K, Theo, Andrew, etc., I've looked at several of the STM32 projects supporting ethernet, and have a few questions.
First, which project would you guys recommend as a starting point for RocketTracks (RTx)? I'll need to both communicate between STM32-based modules and at least support future communication with a laptop. My first step is the get two dev boards talking over enet. I'm assuming UDP only unless someone talks me out of it. It seems the projects all use an FTDI serial interface rather than USB for shell support. I intend to use the shell for development only- and I've used FTDI chips (designed them into hardware) but never an FTDI cable straight to a UART- is this the way to go or should we just use the USB peripheral like I planned? Andrew, take note: Ethernet switches- on-board or off-the-shelf? I expect we will need to connect up to 3 devices on the RTx net, the RTx controller we'll be designing, the Sightline SLA-1500, and a laptop. I like that buying a switch (a PoE in particular) is easy, and given our timeline and loss of a team member my preferred method, but it's something I'd like input on. If anyone wants to refer to it, there are block diagrams, etc. here: https://github.com/psas/rocket-tracks/tree/master/Documentation Rob
