Serial to Ethernet converter (ser2enet)

Compatibility Eagle 50E, 100

The Serial to Ethernet Converter provides a means of accessing the UART on a Stellaris device via a network connection. The UART can be connected to the UART on a non-networked device, providing the ability to access the device via a network. This can be useful to overcome the cable length limitations of a UART connection (in fact, the cable can become thousands of miles long) and to provide networking capability to existing devices without modifying the device's operation.

The converter can be configured to use a static IP configuration or to use DHCP to obtain its IP configuration. Since the converter is providing a telnet server, the effective use of DHCP requires a reservation in the DHCP server so that the converter gets the same IP address each time it is connected to the network.
