Microchip Certified Training - An Introduction to Ethernet and TCP/IP for Industrial and Embedded Systems — A 5 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


Ethernet controller chips are relatively cheap and widely available. This makes it possible to design embedded systems with ethernet communications capabilities. Such systems can be connected together via local area networks and accessed remotely via wide area networks.

Improved fault tolerance in Industrial Ethernet Networks can be obtained by using ethernet switches with redundant connections and special failure recovery protocols. To be proficient in using TCP/IP and Ethernet technology a good understanding of ethernet technology, as well as a thorough understanding of the various protocols that make up the TCP/IP family of protocols is essential.

This course is a practical course - in the sense that students will be shown how to configure and manage IP networks and how to use a protocol analyzer - both to better understand how the protocols work, and for trouble-shooting purposes.


After attending this course you will be able to:


Layered approaches to networking - the IDS-OSI 7-layer model

Physical and logical network topologies

Media access control protocols (CSMA/CD, CSMA/CA, token ring, token bus ...)

Link layer protocols - 802.2



Network layer IP

Transport layer - UDP, TCP

Industrial Ethernet Protocols and Standards

QoS approaches

Application layer protocols and services

Suitable For

This course is for engineers who have relatively little experience of networking, or who need to update their knowledge.
