Arduino Due with Ethernet

Post by audiobuzz » Wed Jan 09, 2013 5:37 am

Hi all,

I'm sure it's on your radar at some point but with the release of the new Arduino Due the only option we currently have for ethernet is a shield. I love the EtherTen and use it for multiple projects but the power of a 32bit processor with onboard ethernet would be awesome.

The chip on the Due has a built in Ethernet MAC so maybe this could be used but honestly I'd be happy with a wiznet based solution for the moment.

Anyway, just thought I'd add my vote. Keep up the excellent work.

<Stamping my feet and demanding it now>

I've got a network of Etherten-Unos and I need more computing power.
If you guys can do this I'll buy 4 boards right now.

come on Jon
Pleazze !!!

Might be a bit tricky at the moment - the AT91SAM3X8E is difficult to get in volume. Nevertheless I'm sure Marc and Jon are thinking about it.

I thought that would be the case, everyone who can get it is running hot with sales. LittleBird is out of stock too, so I ordered a couple from China for now for development, but still prefer a combined ether and Due.
So when you have the chance to do it, I'll be waiting. I prefer Freetronics quality control.

If you're busting to get a real Due, element14 have some. Part 2250861

Yes, I came across those. However the ebay chap seems ok. Qty 2 just squeezed in below AU$100 and I'm happy with the deal. I'll let you folks know how they turn out.

I have been using these two boards now for a number of weeks and I'm happy with the purchase. The programmer interface is on a separate smaller board, which according to the manufacturer "saves costs" but for the price I paid, I did'nt care about buying the extra programmer board. The manufacturing quality is decent. It's still on ebay.

It's been a while, but you'll be happy to hear we're doing hardware prototypes now for the EtherDue - which is exactly what it sounds like! The final production version should be available in about 6 weeks.
