W5100S-EVB-Pico

Overview

W5100S-EVB-Pico is a microcontroller evaluation board based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040 and fully hardwired TCP/IP controller W5100S – and basically works the same as Raspberry Pi Pico board but with additional Ethernet via W5100S.

W5100S-EVB-Pico_PINOUT

W5100S-EVB-Pico pinout is directly connected to the GPIO of RP2040 as shown in the picture above. It has the same pinout as the Raspberry Pi Pico board. However, GPIO16, GPIO17, GPIO18, GPIO19, GPIO20, GPIO21 are connected to W5100S inside the board. These pins enable SPI communication with W5100S to use Ethernet function. If you are using the Ethernet function, these pins cannot be used for any other purpose.

The RP2040 GPIO used inside W5100S-EVB-Pico is as follows.

I/OPin NameDescription
IGPIO16Connected to MISO on W5100S
OGPIO17Connected to CSn on W5100S
OGPIO18Connected to SCLK on W5100S
OGPIO19Connected to MOSI on W5100S
OGPIO20Connected to RSTn on W5100S
IGPIO21Connected to INTn on W5100S
IGPIO24VBUS sense - high if VBUS is present, else low
OGPIO25Connected to user LED
IGPIO29Used in ADC mode (ADC3) to measure VSYS/3

Apart from GPIO and ground pins, there are 7 other pins on the main 40-pin interface:

Pin No.Pin NameDescription
PIN40VBUSMicro-USB input voltage, connected to micro-USB port pin 1. Nominally 5V.
PIN39VSYSMain system input voltage, which can vary in the allowed range 4.3V to 5.5V, and is used by the on-board LDO to generate the 3.3V .
PIN373V3_ENConnects to the on-board LDO enable pin. To disable the 3.3V (which also de-powers the RP2040 and W5100S), short this pin low.
PIN363V3Main 3.3V supply to RP2040 and W5100S, generated by the on-board LDO.
PIN35ADC_VREFADC power supply (and reference) voltage, and is generated on W5100S-EVB-Pico by filtering the 3.3V supply.
PIN33AGNDGround reference for GPIO26-29.
PIN30RUNRP2040 enable pin, To reset RP2040, short this pin low.
