EtherCard

Travis Status

EtherCard is a driver for the ENC28J60 chip, compatible with Arduino IDE. Adapted and extended from code written by Guido Socher and Pascal Stang.

License: GPL2

The documentation for this library is at http://jeelabs.net/pub/docs/ethercard/.

Library Installation

  1. Download the ZIP file from https://github.com/jcw/ethercard/archive/master.zip
  2. From the Arduino IDE: Sketch -> Include Library... -> Add .ZIP Library...
  3. Restart the Arduino IDE to see the new "EtherCard" library with examples

See the comments in the example sketches for details about how to try them out.

Physical Installation

PIN Connections (Using Arduino UNO):

VCC -   3.3V
GND -    GND
SCK - Pin 13
SO  - Pin 12
SI  - Pin 11
CS  - Pin  8 # Selectable with the ether.begin() function

PIN Connections using an Arduino Mega

VCC -   3.3V
GND -    GND
SCK - Pin 52
SO  - Pin 50
SI  - Pin 51
CS  - Pin 53 # Selectable with the ether.begin() function
# The default CS pin defaults to 8, so you have to set it on a mega:
ether.begin(sizeof Ethernet::buffer, mymac, 53)

Support

For questions and help, see the forums (at JeeLabs.net). The issue tracker has been moved back to Github again.

Related Work

There are other Arduino libraries for the ENC28J60 that are worth mentioning:

  • UIPEthernet (Drop in replacement for stock Arduino Ethernet library)
  • EtherShield (no longer maintained, predecessor to Ethercard)
  • ETHER_28J60 (no longer maintained, very low footprint and simple)
