Lowest Cost, Highest Flexibility WiFi Client or Access Point
Nano WiReach™ G2 is a secure embedded Wireless LAN module that easily connects embedded devices to 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN, It includes the iChip™ CO2144 IP Communication Controller™ chip and a Broadcom BM43362 WiFi baseband. It is packaged in a 33.76X18mm RoHS-compliant low profile module with 30 PIN Board to Board connector and UFL connector for external antenna.
Nano WiReach G2 N1 makes adding Internet connectivity to embedded devices a breeze. It does not require any kind of WiFi driver development on the host CPU, and its multiple interfaces (UART, SPI, RMII and USB 1.1) minimize the need to redesign the host device hardware. Connect One’s high-level AT+i™ API eliminates the need to add WiFi, LAN or cellular drivers, security and networking protocols or communication tasks to the host application. Nano WiReach G2 N1 supports the SSL3/TLS1 protocol for secure sockets, HTTPS and FTPS, WPA/WPA2 WiFi encryption. Nano WiReach G2 N1 firmware and configuration parameters are stored in on-board flash memory. The module is power-efficient: the core operates at 1.2V, while I/Os operate at 3.3V. Power Save mode further reduces power consumption.
Nano WiReach G2 N1 supports several modes of operation:
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 module’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.
Nano WiReach G2 N1 includes RMII, USB, SPI and fast UART interfaces for easy integration into existing or new designs.
Nano WiReach G2 N1 offers a highly advanced level of Internet security. It includes 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.
