EtherTen

Post by skiphod » Sun Apr 26, 2015 6:54 am

I just received a new EtherTen board. The Wiznet W5100 ethernet chip looks to have about 25 of its pins bridged together with solder. Is this some strange manufacturing technique or is it a defect? I'd hate to waste everybody's time going back to the distributor if it is normal.

It's fine, quite a few of them are bridged on purpose.
If you're curious you can check out the design files from the links at the bottom of the EtherTen page:

Thanks. With this assurance I plugged it in. It works fine.
