Digi-Key Corporation recently announced it has stock on Micrel's Zippy2 Ethernet Combo Board, the KSZ8851SNL-BBE-EVAL evaluation board for the KSZ8851SNL Ethernet controller. Jointly developed by Micrel and TinCanTools, the Zippy2 Ethernet Combo Board is a low-cost Ethernet expansion board for the BeagleBoard. The Zippy2 provides a standard 10/100BaseT (10/100Mbit) Ethernet interface and uses Micrel's KSZ8851SNL SPI-to-Ethernet controller. It also provides a second SD/MMC interface that supports 3.3V and 1.8V SD memory cards as well as a second RS232 serial interface with two serial connectors. Support for the Zippy2 is also available on Digi-Key's website where users can access information such as schematics, gerbers, and a BOM specifically for the Zippy2. On the Zippy2 support website, users also have access to software links for the Linux driver, as well as links for additional support.
