Developers using Freescale 8,16,32-bit processors can easily add Wi-Fi connectivity to their embedded applications
San Jose, CA -- June 17, 2010 -- GainSpan Corporation announced today plans to develop an All-In-One Wi-Fi module for Freescale Semiconductor's Tower System that will make it quick and easy for developers to add Wi-Fi connectivity to embedded systems. The prototype peripheral module will be on display in GainSpan's booth at the Freescale Technology Forum, June 21-24 in Orlando, Florida.
The Freescale development board features a fully certified Wi-Fi module from Gainspan, the GS1011M. Adding to other peripheral modules in the Tower System, the Wi-Fi board adds 802.11b Wi-Fi functionality to the Tower System and is ideal for developers who want to wirelessly connect their devices to the Internet as a part of the growing "Internet of Things." It is also well suited for battery-operated devices that require years of battery life. Requiring no knowledge of Wi-Fi protocols or RF propagation, the on-board Gainspan Wi-Fi module eliminates the hassle of going through FCC certification - easy, and fast.
