Ethernet of Everything

Quick and Easy Networking of "Things"


Whether called Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial IoT, or Industrial Ethernet – any “thing” can now be connected and controlled —garage openers, home appliances, HVAC systems, lighting and an endless array of other common products. This places increased importance on creating products that are easily connected and provide intelligent control within a simplified development environment.

We Enable Things

Networked things range in complexity from the simplest environmental sensor to processing intensive devices. Microchip’s 8-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers enable these applications with lightweight communications stacks and an extensive mix of smart peripherals that operate independently of the core — requiring little to no CPU intervention. Paired with Microchip’s industry-leading eXtreme Low Power (XLP) and picoPower® technologies, PIC and AVR MCUs enable innovation in the Ethernet of Everything.

With development support for nearly anything, Microchip’s Ethernet solutions build upon an established networking foundation, providing improved system performance, reduced latency, ease of installation and scaling, as well as the option to incorporate Power over Ethernet (PoE) for single line power and communications. Hybrid networks incorporate multiple networking technologies including wired, wireless, server management, and cloud connectivity.
