Arduino enthusiasts may be interested to know that a new Arduino Ethernet Shield has arrived at the Adafruit online store supporting the Arduino W5500 Chipset and is now available to purchase priced at $32.50.
The Arduino Ethernet Shield is equipped with a microSD card holder, accepts a working voltage of 5V and is supported by either the Arduino Uno or Mega development boards.
Adafruit explains a little more about the new Arduino Ethernet Shield :
The W5500 Ethernet Shield for Arduino from Seeed Studio is a great way to set up your projects with internet connectivity with just a single chip. Similar to the Arduino Ethernet Shield, but with a newer chipset, this ethernet shield supports both TCP and IP Protocols in TCP, UDB, ICMP, IPv4, ARP, IGMP, and PPoE format. The RJ45 ethernet port is also low enough so you can stack nothera shield on top of it
