Murum Lux Ethernet: IPLogika Module

IPLogika's P401 Ethernet Module
IPLogika’s P401 Ethernet Module

You may have already seen previous posts about the Murum Lux (Wall of Light) including a post about the human interface portion. Today’s post refers to the Ethernet portion that Josh wrote about. Using two P-401 Ethernet modules by a Spanish company named IPLogika (one on-board his “e-field” box, and one on-board the Panel/Display board) he created a network by which he communicated the human interface gestures from the gesture panel on the E-field box to the Display.

P.S. Keep an eye out for his tip on using one module to aid in debugging!

chipKIT Murum Lux Wall of Light: LEDs, Human Interface, and Ethernet


This weekend at the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo, California, the chipKIT Platform will be showcased at the Microchip booth (located in the Expo Hall in Zone 2, booth 2510, east most side of the hall).

One of the items you’ll see at the booth is the Murum Lux (or Wall of Light), which uses PIC32 32-bit microcontrollers via the chipKIT Wi-FIRE and the chipKIT Fubarino Mini to create what Josh Ian Linsday calls “Murum Lux” (Latin for “Wall of Light”). Using a Sabrewing Development Board from Microchip for gesture control, he created an e-field box, then using IPLogika’s Ethernet modules, he connected the e-field box to the RGB LED matrix panel to control the content displaying on the “wall of light.” This stuff is way too cool to reduce down to a small paragraph!

You’ll have to check out Josh’s blog post to see how he put this all together!
