Alpha Micro Components launches GainSpan small, low-cost Wi-Fi modules for the Internet of Things; GS1011MIPS and GS1011MExS expand Alpha Micro's portfolio of Wi-Fi modules offering some of smallest footprints in market

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Extending its portfolio of embedded Wi-Fi modules, Alpha Micro Components today announced the introduction of its Gainspan GS1011MIPS and GS1011MExS, two of the smallest modules on the market. At just 19.4 mm x 28.7 mm, the new modules provide a significant reduction in footprint and offer an easy to integrate, compact and cost-effective solution for any power critical cost sensitive wireless application in the emerging Internet of Things arena.


Despite the small form factor, the GS1011MIPS and GS1011MExS offer complete 802.11b ultra low power Wi-Fi client or AP solutions. The GS1011MIPS provides low power Wi-Fi connectivity with +8dBm of transmit output power, while the GS1011MExS is an extended range solution offering best in class transmit power of +18dBm.

The GS1011MIPS and GS1011MExS offer easy system integration and minimal use of host resources. The modules provide both UART and SPI interfaces, making it possible to connect to any 8/16/32 bit microcontroller using simple AT commands. The modules are pre-loaded with serial to Wi-Fi firmware with complete Wi-Fi functionality including security, WPS and provisioning features running on the module as well as the networking stack, an embedded HTTP server with network configuration pages, and limited AP capability for ease of provisioning.

The modules feature built-in trace or external antenna options through a U.FL connector, an industrial operating temperature range from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, and are certified or pre-certified for all major regulatory requirements including FCC, IC and ETSI.

The size-optimized GS1011MIPS and GS1011MExS are the newest additions to Alpha Micro's portfolio of Wi-Fi modules which include the soldered down GS1500M (802.11b/g/n) and ultra-low power GS1011M (802.11b), as well as the connectorized GS1011MIC.

"These ultra low power small form factor modules from Gainspan really do give developers the option of adding Wi-Fi connectivity, which is an incredibly ubiquitous standard, onto products traditionally targeted for ZigBee or Bluetooth. The interoperability of the 802.11 standard makes this a compelling alternative. We are seeing a host of HAN (Home Area Networks), telecare, and body worn tracking units now adopting this technology", said Maxine Hewitt, Marketing Director, Alpha Micro Components. GainSpan's expanding portfolio of modules, with the drivers to support various microcontrollers, and software solutions, is playing a critical role in helping device manufacturers get products to market quickly."
