Web 51 Applications

Project files  web51_manual.html  FAQ
There are many possible applications for the Web51 project. Web51 can be used for almost any device connected to a TCP/IP network, as long as high bandwidth (over about 50 - 100 kbit/sec) is not required. The Project description contains a short introduction to the entire system and lists its advantages and disadvantages. Here are some examples of Web51 applications.

Possible applications of Web51

Web51 block schematic

Basic capabilities of Web51 are demonstrated on an example that simply converts serial line communication to TCP/IP based communication and vice versa. In practice, Web51 is connected to a network, and any computer on the same network can communicate over Web51's serial line using a telnet application. Web51 makes communicating over the network similar to using Hyperterminal to talk to a PC's local serial port.

Limitations of the basic version of Web51

The Project description implies several limitations of the possible applications, mainly in hardware.

Examples of finished applications

WWW server

TELNET server

Telnet supports both passive and active connection (can be disabled). Unlike the WWW server, it fully supports retransmission of lost or corrupted packets. However, if the memory runs out while waiting for acknowledgements, communication slows down. Connection is automatically closed approximately 50 seconds from the last received acknowledgement.

Web51 contains one TCP stack for each port. It is possible to have two connections open at the same time, one on each port.


TEA Encryption

After reading Project description, you can surely think of more applications of Web51.
