The chipKIT Network Shield is an input/output expansion
board designed for use with the chipKIT Max32™. It provides the
additional circuitry and connectors to allow the advanced communications
features of the PIC32MX795F512L on the Max32 to be utilized.
The Network Shield provides a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PHY to allow
connection to an Ethernet network. It provides the connectors and load
switch to support use of the USB 2.0 OTG controller to implement USB
device, USB host or OTG operation. It also provides two CAN transceivers
and connectors to allow connection to two independent CAN networks.
Connectors are provided to allow connection to two of the I2C busses supported by the Max32.
In addition to the communications features, the Network Shield also adds a 256Kbit I2C
EEPROM for non-volatile data storage and a 32.768Khz oscillator to
allow use of the Real Time Clock/Calendar (RTCC) peripheral in the PIC32
The Network Shield is designed to the same form factor as the Max32 board.
