Bluegiga Launches Embedded Wi-Fi Modules for Professional Applications
May 24, 2012
Espoo, Findland (May, 2012) -- Bluegiga Technologies today announced the availability of its line of embedded Wi-Fi modules: Bluegiga WF111 and Bluegiga WF121. The new modules are ideal for embedded applications requiring small, reliable, long range Wi-Fi connectivity in an easy to integrate surface mount package. Both modules utilize Cambridge Silicon Radio’s UniFi CSR6031 chipset which has excellent RF performance, low power consumption, and compact size.
“Bluegiga is very excited to expand our product portfolio to include our two new Wi-Fi modules. Bluegiga has leveraged its extensive experience in developing robust, easy to integrate Bluetooth modules to create what we think will be a compelling alternative to existing Wi-Fi solutions on the market today.” says Tom Nordman, Bluegiga’s VP of Sales and Marketing.
Bluegiga WF121 module is a stand-alone Wi-Fi module, providing a fully integrated 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n radio and IP stack in a 15.4mm x 26.2mm footprint. It is designed for embedded applications requiring simple, low-cost/low-power wireless TCP/IP connectivity with flexible interfaces for connecting a wide variety of peripherals. The Bluegiga WF121 module also comes with Bluegiga Wi-Fi® software, a powerful, yet easy-to-use command interface to manage connectivity functions such as Access Point discovery, association and connection establishment. The WF121 also supports Bluegiga's BGScriptTM programming language enabling developers to embed applications directly onboard the WF121 in matter of hours.
Bluegiga WF111 module is a fully integrated 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n module, providing a low cost, small size Wi-Fi solution for devices that run a Linux operating system on ARM or x86 processors with an SDIO interface. WF111 offers all of the benefits of an optimized wireless module – small size, great performance, and excellent range in cost effective surface mount package.
“In designing our WF111 and WF121 we have strived to create very small, long range Wi-Fi modules that provide real benefits for our customers including superior radio performance, reduced design risk, and shortened time-to-market. Innovative software features have always been a hallmark of Bluegiga modules and we believe our BGScriptTM and Wi-Fi software will enable OEMs to easily create winning Wi-Fi designs.” adds Mikko Savolainen, Bluegiga’s VP of Product Management.
