Serial-to-Ethernet bridge using MCF51CN Family and FreeRTOS

Posted: 03 Aug 2009 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:MCF51CN128? serial-to-Ethernet? RTOS? open-source?

This application note describes a serial-to-Ethernet bridge using the MCF51CN128, the open-source RTOS FreeRTOS v5.3.0 and the TCP/IP stack LwIP v1.3.0. Serial interfaces used are UART and SPI. Ethernet connects using a well-known socket implementation.

This document was written to help users enable older serial interface-related designs for Ethernet connectivity. Microcontrollers usually connect through interfaces like SCI (or UART) and SPI. For this particular application, the microcontroller used is the MCF51CN128, which supports Ethernet-based connectivity.

To take advantage of this document, it is not mandatory to have in-depth Ethernet protocol knowledge.
