This shield is perfect to connect FEZ Panda to the outer world. The "Internet of things" and physical computing has never been easier before. 

It supports:

  • Ethernet* 
  • 8 JST connectors for sensors.
  • 2 standard Servo motor connectors with separate power input option.
  • 0.22 F supper cap that feeds FEZ Domino's or FEZ Panda II's Real Time Clock when the power is off.
  • Reset button.
  • Programmable LED connected Di8.
  • 7 indication LEDs (power, Ethernet traffic, speed and  connection status).
  • Jumper to choose the VCC source (5V or 3.3V) at An3 and An2 JST connectors.
  • 5 Volt Regulator (to make it compatible with Arduino).
  • Arduino compatible Male/Female Connectors for easier stackability.

*USBizi, which is the core processor of FEZ Domino and FEZ Panda, supports the core chipset natively (WIZnet W5100) exposing a standard .NET sockets style user interface. This means that it is very easy to make your own embedded Server/Client, using TCP or UDP sockets with up to 500Kbps speed.
Also, the DNS support to query websites' IP addresses and DHCP to automatic IP address leasing are supported.

GHI also offers a WiFi-Ethernet Bridge allowing wireless networking connections.
