Tiny M2M Wi-Fi module enables mobile device access to machines
25 August 2013
Alpha Micro Components is now supplying the xPico Wi-Fi module from Lantronix, a compact, embedded wireless device server designed for easy and fast machine-to-Wi-Fi connectivity.
Highly flexible, the pin and form factor compatibility with the wired xPico enables engineers to create a single PCB design suitable for both wired and wireless applications.
Simultaneous access point and client functionality, a key differentiator for the xPico Wi-Fi module, allows the creation of its own secure Wi-Fi network for direct access as well as maintaining a Wi-Fi client connection to the existing Wi-Fi network. This allows machines to be directly accessed via smartphone or tablet.
With Lantronix' Zero-Host Load architecture, there is no need to manage or load drivers on the system or write a single line of code. The xPico Wi-Fi has been optimised to bring easy and secure wireless functionality to a wide range of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications from small battery powered devices to large industrial installations.
