How to Add W5500 Ethernet to Raspberry Pi Pico (Python)

WIZnet’s WIZ850io was used to supplement RP2040, which is dual-core ARM Cortex-M0 without Ethernet.


This guide was developed using CircuitPython.

Setting up a network camera using W5300

This SDK used W5300 to build a network camera.

Since the interface of W5300 is address/data bus, STM32F417Zx (144 pin package) from STM32F4 series was selected as the MCU; STM32F417Zx provides data bus along with camera interface.

How to Add W5500 Ethernet to ESP32

This SDK was created to test the various Ethernet-basic examples from Espressif by connecting WIZ850io with ESP-DevKitC module.

Getting Started with ioLibrary

At WIZnet we value community contribution.
Guides and samples shown above were selected to demonstrate how ioLibrary can be added to various projects.

ioLibrary Driver

The ioLibrary means “Internet Offload Library” for WIZnet chip. It includes drivers and application protocols. The driver (ioLibrary) can be used for the application design of WIZnet TCP/IP chips as W5500, W5300, W5200, W5100 W5100S.

This driver provides the Berkeley Socket type APIs.

  • Directory Structure
iolibrary structure
  • Ethernet : SOCKET APIs like BSD & WIZCHIP(W5500 / W5300 / W5200 / W5100 / W5100S) Driver
  • Internet :
    • DHCP client
    • DNS client
    • FTP client
    • FTP server
    • SNMP agent/trap
    • SNTP client
    • TFTP client
    • HTTP server
    • MQTT Client
    • Others will be added.
