Highlights

Like the EM120, but with 10/100Base-T Ethernet.

Member of x20x family, mates with the RJ203 jack/magnetics. Combined footprint only 31x19mm.

2.54mm (0.1") pin pitch – ideal for prototyping. New to Tibbo BASIC/C? Start your quest with this module!

Stacked design minimizes footprint, device width close to that of a standard RJ45 jack.

Member of x20x family, mates with the RJ203 jack/magnetics. Combined footprint only 34.5x19mm.
