[ProgSoc] back to the spudserver
I don't remember reading this from anybody else...
In the October edition of Electronics Australia magazine, some guy who
didn't see why the spud powered web server should be left in the realm of
hoax has built one. He "cheated" a bit - it is built using a single PIC
microcontroller, running at about 1.5 volts and with a power drain
measured in microwatts (i think it was about 20uW). It handles about 0.2
requests per second, with 2 pages in its ram, including dynamic data about
the server. At the time that the article was written, the uptime was a
little over 4 days.
The real power hog, the serial link to the world, was separately powered.
There was also an attempt at the worlds smallest webserver - again using a
PIC, half the circuit board was occupied by the DB9 serial
connector. Unfortunately, www.electronicsaustralia.com.au doesn't have the
articles online, just an index.
