular entries, but, until I have enough time to work on a customizer, this is the best there is.  Functional, but not pretty.

As always, please remember that this is an Alpha version of the driver, and there will probably be some bugs.  If you should encounter a bug, or have a request, please let me know and I’ll do my best to get out a patch as quickly as I can.

    I appreciate the information in the w5200.
    Immediately, I build in Psoc5LP.

    I want to have a sample of UDP main.

      Thanks for checking out the driver. I’ve used it a lot with the 5LP and it should work well with UDP. But, I have to admit I’ve done much more testing using TCP. I’ll try to get together a test of the UDP and post it, but right now I’m integrating the W5500 device in to the driver.

    It’s impressive project for our W5100, W5200 and W5500 chip.
    I’m Eric, a firmware engineer of WIZnet. I am very interested in completion of your integrated version driver project.

    We are gathering great and awesome projects using our products.
    May I introduce your blog and project to our web site?

      thanks for the information, and the support of the project. I haven’t been working on it nearly as much as I would like, but soon, I hope to have some more time available to see this through. So far, I’ve managed to integrate the W5200 and the W5100 devices, and I have a version that sends what looks like the correct interface to the W5500, but I am unable to read the internal registers reliably. Probably it’s just a bug, but I’ve been so busy of late that there hasn’t been much time for driver development.

      Also, Please feel free to include the project on your site. I’m glad that I can provide a valuable resource to help others.
