WiFi-IT! + Sensor = Intelligent Control

   
TECHNOLOGY FOR BUILDING INTELLIGENT SENSOR NETWORKS TO PROVIDE SMART SOLUTIONS FOR TODAY’S PROBLEMS
   
Designing sensor-based wireless applications has moved beyond simple UART interfaces. More and more applications require low power, real-time, intelligent, sensor-based monitoring and control. The WiFi-IT! is a full function 802.11 b/g/n compatible module based on the GainSpan® SoC, giving you high-performance computing and standard Wi-Fi communication, in one package - at a low cost! With its many industry standard interfaces, low-power operation and the WiFi-Basic programming environment you can have your prototype design up and running in hours, instead of months!
    

Low Cost, Low Power, High Performance

    
USE WIFI-BASIC TO WRITE YOUR APPLICATION AND REMOVE THE COST OF AN EXTERNAL MICROCONTROLLER!
    

No External Microprocessor Required

   
Bringing Wi-Fi network access to everyday devices just got easier and cheaper! The WiFi-IT offers a complete, self-contained Wi-Fi networking solution. It provides the processing power of two 32-bit ARM Processors, internal TCP/IP stack, power management unit and full compliment of industry standard interfaces for connecting sensors and control elements.
   

WiFi-IT! Evaluation and Development Kit

    
The WiFi-IT! EDK provides a complete hardware and software platform for evaluating and developing Wi-Fi applications.
    
  • 1 Base Board with onboard LED Signal Monitoring
  • 2 WiFi-IT! 802.11b Wireless Modules
  • WiFi-Basic Development Environment
  • Pre-configured Wi-Fi Access Point
  • Online Support Package
  • Cables and Power Supply
  • Quick Start Guide
     

Put your design on the fast-track!

    
Developing in WiFi-Basic is fast and easy! The low-level operation of Wi-Fi communication has been abstracted into simple high-level functions. The fully Integrated Development Environment (IDE) features a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that generates your initialization code automatically, a syntax highlighting editor, the language compiler, a project manager and a debugger that supports wired or wireless operation. WiFi-Basic is a structured language with an IDE that promotes an iterative development cycle through quick compilations and downloads.
    

Need to Add Wi-Fi Capability to an Existing Design?

     
The WiFi-IT! is available with a simple to use Serial-to-Wi-Fi application allowing an 8/16/32-bit microcontroller to access a Wi-Fi network via UART or SPI interface. The TCP/IP stack and services reside on the WiFi-IT!, completely offloading the host processor. In addition to providing the IP to Wi-Fi functionality, the WiFi-IT! supports WEP/WPA/ WPA2 security and adhoc networks as well as Wi-Fi Protected Setup for easy provisioning.
    
Using a module is an ideal solution for organizations with limited or no Wi-Fi expertise.  It removes the burden of testing and certification and dramatically reduces RF design time, all of which accelerate time to market. With the WiFiIT!’s ultra low power consumption, adding Wi-Fi communication won’t break the design power budget!
