STM32F4 native Ethernet port - Is it in the works?

Is ST planning to release an Ethernet-enabled Nucleo or port the Ethernet library to the Discovery F4 (or similar)?

I know nobody is going to divulge plans, but it would be really nice. For now we have Freescale (K64) and NXP (LPC 1769 and LPC4088) devices that have useable Ethernet connections.

But the ST devices - especially the 407/417 and 429/439 are the top Cortex M4 devices at the moment. It would be be the cream on the pie for ST to support these on mbed with native Ethernet (as opposed to WizNet on the lower end parts that Nucleo covers now).

Ethernetinterface seems to be able to work for STM32F4, if i read the headers correctly. See: https://developer.mbed.org/users/mbed_official/code/EthernetInterface/file/4d7bff17a592/EthernetInterface.h

Can anyone confirm?

+1 this!! The stm32 chips are cheaper and faster than the lpc or k64 parts but ethernet is a joke on them..

There is a new Ethernet mbed board from Seeed (Arch Max), using the STM32F407. I don't think they have ported the mbed Ethernet library yet, but hopefully they will soon do it. For details on this board, see: https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/Seeed-Arch-Max/

Thanks this looks great!! Hope they really polish up the Ethernet Stack on it!

Was the porting completed? Is it available on some repo?

Ethernet is the best part of networking.In STM32F4 is the main networking part which includes Ethernet.Ethernet help to strong connectivity for each other.If you want to know more information about it then follow the site. https://ie10support.com/
