Wi-Fi modules enable projects to get off the ground quickly and easily

21-11-2016 | Segger | Subs & Systems

SEGGER has introduced Wi-Fi modules (2.4GHz and 5GHz supported) for its emPower Cortex-M evaluation platform. Evaluation software is included enabling a web server via Wi-Fi in mere minutes. The available modules in combination with the emPower platform permit comparison of different Wi-Fi modules, as well as evaluation of the company’s embOS/IP stack. The evaluation software consists of a web server running on the processor of the emPower board, accessible via any computer on the local network. The software is available in binary form (executable), and as a project for the company’s Embedded Studio, with source code of the application program. Their embOS/IP stack with Wi-Fi support handles all communication in the exact same way as in a system with wired Ethernet, allowing software engineers to port an existing application from wire-bound Ethernet to Wi-Fi easily and without any loss of functionality. The same server, client and application software can be used while exposing the same socket interface.
