Wiznet W6100 [was High(er) performing ethernet (W5300 or other)]
Hey guys, I am going into my winter phase of electronics projects. I want to do an E1.31 (DMX over ethernet) to WS2811 controller board. For my application, it will require high performance for a microcontroller. (> 10Mbps input) I am looking at developing around the P2 and the Wiznet 5300. All parallel I/O and parallel addressing seems to be the way to get serious throughput. Shouldn't be a problem with the number of available pins on the P2.
Just looking for other's opinions of, if I should look at other ethernet (must be wired) options. I know the Wiznet W5300 is a bit long in the tooth, but I don't know of any plans for it to be replaced. What else should I look at as an alternative?
As always, thanks in advance!
