since it’s not possible to check the link status from the W5100 chip registers, could it be possible for a future revision of the FEZ connect to put a pad somewhere on the Link line so that we could put/solder a 1 pin header and then connect it to a digital pin ? This way, we could check the Link status easily.
Right now, the only solution is to solder a small wire on the Link Led (or the resistor), which is not very “elegant” solution, I think. Especially with 0805 SMDs :-[
We still have some of these but they are not listed anymore. Those are great products fro sure but they do not work with any of the new products and we have replacements already, we have gadgeteer displays and Ethernet modules.
Note to all USBizi lovers - if we can collectively come up with enough interest for 10 FEZ Ultimate kits (RE Gus’ offer for bulk discount) , I would be happy to order them and reship. I’m good for three.
Im buy Panda II and Connect shield few month’s ago, because there is not avalible any cheap board which have LAN and other functionalyty which PandaII offer… I hope that some day GHI will offer some new product, maybe something based on G120 module…
FEZ Certbuino Bee with ENC28 Ethernet module cost little more than Panda II + Connect shield but:
Does RTC work or have BUG like Cerberus or Cerb40(As Im read somewhere on forum)?
Does have in-field update?
Does support idle/hibernate?
What Im talking is that when you will dicontinue PandaII + Connect shield and not release replacement with premium library’s(And all functions will work) users will not have cheap and good product like Panda… They will have only one option which is Cobra(EMX module) and is more than half expensive…
Our success comes from fulfilling your guys needs and making you happy. We will continue to do just that and nothing else.
How do you like your panda to be updated with 16MB of RAM? Or double the clock frequency? Or 4MB more flash? And with TFT display support? Dedicated USB host? Still low price? And with wifi support?!
Wouldn’t that sound great?
You guys are comparing Cerbuino to panda too much like it is a replacement. These 2 products are from complete different categories. I suggest Cerbuino as an option, a very good option, but still not a direct replacement to panda.
You won’t be disappointed but we can’t show all of our cards yet. We are only asking you to give us some time We just finished 4 new mainboards and more to come.
Want a teaser? See attached image that I am not suppose to show you and there is MORE! I am sorry but I can’t answer any of your questions about it. Ok that you saw it, it is removed The point is that there is more to come.
