The RN-171-XV series from Microchip are certified IEEE 802.11b/g WiFi modules that incorporate a 32 bit SPARC processor, TCP/IP stack, real-time clock, crypto accelerator, power management unit and an analogue sensor interface. These modules are specially designed to allow the migration from existing 802.15.4 architecture to a more standard TCP/IP-based platform without the need for hardware redesign.
RF Carrier Frequency: 2.4GHz ISM Band. RF Transmit Power: up to +12dBm. Receiver sensitivity: -83dBm. Host communication: serial UART. Host data rate: 464kbps with RTS/CTS flow control. 8 x GPIO pins. 3 x analogue sensor inputs. Real-time clock for wakeup and time stamping. Antenna options: Wire (RS 769-4144), SMA connector (RS 769-4141), U.FL connector (RS 841-7481). On-board TCP/IP stack. No custom profiles needed. Embedded networking applications: DHCP, DNS, ARP, ICMP UDP, Telnet, FTP client and HTML client. Security: WEP, WPA and WPA2-PSK. WPS mode for easy configuration. Drop in WiFi replacement for existing systems that currently use 802.15.4 modules. Ultra-low power: 4μA sleep, 40mA Rx, 180mA Tx @ 10dBm. Power supply: +3.0V to +3.7Vdc. Operating temperature range: -40 to +85°C. FCC/CE/ICS certified. Applications: Industrial metering, HVAC control, Room temperature sensors, Pump configuration and control, Telemetry, PV/solar controllers, Robotics, local communication for the Internet of Things (IoT)
