Personal Mini Webserver (1)
An embedded PC in a DIL package forms the core of the Mini Webserver. In this first instalment, we introduce an evaluation board for this controller and show how to use it. Following this, you will be in a position to control any equipment that you wish via the Internet or an Ethernet network.Sometimes, a passionate electronic hobbyist can get the impression that modern-day electronics can no longer be implemented in DIY form. The microcontroller has too many pins, loading software into the DSP requires professional programming equipment with a matching price, the passive components are so small that you need a loupe to see what you’re working with and soldering them with a normal iron is hopeless, and finally, not everyone is equipped to make multilayer circuit boards. However, things do not have to always be this difficult, and the Mini Webserver presented here is proof of this. This small, easily built circuit, which allows you to communicate with a piece of electronic equipment remotely (as far as the Internet reaches…), is the very latest thing and (not yet) a mass-produced industrial product that you can purchase for a few Euros in your neighbourhood telephone boutique or electronics shop.
