A quick update on Netduino.IP...

The Microchip ENC28J60 chip that we use on Netduino Plus 2 is tried-and-true. But it's also tried-in-true as in a "last decade's technology" kind of way.

We have found an awesome new SPI-based networking chip for the next generation of Netduino hardware. Please allow me to introduce the Asix AX88796C.

This networking chip has PC-class features. It is high performance and low power (including power management features). It supports both 10mbps and 100mbps, auto-crossover, wake on LAN and more.

In a nutshell, it is one awesome networking chip.

So of course, we have built a Netduino.IP link layer driver for this chip. 100% managed code. And that driver code is now checked into the Netduino.IP repo at GitHub.

Wake-On-Lan...  will that factor into the capabilities of the N+3 natively, or is that not likely?

Hi Sukasa,

What would you like WOL to do on the board? It's already in a pretty low power mode normally. Would you like the board to go into a deeper sleep--and then wake up when WOL is received? Or trigger code via an event, etc.?

P.S. The next-gen Netduino Plus board is called Netduino 3 Ethernet. Announcement coming soon, in stock on 30-Jun-2015.

Chris
