VAR is Value Added Reseller.
If you want to make your own Wiznet VAR with W7500, then WIZnet will give every technical related datum and supports for free for you.(Contact : Gunn@wiznet.io)
The below steps are our VAR making process with W7500 MCU chip.
You can make your own WIZnet VAR with free technical supports and WIZnet free datum.
The below steps show helps you can get at each stage.
One can make W7500 Open VAR, because W7500 is optimized MCU on IoT era.
One can make Serial to Ethernet or other VAR using W7500.
W7500 is optimized at Ethernet functions and have many merits like unattackable against DDOS.

If you decide what to make, then you should think about parts required and total cost.
If you make mbed-supporting VAR, then your schematic should follow the inteface between W7500 and NXP11U35 chip like WIZwiki Platform.
Then HDK(Hardware Development Kit) is completed.
WIZwiki Platform was designed with Altium tool.

After Schematic, you should do ArtWork.

After ArtWork, you can generate Gerber File using tool.(Altium or others)
If you need WIZwiki Platform Gerber files, then please contact at Wiznetian@wiznet.io.
With Gerber File, you can make PCB board.
I think you can be soldered.
If soldering the PCB and some problems, then you should debug the Hardware.
After every problems settled, then Hardware works are finished.
You should make Pin MAP.
The right picture is WIZwiki Platform PinMAP
Firmware work is also easy.
Every code is ready already.
You just copy the WIZwiki SDK and modify the pinname.h file only.
– bin file.
– test method.
For WIZwiki platform, you can reference the below URL.
If you found some problems, then settle those down.
When producing first 100 or 200 products, you can use 3rd party professional company.
If your VAR is good, then we can do the joint marketing for your VAR product.
If you make the W7500 VAR and want to do joint marketing, then please contact at Wiznetian@wiznet.io.
