I just received my TI Launchpad and I'm wondering how can I add something like an Ethernet Shield from Arduino, in order to display a simple webpage... ?

Do you know any Ethernet shield for Launchpad?

  • \$\begingroup\$ of course i'm not saying the MSP by it's self, with some PIC or Wiznet controler to do the hard work :D \$\endgroup\$ – s.mihai Jan 5 '11 at 12:39

The Arduino Ethernet shield is built around the Wiznet W5100. The chip provides a complete TCP/IP stack and can ethernet.

Porting the Arduino driver code to the Launchpad should be fairly straightforward, you'll need SPI and a few control lines.

Here's some Launchpad SPI code of mine to get you started:

The Launchpad currently has no official shield standard though there are efforts afoot:
