Spinneret Web Server

The Spinneret Web Server is a small, but feature packed development platform

The Parallax Propeller microcontroller, teamed with the WIZnet W5100 Ethernet controller, provide an ideal chipset for low-cost, low-power embedded Ethernet applications. The Propeller microcontroller's multicore architecture and the W5100's hardware Ethernet stack allow a new level of parallelism and data throughput for robust and reliable embedded network applications.

The Spinneret Web Server may be small—at less than 1½ by 4 inches—but it is a feature packed development platform. The built-in MicroSD card socket and real-time clock allow ample room for time-stamped file and data storage, and the oversized EEPROM can store non-volatile data for use when there is no MicroSD card present.
