phalox decided to build his own version of 1D pong with the TCP/IP stack: Not just being a copycat, I really had to add a bit of extra mustard. In this case an entire TCP/IP stack! This results in a network connected 1D Pong game, in which you can have as many nodes (players) as you would […]
Microchip jumped into open source last spring with the chipKIT Arduino-compatible development boards and open compiler/IDE. They wanted to tap the existing tutorials, enthusiasm, and customer base of Arduino community, and they were going to play nice with open source. A review of the chipKIT situation today is disappointing. The compiler still replies on closed […]
The goal of this tutorial is to use the ATC-1000M with the Arduino. Our ATC-1000M came integrated in a TCP/IP to serial shield. This shield can be used by an Arduino to connect to a LAN or wireless router.
The uIP TCP/IP stack for the web platform now lists and reads files from an SD card. You can now read files and list directories from the SD card. There’s also a ‘sddump’ command that will dump sectors from the sd card in the same way that memdump dumps memory, for troubleshooting. The latest uIP […]
There’s some new features in Bonybrown’s uIP TCP/IP stack project for the web platform. Some notable changes are: The code runs 3 “tasks” that it multitasks between. One for the IP stack, one for the serial port (debugging help) and another for a handler for telnet (port 23). The telnet server task is pretty easily […]
Another update on the uIP TCP/IP stack port for the web platform. Bonybrown has added even more features: Periodic uIP processing now works, driven from RTCC alarm interrupt (500mS). Added start for simple round-robin co-operative task switcher. Latest code is in the SVN. Previous updates here.
Here’s another update on the uIP TCP/IP stack port for the web platform. Bonybrown got the uIP stack to work with interrupts from the ENC28J60, and used DMA to transfer buffers to PIC memory. Performance wise – no real difference I can see from the ping times; theoretically, the biggest improvement will be in “responsiveness” […]
Trev got the Microchip telnet server demo working on the web platform. Then, he took it further and hacked it to work with telnet clients on multiple systems. There’s a lot of great info about the Microchip TCPIP stack and telnet services in his writeup. We covered Trev’s earlier work with the Microchip TCP/IP stack […]
A few months ago we started a port of the uIP TCP/IP stack for the dsPIC33-based web platform. Bonybrown picked up the source and got it working. The current version can accept 10 simultaneous telnet connections, and has ping times of 0.68ms: Next steps I’d like to try are to replace the polling loop with […]
lme shared a Perl script that feeds text files to the #twatch through the Matrix Orbital-compatible TCP/IP server. The project SVN has several example scripts for the #twatch, if you’ve got something interesting we’d like to host a copy. Thanks for the tip! Via the forum.
