GainSpan Corp. launches the GS1011MExSC low-power embedded connectorized Wi-Fi modules. The modules come either with a built-in PCB antenna (GS1011MEPSC) or with a u.FL connector for an external antenna (GS1011MEESC).

They use a 40-pin connector that eases the addition of Wi-Fi connectivity to existing or new products. It also enables the module to be easily swapped, giving manufacturers a flexibility in shipping devices with a PCB or external antenna depending upon the range required for the application.

The GS1011MExSC modules have UART and SPI interfaces for integration with any 8/16/32bit MCU and an external power amplifier for extended range, with best-in-class +18dBm transmit power. They are fully certified for all major regulatory domains including FCC, IC, ETSI as well as TELEC in Japan.

Like all GainSpan Wi-Fi modules, the GSMExSC products are preloaded with serial to Wi-Fi firmware for complete Wi-Fi functionality. They offer advanced networking features and capabilities not readily available with other Wi-Fi modules including easy provisioning from a smartphone, over-the-air firmware updates, enterprise security, embedded DHCP, DNS and HTTP(S) servers, an XML parser, advanced device discovery and more.

The modules are sampling now and will ship in volume production in late October.
