remote Internet host to access the ZG2100M Web server
application at port 80. In fact, you can assign your own
“garage-brewed application” a port number and allow
Internet access to it using TCP and/or UDP.
Speaking of Web Applications
The ZG2100M segment of the TCP/IP stack contains a
precompiled Web application that I think you would be
interested in. If you are looking to build interactive Web
pages, upload files, or send mail using your ZG2100M, the
tutorial pages in the ZG2100M demo area will get you
I loaded the ZG2100M Web page demo onto our
Explorer 16 Development Board/ZG2100M platform and
dialed up the resultant HTTP server at 192.168.1.101. The
index.htm page you see in Screenshot 5 welcomed me.
The upper right corner of Screenshot 5 is an interactive
pane that displays the status of the Explorer 16’s
pushbuttons and LED array. You can also interact with the
development board’s LEDs and pushbuttons from this area
using your mouse.
Think about it. Now your grazing piece of iron can
send you an email detailing what he or she has
encountered or whining about having low battery voltage.
You might want to use a ZG2100M to create a roving
interactive Web server. The ZG2100M hardware is easy to
interface and most of the firmware and magic RF stuff has
already been taken care of. All you need to use your noggin
for is to engineer the overall application from the ZeroG
hardware and firmware building blocks at your disposal.
The point is that you now have access to what I call
Star Trek technology. How many “wired” anythings can you
remember seeing on Star Trek? Utilizing the ZeroG wireless
technology we’ve just discussed and a simple PIC, you can
become a modern-day Scotty. SV
