Nano WiReach™ SMT G2 is a secure serial-to-Wireless-LAN device module that can perform as a WLAN client or Access Point to connect serial devices to 802.11b/g/n Wireless LANs. It includes the iChip™ CO2144 IP Communication Controller™ chip and Broadcom BCM43362 WiFi chipset. It is packaged in RoHS-compliant ultra-slim form factor and uses an industry standard pin-out. The Nano WiReach SMT G2 can also be interfaced to a 10/100BaseT wired LAN and a USB cellular modem with some external components and glue logic.
Nano WiReach SMT G2 offers and supports large variety of features which among them:
Embedded Router – Providing routing facilities between a wired LAN subnet a WiFi subnet and a cellular WAN connection (3G router capability). Includes a DHCP server, NAT and port forwarding
Embedded Access Point – devices containing WiFi can connect to the embedded access point to control or manage processes
LAN to WiFi Bridge – allowing transparent bridging of LAN over WiFi, using direct RMII connection to existing MAC hardware. This allows any microcontroller with a built-in Ethernet MAC to be connected to WiFi, with zero development effort
Serial to WiFi Bridge – allowing transparent bridging of Serial over WiFi, using the module’s 3Mbps fast UART
PPP emulation – allowing existing (e.g. cellular modem) designs currently using PPP to interface to the cellular modem to connect transparently over WiFi with no changes to application or drivers
Full Internet Controller mode – allowing simple MCU to use the Nano WiReach SMT’s rich protocol and application capabilities to perform complex Internet operations such as E-mail, FTP, SSL, embedded web server and others. Internet controller mode can be used with any hardware interface.
Ten simultaneous TCP/UDP sockets
Two listening sockets
Webserver with two websites
SMTP and POP3 clients
POP3 SMTP client with MIME attachment
SerialNET™ mode for serial to IP bridging
Gateway between a local network on it’s LAN/WLAN interfaces and a WAN on any of it’s other interfaces
Switch between it’s WLAN interface and the Ethernet interface when acting as a WLAN access point
An Ethernet to WiFi bridge to connect an ETH client to a WiFi network (cable replacement)
Security gap between the application and the network
Nano WiReach SMT includes RMII, USB, SPI and fast UART interfaces for easy integration into existing or new designs. It offers a highly advanced level of Internet security, including the latest WiFi encryption algorithms (WPA/WPA2) and Internet SSL encryption algorithms. In addition, it serves as an inherent firewall, protecting the embedded application from attacks originating from the Internet.
