The Dangerous Prototypes web platform is a tiny server designed for networked hacks where a full PC is inconvenient. There’s lots of interesting projects that bridge the internet to microcontrollers, but most of them have a PC in the middle to handle network stuff. This business card-sized internet appliance can connect to web services, control physical objects from a browser interface, or email sensor status reports; no PC intermediary required!

My web platform has just arrived. Now what?

Learn about the web platform design.

The original web platform blog post has been moved here and updated. You can still find the original article and comments here.



See the example HardwareProfile.h file for a complete list of peripheral connections.




Microchip TCP/IP stack

The Microchip TCP/IP stack is freely available, but we can't distribute the code. There is now an archive of older versions, Microchip Application Libraries v2010-02-09 (TCPIP stack v5.20b) should work. The version 5.36.2 stack also works with some bug fixes (see SD card web server demo article below for details).

uIP TCP/IP stack

uIP is an open source TCP/IP stack that currently has fewer features than the Microchip stack.



Other demos


The web platform uses the ds30 Loader GPL licensed bootloader.


We're here to help when you need it.


PIC Tutorials

These general tutorials from the tutorial page apply to the web platform.





  • PCB art: CC-0/ CC-BY-SA*
  • Bootloader: GPL (from ds30 Loader project)
  • Firmware: CC-0 (see source, excluding Microchip TCP/IP stack)
  • The web platform is a development board and we believe that you should be able to use it (or parts of it) however you want. We release our parts of the PCB and schematic into the public domain (or Creative Commons 0, your choice). All recent hardware files use custom parts, but the first version of the web platform used a FTDI chip and USB jack from SparkFun's CC-BY-SA part library and were CC-BY-SA.
