The matchbook-sized WiPort takes the complexity out of RF design and embedded Ethernet networking and WiPort enables engineers to focus on their core competency of designing products. It minimizes engineering risk, reduces cost and shortens development time. Just apply power and UART output, and the product is wireless and network-ready. 
Powered by a Lantronix DSTni™ Ethernet processor SoC that includes a 10Base-T/100Base-TX MAC/PHY and 256 KB of on-chip SRAM, WiPort also includes a complete 802.11 b/g radio and 2MB of Flash memory for web page storage and system upgrades. WiPort is a dedicated co-processor module that optimizes network activity, permitting the device’s host microprocessor to function at maximum efficiency. WiPort connects through its coaxial “pigtail” to an external panel-mounted antenna for rapid electromechanical integration. WiPort works with serial or Ethernet interface devices. SPI, I2C, USB or CAN connectivity can be enabled as a future option.
With IEEE 802.11i-PSK or WPA (PSK, TKIP) encryption WiPort offers heightened security. WiPort also supports 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standards (Rjindael) encryption for true end-to-end (wired to wireless to wired) secure data transfer.
Eliminating the need to negotiate the intricacies of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or Internet Protocol (IP), WiPort incorporates:
  • Robust Real Time Operating System (RTOS)
  • Full-featured network protocol stack
  • Proven, ready-to-use serial-to-wireless application
  • Built-in web server for device communication and configuration via a standard browser
The Windows-based DeviceInstaller™ makes configuring one or more WiPorts in a subnet quick and easy.
  • Install and configure WiPort and load firmware
  • Assign IP & other network specific addresses
  • Set wireless parameters
  • Load custom web pages and view specific device data
  • Enable web-based configuration of the device
  • Ping or query the attached device(s) over the network
  • Allow Telnet communication with the device(s)
WiPort is certified by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This allows you to leverage the Lantronix WiPort FCC license grant to your label and bypass 802.11 regulatory testing. This accelerates time-to-market and reduces development and testing costs. WiPort is also pre-tested for European telecommunications regulations.
With a separate Ethernet port, WiPort offers the unique ability to transparently bridge existing Ethernet-ready devices to a wireless network.
With its Scan command, WiPort enables the ability to report MAC address, RSSI and SSID which are extremely useful during site survey work. The Network Status command additionally reports channel, infra/adhoc, security type, authentication, negotiated encryption types for the current association.
