Has anyone done anything with the 18F97J60?
It has built-in ethernet and is used by Microchip's Picdem.net 2 dev board.
It also contains an ENC28J60 (standalone ethernet). I know that SF has a driver for the ENC28J60, but, not for any PIC based ethernet controllers.

I want to use SF with the picdem.net 2 board and use the external ENC28J60, but, SF complains that it doesn't support PIC's with ethernet hardware since I just happen to be using a 97J60.

If I want to use the 97J60's ethernet, I think I need to create a new mac layer driver for it.

Any thoughts on this? I really want to start using this demo board with SF!

Darryl,

If you look in the User module section, somebody did an ethernet module for it.
http://www.sfcompiler.co.uk/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=SwordfishUser.PIC18F97J60EthernetDriver

I've never used it, but it's sort of a self-contained package, and not a "driver" for the TCP/IP stack posted by David. Pretty low-level from what I see.

EDIT: oops, I see you want to use an external 2860. In that case, if you look in the mac.bas file, I think there's a couple of tests you could comment out that would let you do that. It assumes if you've got the 97J60, you want to use the internal hdw.

Sounds like a great venture - Could you keep us in the loop with your findings Darryl?

Does anyone else have a PicDem.net2 board or a 18F97J60? I'm having a few issues with the 97J60 MAC driver and would appreciate some help.

Are you trying to write a 97J60 driver that would work with David's Mchip TCP/IP stack port or are you trying to work with the Florin's PIC18F97J60EthernetDriver user module?

I haven't used the 97J60, but I did write a driver for David's stack and the ENC424J600, so I've been through the code a bit. Any questions in particular I might be able to help with?
