The GainSpan GS2100MIE-EVB3-S2W
Evaluation Boards (EVB) are flexible hardware platforms to evaluate the capabilities of GainSpan’s ultra-low power Wi-Fi SoC GS2000
and enable development of hosted or hostless application software. They provide a quick, easy, and cost-effective platform for customers to add Wi-Fi capabilities to their products with minor impact on the host microcontroller firmware. Users can use the Serial-to-WiFi software packaged with the EVB to build a hosted application or program the board with custom binaries built using the GainSpan SDK Builder or GS2000 SDK
The EVBs bring out all the pins of the GS2100M modules, and exposes features such as high-speed SPI and SDIO interfaces that support high throughput audio and video streaming applications, a high resolution 16-bit ADC for energy measurements in smart energy applications, temperature and light sensors for quick development of sensor applications, I2C interface for sensors and I2S interface to external DAC for audio applications. The EVB is part of the GS2000 SDK and supports the JTAG interface for software development. It also provides a daughter card connector that customers can use to connect to their host processor board or custom application boards.
The EVB works in conjunction with the Serial-to-WiFi software, but it can be used for development of hostless applications as well, built using the GS2000 SDK or the SDK Builder.
The GS2100MIE-EVB3-S2W provides all the hardware and software necessary to quickly set up a serial (UART or SPI) based link to a PC or external microcontroller. It has various jumpers, switches, push buttons and LEDs that provide support for evaluating different features and configurations based on the firmware loaded.
