Welcome to the Microchip Ethernet Application Design Center.

Ethernet solutions are gaining popularity in the embedded connectivity space. There are several key reasons that drive such adoption. Ethernet is ubiquitous and it is the most widely deployed network in many offices and industrial buildings. It is based on IEEE802.3 that ensures reliability of network connections and data transmission. Moreover, the networks are scalable from the simplest to most complex networks. Finally, once equipment is connected to the network, it can be monitored or controlled through the internet.

Microchip addresses the growing demand for a small and low-cost embedded Ethernet solution by offering the following:

10/100 Base-T ENC624J600 standalone Ethernet controllers which are IEEE 802.3 compliant, integrated with hardware cryptographic security engines and factory preprogrammed unique MAC address. This family is fully compatible with 10/100/1000 Base-T networks

10 Base-T ENC28J60 standalone Ethernet controller and the PIC18F97J60 family, which are IEEE 802.3 compliant and fully compatible with 10/100/1000 Base-T networks

Free licensed and robust TCP/IP stack, which is optimized for the PIC18, PIC24 and PIC32 microcontroller and dsPIC digital signal controller families

EUI-48™ and EUI-64™ enabled MAC address chips along with Serial EEPROM functionality

A broad range of development tools to enhance the user’s experience

With Microchip’s scalable development environment and free TCP/IP stack, you can quickly integrate Ethernet functions into your existing application, thus reducing development risk, total system cost and time to market.
