The Connect-io-n™ module family are a complete embedded Wi-Fi® device with an integrated MAC, baseband processor, RF transceiver and power amplifier. Based on the Redpine’s RS9110 MAC/baseband processor, the module provides all the WLAN protocol, configuration functionality, TCP/IP stack and supplicant in a embedded firmware to make it fully self contained serial to wireless solution for ultra low power WLAN applications. It conforms to the 802.11n standard in single-stream mode and includes an embedded processor with UART and SPI as host interfaces.
The Connect-io-n™ module Family is suitable to provide standard compliant wireless connectivity to devices such as Industrial Equipment, Medical Electronic Systems, POS equipment, Sensor Networks, Smart Meters and IoT/M2M communications. The key advantage is that no WLAN, configuration or networking stack is required to run on host processor. The host processor can completely be utilized for developing application software.
The Connection family module variants are available in 2.4 GHz or dual mode supporting both 2.4 and 5 GHz. The module variants also support integrated antenna.
