Kit Overview


The PICDEM.net2 Development Board (DM163024DM163024) is an Internet/Ethernet development board supporting both the popular ENC28J60ENC28J60 Ethernet Controller and the single-chip Ethernet microcontroller family, the PIC18F97J60PIC18F97J60. With this board, using Microchip’s free TCP/IP stack, a web server can be developed showcasing the capability to remote monitor and control embedded applications over the Internet.


The PICDEM.net 2 Development Board was created to allow developers to examine Microchip’s latest available technology in embedded Ethernet and Internet solutions. Using the free Microchip TCP/IP Stack source code, developers can experiment with the preprogrammed Microchip TCP/IP Demo Application and learn how to integrate connectivity into their applications.


The PIC18F97J60PIC18F97J60 family offer five different oscillator options, allowing users a range of choices in developing application hardware. These options include:


  • Two Crystal modes, using crystals or ceramic resonators.
  • Two External Clock modes, offering the option of a divide-by-4 clock output.
  • A Phase Lock Loop (PLL) frequency multiplier, available to the external oscillator modes, which allows clock speeds of up to 41.667 MHz.
  • An internal RC oscillator with a fixed 31 kHz output which provides an extremely low-power


Key Applications: LED Lighting Solutions, Embedded Ethernet and Internet solutions.
