Ethernet controller, allowing easy connection to a network. The “NicheLite for LPC” source code, which is a variant of the full stack available from InterNiche, is available for free download from NXP’s website:
The advantage of using the NicheLite for LPC stack is that it is royalty free and it is already ported to the LPC2000 family. However embedded engineers still have to integrate the stack with their application. Integration considerations include performance and memory usage.
This application note assumes basic knowledge of TCP/IP protocols, such as IP, TCP and UDP. It is intended to complement the documentation from InterNiche, and not replace any such documentation.
