The design contest simply requires the use of WIZnet’s new chip (the W7100) as part of your embedded project. The W7100 is an Internet MCU integrating a Hardwired TCP/IP core with an 8051 processor. The resulting integration is known as ‘iMCU.’
The W7100 can make an easy-to-implement platform for applications that need a network connection. In addition, the 64-KB SRAM and 32-KB internal buffer make even high-performance Internet applications possible. WIZnet’s hardwired TCP/IP stack, which includes Ethernet MAC and PHY, has positioned a market-proven chip (the W5100) in industrial and multimedia application market for a number of years. By combining the latest hardwired TCP/IP chip with the benefits of the W5100 and 8051 MCU core, the new W7100 provides a one-chip solution for all your embedded Internet projects.

The W7100 can guarantee cost and time efficiency as well as the possibility of ‘offloaded’ Internet capability to existing embedded designs. Moreover, without any knowledge about TCP/IP protocol, W7100 users can design various applications with WIZnet providing simple SOCKET programs.
