xPico WiFi is a dream come true for producers and customers
Lantronix xPico WiFi module enables to directly configure a target device via a software access point - without a need to access a client´s network.
Lantronix xPico WiFi is a new module with a dual serial port (+USB 2.0, + SPI) enabling to connect target devices into WiFi network with several features making it user very friendly. xPico WiFi is of the same miniature size like its near familiar - xPico (ethernet), which was introduced to you in the article „Do you need a chip-sized Ethernet ?" and it also has the same pinout, offering an unusual flexibility at the device designing.
As we´re already used to at products from company Lantronix - for a real usage it isn´t necessary to write a single row of code neither load any drivers. Perhaps the biggest advantage of the new module is, that it provides a simultaneous software AP (Access Point) with a DHCP server and Client mode, what means, that besides operation in WiFi as a “usual” client, it also enables a direct access - communication with other WiFi device, e,g, tablet or smartphone. It provides a huge advantage to producers regarding configuration or servicing of devices in a form of a direct access ONLY to a given device, without a need to access into a customer´s network. Safety is cared by 256 bit AES encryption and a reliable operation is guaranteed in a wide industrial operating range -40...+85°C. The module is supplied by 3.3V and serial ports are 5V tolerant. Thanks to a low power consumption can be the xPico WiFi operated even from batteries (6uA standby).
Detailed information will provide you the xPico WiFi brochure, xPico WiFi user guide and xPico integration guide. For development support there´s also available the xPico WiFi development kit.
