Product Description:

The Arduino MKR ETH Shield (ASX00006) is designed to offer a high-speed and reliable Ethernet connection to any MKR family board. It’s equipped with a W5500 Ethernet controller for internet connectivity and a Micro SD Card slot for data logging and storing larger files. The W5500 controller supports both TCP and UDP and can handle up to eight simultaneous socket connections. This shield is particularly useful for projects in environments where electromagnetic noise is present or special safety requirements are in place.

 

Specifications:

  • Operating Voltage: 3.3V
  • Connector Type: RJ45 female
  • Compatibility: MKR family of Arduino boards
  • Pin Usage: Important pins include SD CS (Pin 4), ETH CS (Pin 5), MOSI (Pin 8), SCK (Pin 9), and MISO (Pin 10). It’s noted that if the MKR board already has an SD slot, it may conflict with the shield’s slot.

 

The shield’s design allows for easy integration with the Arduino ecosystem, supporting Ethernet 2 Library for internet connectivity and SD Library for SD card operations. The sharing of the SPI bus between the W5500 and the SD card requires attention in programming to ensure that only one is active at a time, a process managed by the corresponding libraries.
