Each embedded system in the billions of electronic devices and systems around us addresses a specific dedicated purpose in a very wide range of applications, e.g. medical diagnostics, geological analysis, electronic surveillance, cash registers. The list is almost endless.

They all use microcontrollers to implement a portion of their functionality, and most of them communicate with the outside world—to other devices or control systems, or to a human interface. Connectivity through wireless means provides a great deal of flexibility to the embedded systems, and indeed, in many cases wireless is the only means possible.

This article examines how wireless connectivity based on the IEEE IEEE 802.11n standard can be integrated into embedded systems, providing a universal IP based networking that is future-proof, and enabling the "Internet of Things."

Throughout this article, term WLAN is used to refer to the wireless protocol defined by the IEEE 802.11 standard. This term is interchangeably used with "Wi-Fi" in popular use.
