Glyn High-Tech Distribution is happy to supply its customers with the GainSpan Corporation range of low power embedded Wi-Fi solutions.
GainSpan has recently announced that all of its embedded Wi-Fi modules will now have added Limited Access Point (Limited-AP) capability, which will enable any W-Fi embedded product to serve as an instant access point for wireless devices such as smart phones, tablets and notebooks.
This embedded Limited-AP capability provides fast and simple Wi-Fi provisioning to the end user by eliminating the need for the complex configurations associated with typical access points.
With GainSpan’s Limited-AP capability, a wide variety of deeply embedded Wi-Fi enabled products such as in-home displays, thermostats, appliances, sensors and even security locks can act as an access point and be easily provisioned to join a home Wi-Fi network.
The entire line of GainSpan low power embedded Wi-Fi modules support the Limited-AP capability and are pin to pin and footprint compatible.
The Wi-Fi modules offer a variety of range and power consumption optimization options for both antenna and power amplifiers.
The Limited-AP enabled modules also use simple AT commands and provide serial interface (UART, SPI) to an 8/16/32-bit host microcontroller.
The modules significantly reduce RF design time as well as removing the burden of testing and certification.
