TCP Performance

This week I working on the TCP network performance. I needed to collect the data and make a graph for analyzing purposes.  I had collected 15 samples for…

Ethernet and SD-Card Connections

In the first two weeks of the project I was reading and trying to grasp the basics of PCB design and KiCAD. This week I put this knowledge…

Week5: Ethernet Controller (Cont’d) and Spartan-6 Schematics

Previously, the PIC18 was programmed to emulate 3 separate slave SPI devices – an ADC, a Flash memory and an Ethernet controller! The final task proved to be…

Week4: Emulating ADC, Flash Memory and Ethernet Controller with the PIC18

Week Four! How time flies, it’s been nearly a month since I first stepped into the office of Aeste. Continuing from our previous work of setting up a…

Week 5 – TCP/IP Layer

I continued where I left off from last week; setting up the physical layer for Ethernet connection. After taking a good look at the documentation available, I realized…

Week 4 – Ethernet Layer

This week I started work on the network connections from the chip, mainly the ETHERNET communication from MCU to network. I was fairly new to the subject but…
