• Add 10/100 network capabilities to your Arduino platform
• Built in Micro SD socket to allow you to store files or to use as a server
• Arduino compatible shield
• Use with smart devices to access or control your ArduinoWhat is the Arduino Ethernet Shield R3?
The Arduino Ethernet Shield R3 allows the addition of networking capabilities as well as the ability to store and host files. The 10/100Mb Ethernet controller allows you to use any other networked device to communicate with your Arduino project. For example you can reset your Arduino, or give it commands from your mobile phone while across the world.
This shield also has a Micro SD card socket enabling file storage and hosting, which is great if you’re looking to host your own mini server or keeping your files with you wherever you go.
This enables you to attach it to most Arduino related development boards that have the same pin layout. Connect to development boards without the need of jump leads or soldering, maximising the amount of space you have to work with while maintaining a tidy finish.
This shield is a middle layer shield, as it uses stacking pins so you can add further breakout. Some shields may fit without header extensions, just be cautious of the RJ45 socket.
How can I get the most out of my project?
The on-board Wiznet W5100 Ethernet chip provides a network (IP) stack capable of both TCP and UDP. It supports up to four simultaneous socket connections.
Works perfectly with Arduino’s Ethernet library to allow your sketches to connect to the internet through the shield.
