Driver for ENC28J60 Ethernet chip

Post by WZab » Wed Jun 03, 2020 11:53 am

I have found a documentation to the ENC28J60 driver: https://software.open-dev.ru/docs/onlin ... 28J60.html
However I can't see the driver itself in the repository.
Does anybody know if that driver is going to be released?

With best regards,
Wojtek

Hi WZab,

I have seen your post and i searching also the implementation of the ENC-Driver. Do you have good news for this topic?

Hi Fork,

Unfortunately, the driver for ENC28J60 seems to be not available. There is documentation on the page I have referenced, but no sources.
There are a lot of drivers for Arduino (e.g. https://github.com/njh/EtherCard ), there are drivers in C, but nothing ready for use with MicroPython. That's really a pity, because it would enable creating simple safely interconnected devices...
Theoretically it should be possible to convert a driver written in C into a MicroPython driver, however an issue describing such a conversion still remains open - https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/2593 .

With best regards,
Wojtek

I have received information from open-dev.org, that the driver described in https://software.open-dev.ru/docs/onlin ... 8J60.html can't be released as open source.
It means that if we want an open MicroPython driver for ENC28J60 (it would be really nice), we have to do it ourselves.

With best regards,

Hi WZab,

Thanks for this informations. I saw also that driver available for Arduino. Probably I will switch with my project to the Arduino environment.
