eS-WiFi Embedded Module for M2M and IoT – 802.11 b/g/n

 

Press Release

BILLERICA, MA, Nov. 29, 2011
/PRNewswire/ —

Inventek
Systems Announces the Ez-WiFi Module Family Targeting Embedded Wi-Fi 802.11
b/g/n Applications Utilizing Broadcom’s Leading-Edge WiFi Technology.

Inventek (www.inventeksys.com)
has released three embedded Ez-WiFi modules based on the Broadcom’s (NASDAQ:
BRCM) (www.Broadcom.com) Wireless Internet Connectivity Platform.  Ez-WiFi modules offer the first plug-and-play
WiFi solution that enables the embedded sector to develop integrated hardware
and software WiFi solutions using Broadcom’s 802.11 components.

These
modules will provide manufacturers the ability to easily integrate wireless
connectivity into many MCU based designs in the consumer, industrial and
medical product markets. Examples of the rapidly expanding embedded WiFi space
include smart appliances, building automation, smart energy control, and
cloud-based interconnectivity for healthcare and medical monitoring
applications.

The
Ez-WiFi module hardware system consists of a host processor, integrated antenna
and Broadcom WiFi device.  The module
provides SPI and UART interfaces enabling easy connection to an embedded
design. The module requires no operating system and has a completely integrated
TCP/IP stack that only requires a simple AT command set to establish
connectivity.

Inventek’s modules utilize the recently released Broadcom modular
WiFi WICED platform (www.broadcom.com/press/release.php?id=s622654) and adds several key
features such as configuration using standard AT commands, FCC certification,
and a small 15mmx28mm or 15mmx30mm form factor.
These
features minimize or eliminate the development time, testing routines and
certification requirements and make them ideal for a wide range of embedded
wireless applications.

 

Ez-WiFi
modules are offered in three configurations:
15mmx30mm module with integrated trace antenna (ISM4319-M3-L44-E),
15mmx28mm module with ceramic antenna (ISM4319-M3-L44-C) and 15mmx28mm module
with U.Fl connector for external antenna connection (ISM4319-M3-L44-U).  In addition, Inventek offers two development
boards (ISM4319-M3-E-EVB and ISM4319-M3-UC-EVB) for customer evaluation and
integration of the Ez-WiFi module into their system.

For applications that require customized
design, Inventek also provides customer specific hardware and software design
services.
