Redpine Signals released a set of three WiFi SiP modules based on its ultra low power Lite-Fi 802.11n technology.
The modules offer a set of small form-factor and low-cost solutions for current and next generation "battery constrained" mobile handsets, digital still cameras, consumer electronics devices and industrial data communications, Redpine said.
The modules offer a complete 802.11n sub-system, integrating Redpine's Lite-Fi RS9110 802.11n SoC, a RF transceiver, power amplifier, EEPROM and external front-end components.
They connect directly to an antenna on the line side, and to a host processor through a choice of SDIO, SPI and EBI interfaces.
Using a single 3.3V power supply and a flexible reference frequency, the modules are designed for ease of integration and enabling low system cost, according to Redpine.
The modules are accompanied by device drivers for Windows CE, XP and Linux operating systems. The Windows CE drivers comply with Microsoft Windows CE 5.0/6.0 Test Kit.
