This allows you to add internet capability to your project. It can also be used to drive relays as only a few pins are used for the ENC28J60.
The ENC28J60 Ethernet Module utilizes the new Microchip ENC28J60 Stand-Alone Ethernet Controller IC featuring a host of features to handle most of the network protocol requirements. The board connects directly to Arduino and to most microcontrollers with a standard SPI interface with a transfer speed of up to 20MHz.
The ENC28J60 contains all the necessary hardware to implement an Ethernet interface including the isolation transformer and LINK/STATUS LEDs. SPI interface makes this one of the easiest 10Base-T ICs yet! 3.3V with 8KB buffer.
The ENC28J60 is fully compatible with KSduino. ENC28J60 performance is not inferior to the standard Arduinos w5100 Ethernet Shield. One of the biggest factors of using ENC28J60 device is its low cost.
Where to buy ENC28J60:
Use online shopping to by it
etc, there are so many offers. Or look it in your local shops.
Hardware connection ENC28J60 to Arduino:
ENC28J60 has 10 pins, but it used only 7 pins to connect ENC28J60 to Arduino. The ENC28J60 use standard SPI interface so you can connect 5 pins to the Arduinos ICSP connector one pin to the 3.3V and another one to the pin 8 (this is EtherCard library default ChipSelect (CS) pin).

How to connect ENC28J60 to KSduino:
To connect this device to KSduino we have used KSduino Library for Arduino with ENC28J60 and EtherCart Ethernet library. The EtherCat Ethernet library supports all the functions of ENC28J60 Ethernet Shield and has its own very interesting examples. The KSduino library uses EtherCart UDP stack and allows uses of all functions of KSduino and EtherCart libraries.
