LPC1769 web interface board

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

For a school project, I wanted to make a web interface board. Sadly MSP430s just don't cut it for advanced applications. I wanted to make a powerful portable web server I could plug into certain projects. Majority of code base credit goes to Brad S, my partner in crime. Credit also a course also goes to RobG for his brilliant universal lcd lib.

 

Web server board has the following features:

 

ARM cortex m-3 LPC1769 MCU

LPC1769 USB mini device interface

SPI based micro SD card interface

W5200 web server

I also made a docking board which as an NRF wireless chip on it and one of Robs 2.2" LCD touch displays on it.

Also made a wireless interface board which goes in application you wish to control. This guy uses an msp430G2553.

Been a long work in progress.

Now thats what *I'm* talking about :smile:

 

I'd definitely be interested in reading about the design aspect of this project. School white paper, or whatever. This kind of project is what wulfman and I both have in mind later on down the road. Though we have though about it from several different approaches. Like using an android device, as kind of a master for external sensor / control devices. That sort of thing.

 

The very first embedded project I participated in used a rabbit semi board not all that dissimilar from this. Granted, the rabbit processor is far less capable, and of course is based on a completely different architecture (modified/modernized z80 as I recall ).

 

Looking forward to seeing where you and your partner  end up with this.

Any reason you decided to use the W5200 rather than the on board ethernet controller on the LPC1769?

 

Things have come a way since I made up a web board using a ARM7 and a W5300 in 2009.  I'm glad I'm not using ARM7 anymore.
