The Ethernet Shield for Arduino connects your Arduino to the internet in mere minutes. Just plug this module onto your Arduino board, connect it to your network with an RJ45 cable(not included) and follow a few simple instructions to start controlling your world through the internet. As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – is freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it’s made and use its design as the starting point for your own circuits. Hundreds of thousands of Arduino boards are already fueling people’s creativity all over the world, everyday.
The Ethernet Shield for Arduino allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet. It is based on the Wiznet W5100 ethernet chip. The Wiznet W5100 provides a network (IP) stack capable of both TCP and UDP. It supports up to four simultaneous socket connections. Use the Ethernet library to write sketches which connect to the internet using the shield. The ethernet shield connects to an Arduino board using long wire-wrap headers which extend through the shield. This keeps the pin layout intact and allows another shield to be stacked on top.
Requires an Arduino board(not included)
Operating voltage 5V(supplied from the Arduino board)
Ethernet controller: W5100 with internal 16K buffer
Connection speed: 10 / 100Mb
Connection with Arduino on SPI port
The most recent revision of the board exposes the 1.0 pinout on rev 3 of the Arduino UNO board.
The Arduino Ethernet Shield has a standard RJ-45 connection, with an integrated line transformer and Power over Ethernet enabled.
