PHPoC Shield for Arduino connects Arduino to Ethernet or Wi-Fi networks. Attach this board over Arduino and connect a LAN cable. After a simple network setup, Arduino is connected to the Internet. To use a wireless LAN, connect to a WIFI dongle.
The network function of this shield is based on the TCP/IP stack using PHPoC interpreter. The shield can be easily accessed by Phpoc Library. Phpoc Library is very similar to the usage of Arduino Ethernet library or WIFI library. Therefore, source codes using existing Ethernet library or WIFI library can be used immediately after modifying just few lines. It will surely reduce trials and errors of users with the previous experience using Ethernet shield or WIFI shield.
Furthermore, Phpoc Library has a wider range of applications since it supports a variety of API(e.g. SSL, SSH, TELNET, Web socket, ESMTP and so on) absent from the existing libraries.
