In this article, we are going to explore the w5500 module with our Raspberry Pi Pico, w and the other rp2040 boards. w5500 is a quite powerful device that allows an Ethernet wired connection.
The W5500 chip is a Hardwired TCP/IP embedded Ethernet controller that provides easier Internet connection to embedded systems. W5500 enables users to have the Internet connectivity in their applications just by using the single chip in which TCP/IP stack, 10/100 Ethernet MAC and PHY embedded.
WIZnet‘s Hardwired TCP/IP is the market-proven technology that
upports TCP, UDP, IPv4, ICMP, ARP, IGMP, and PPPoE protocols. W5500 embeds the 32Kbyte internal memory buffer for the Ethernet packet processing.
Many people ask me for some examples of wired connections; in my mind, the first thing I thought of is the w5500 device, one of the most famous and powerful. We’ll start to learn how to manage plain and SSL requests.
When I started using the STM32 I discovered a world. they are powerful with a lot of features, but they have lacks a network connection. This can be resolved with a w5500 module, a quite powerful device that allows a wired connection.
