SX-ULPAN-SHIELD

Evaluate Silex Wi-Fi on any MCU Platform with Arduino Connectors

The SX-ULPAN-SHIELD is a Wi-Fi module-based adapter board designed to plug into Arduino-compatible boards that contain a microcontroller (MCU), such as the Freedom development kits from NXP (FRDM-K22F) or boards from other MCU vendors that are derived from Arduino.

Top Features:

  • Evaluation Kit for the SX-ULPAN Wi-Fi Module (based on QCA4004 radio)
  • Plug-in board that adds 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity to MCU boards that are derived from Arduino
  • Silex's Own Optimized Radio Driver
  • Demo Applications

The SX-ULPAN-SHIELD is a Wi-Fi module-based adapter board derived from and compatible with Arduino form factor. It is designed to plug into Arduino-compatible boards that contain a microcontroller (MCU), such as the Freedom development kits from NXP (FRDM-K22F) or boards from other MCU vendors that are derived from Arduino.

It provides provides the means to evaluate the capabilities of Silex Technology’s ultra-low-power Wi-Fi module, the SX-ULPAN. The SX-ULPAN-SHIELD ships with the application program installed for the Freedom Kinetis FRDM-K22F which helps you evaluate the basic wireless functions below:

  • Basic wireless connectivity
  • AP Scan, WEP/WPA conguration
  • Basic TCP/IP function with HTTP, DNS and SNTP
  • Soft Access Point (AP), WPA client
  • Wireless Conguration (DTIM, Bitrate etc.)

Software Features:

  • Modes: Supports Client and Access Point mode
  • Plug-in board that adds 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity to MCU boards that are derived from Arduino
  • WPS: Supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
  • Supports Roaming, Wi-Fi Direct, and Smart Antenna Slection
  • IPv4, TCP, and UDP Protocols Supported on Chip: Helps offoad the host microcontroller. Functions supported include ARP, iPv4, UDP, TCP socket support, DHCPv4, Neighbor discovery, broadcast,
