Any chip exsisted for TCP/IP?

Started by kathy September 18, 2006
Is any chip exsisted which has TCP/IP hardware and software implemented
inside the chip so that to use the TCP/IP communication can be done
easily? I am not familair with the TCP/IP and want to find quick way to
implement our system with TCP/IP connection.

Also, the develop tools is better C(although a few  assembly is OK).

The Rabbit module is OK but it is NOT a chip. I would like a chip - it
is more compact.

You Don't have to buy the Module... you can buy the Rabbit 4000 Chip

Take a look at this: http://www.ubicom.com/processors/ip2000/ip2000_family.html

Have a look at this thread [ http://groups.google.com/group/comp.arch.embedded/browse_frm/thread/e68c3ee6feb0655e/# ]. I would say it depends how much you want to invest;-) there area few products ready to go with just serial interface (digi for example or http://www.semiconductorstore.com/images/Items/Lantronix/XPort_blockdiagram.jpg ) to send data to RJ45. Other cheap solutions involve building IP stack, taking care of MAC layer and etc and doing almost every thing by your self (Realtek http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/products1-2.aspx?modelid=1 etc.). ali

Obviousely anybody can buy the Rabbit 4000 chip :-) However, it would not help the OP at all. The chip alone incorporates a 10Base-T MAC, but that's it. No internal RAM, ROM or FLASH memory to start with and alas this is definately not what the OP is looking for. The OP stats he/she is not familiar with TCP/IP and searches a quick redy, single chip solution to interface from what I supose existing product. The digi or lantronix products sugested by another poster fit the bill IMHO of the OP quite well. Markus
Rabbit 4000 Chip implement TCP/IP stack? I will check it.

Hi.

Take a look at Maxim.  They have a uC (with MAC) that has TCP/IP
firmware included.  You just need to add a PHY chip.
