LAN to WiFi
LAN to WiFi mode allows LAN based solutions to enjoy immediate WiFi connectivity without development of any drivers or protocols. Any microcontroller with an Ethernet MAC can be used to connect to WiFi.
- WiFi enabling existing LAN based solutions
- Wired LAN Cable replacement
The microcontroller’s existing TCP/IP stack is used, and the relevant Connect One product is used as a closed solution (including drivers, etc) to connect to the 802.11 network.
LAN to WiFi mode supports both standard Ethernet RJ45 connector (requires PHY) and direct MAC connectivity to the microcontroller MAC, as can be seen below:
Note that the example above demonstrates the use of a WiFi module; large volume customers can easily build PCB level solutions with identical functionality to the module by using iChip CO2128/2144.
This mode is supported on the following Connect One products:
This mode may be used over the following iChip interfaces:
