Hey Chris, wondering if you had any other updates on the ethernet module? :D

Quick update: We finished validation on most of the circuitry on our Ethernet module samples today. Man, these new chips are nice. And the simplified ACT LED is really responsive. I even tested with mIP... We have a few last items to check off before we put these on the production line, but at this point it looks like we're good to go. I can't wait to get these out to everyone :) BTW, if anyone wants to see the Ethernet modules in person...I'll be bringing one of our validation samples with me to MakerFaire this weekend. Chris

Awesome! Thanks for the update Chris. Any pics for the out of state folks? ;)

Ooh, good idea. We should have the newest modules at MakerFaire and a few surprises (including a marzipan one).

Erik promised to drop by, and Stefan will be there. I'm sure there will be lots of photos :)

Will this new ethernet module work with regular System.Net classes?

I went the Gadgeteer ENC28J60 socket S with mIP route on my Netduino Go. I think mIP is cool, and I have hacked it for my purposes. But, I would prefer not to debug packets. I would prefer to get something more standard out of the box with Micro Framework support built in.

Yes.

You'll be able to re-use your Netduino Plus projects on Netduino Go + Ethernet module.

And yes, mIP is pretty cool!

Is there any timeframe at this point, for when you expect the modules to be ready for shipping (a realistic timeframe)... seems like those 10 days of testing back in July is still going on, and I've seen many other statements, where it was just a matter of a few weeks - months ago. Of course it's better to have a working product, except from a beta, but it does seem to me, that you don't really knows it either and just mentions X weeks/days. Straight out of the box, can an European be expecting to have his own Secret Labs Netduino Go Ethernet Module before November?

It takes about 4 weeks for production and 1 week for shipping to Europe. We expect to get Ethernet modules to European resellers in November in time for the holiday season.

I will post an update as soon as we push these off into production. In the meantime you can also use mIP with an ENC28J60 Gadgeteer module, use an ENC28J60 breakout, etc. Those won't give you native System.Net networking, but they'll get you network capabilities today.

Hi Chris,

I expect you're sick to death with these requests :) But as the last update to this thread was Septemeber would you be able to fill us in on progress with the Ethernet module? Are things still looking on time for November as per your last post?

Thanks for all your hardwork.

James.

We've made a lot of progress. Since the ENC28J60 driver runs at a native code level, and since GoBus currently integrates at the managed code layer, it's a lot more work than we anticipated.

I will have an update on the Ethernet module for you on 5-Nov-2012. Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm; I'm really excited about how the new Ethernet hardware is turning out and I appreciate you coming along on this journey with us.

Hi Chris,

That's brilliant. Thank you for the update - I'll be watching the forums like a Hawk on the 5th B)

Having the Ethernet capability using the built in MF System.Net classes I'm sure will spurt a lot of growth with the basic electronics fan folk like myself :D

James.

Quick update: update will be on 8-Nov-2012. Sorry for the extra delay; power has been out here for the last week due to Sandy.

I got to see the sample on-hand at Maker Faire. It's really compact! I've heard some of the issues that have cropped up and had to be worked out. They're being really thorough and as anxious as I am to get my hands on the final production module, I'm much happier knowing the module will work well when it is available. I think we're in the final stretch! I just hope there isn't too much delay between the announcement and shipping. I know some delivery services in NYC are still not operating in parts of the city. There are fuel shortages, power is still out in some places and infrastructure has been damaged. Fingers crossed this won't have too much of an effect!

Hi, Yes fingers crossed too, there was loads of coverage of Hurricane Sandy from this side of the pond (UK) - it looks chaotic! So, as Secret Labs have now released the N+2, which as far as I'm aware is using the same Ethernet controller as the soon to be Ethernet module, does that mean we're looking at a release of this module soon? B) I'm so so anxious to get this module going, I think Secret labs will make a lot of sales from this product ;)

I was a early adopter of the Netduino Go, but it has sat languishing on my bench while I am waiting for the Ethernet module.   It is always just around the corner.  Please give us an update.

Looks good! I'm very interested in Ethernet, SD card and ambient light modules too. Request for statement! ^_^

 

Kind regards
