We’ve added a new Wi-Fi module to our growing portfolio of Internet of Things solutions. The new SX-ULPGN is a low-cost, ultra low-power Wi-Fi module designed specifically for use in high-volume embedded wireless products including smart home devices, systems used in factory automation, wearables, and medical devices.
The SX-ULPGN features a hostless mode that eliminates an external MCU to achieve the lowest system cost and ultra low-power. In hostless mode, the module’s internal CPU can act as a host with the application running from the internal memory. Peripherals and sensors connect to the CPU using any of the available interfaces, including UART, SPI, I2C, I2S, ADC, PWM, and GPIO. In addition, using our UART AT command option, you can quickly add a serial-to-Wi-Fi converter for existing MCU-based designs without porting any host driver.
