IoT module by Wiznet based on RP2040 and W6100 with Ethernet interface 

Internet connectivity specialist Wiznet has launched a compact development platform with Ethernet connectivity, W6100-EVB-Pico, based on the popular ARM MCU RP2040.

It is a very attractive ready2use solution suitable for various Internet of Things projects, mobile and wearable devices with requirements for low energy consumption, minimal costs, and a short period needed for start of production (SOP).  

Pavel Kováč, product specialist from SOS electronic, says: “The IoT module Wiznet W6100-EVB-Pico is a combination of the very popular MCU RP2040 and a fully integrated HW TCP/IP controller of the latest generation. It basically works the same way as the Raspberry Pi Pico development board, but with additional Ethernet using the Wiznet W6100 control chip. It is very cost-effective and mainly, a ready-made solution for embedded IoT devices. 

SOS electronic article, W6100 is ready for IPv6, provides more detailed information about the Wiznet W6100 HW chip with an Internet driver, which solves the issue of the lack of IP addresses in IPv4.
