Redpine Signals Release Wi-Fi Module for M2M

Redpine Signals, a start-up based in San Jose, California with offices in Hyderabad, India, released a low-power Wi-Fi module for M2M markets.

The new "WiSeConnect" module implements advanced features like Wi-Fi Direct and Enterprise security required for 802.11n Wi-Fi based machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity. The new module includes an embedded processor along with Redpine's ultra low power 802.11n Wi-Fi subsystem, as well as an antenna and frequency reference to be fully contained. Apart from SDIO and SPI interfaces, the module provides Ethernet and USB interfaces for universal applicability. The module provides Wi-Fi Direct functionality – that allows other Wi-Fi Direct devices as well as standard clients to connect to it. It includes a full implementation of the SEP 2.0 software stack that enables emerging smart energy applications. In addition, it supports embedded AP functionality and in both client and access point modes, it offers WLAN enterprise security features.
Evaluation boards are available now.
