Connect One Delivers Versatile, Industrial-Grade SMT 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
KFAR SABA, Israel --(Business Wire)--
One™, the Device Networking Authority™, has released Nano WiReach
MAX-SMT module to support b/g/n WiFi (News - Alert) over an industrial temperature
range of -30°C to +85°C. Nano
WiReach MAX-SMT offers 3G routing, WiFi client and access-point
capabilities. Like its popular predecessor, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT
measures 2.0 x 3.7 centimeters (0.8" x 1.45"), allowing for a quick and
simple upgrade from WiFi b/g to b/g/n without hardware or software
To maximize connectivity and versatility, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT offers
multiple hardware interfaces, extensive firmware, and a full suite of
secure Internet protocols for up to eight WiFi users in router or
access-point modes. Designers gain immediate, full-featured connectivity
without any WiFi driver development or porting, minimizing project
development challenges and time to market.
The Nano WiReach MAX-SMT module can also serve as an independent WiFi
access point where WiFi infrastructure does not exist. With the module
acting as a WiFi access point, customers can connect to and manage their
deployed, in-field device via standard WiFi devices, such as iPhones,
iPads and other mobile phones and devices.
To ensure complete security, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT offers a highly
advanced level of Internet security. The module includes the latest WiFi
encryption algorithms (WPA/WPA2, in both PSK and enterprise modes),
Internet SSL communication and encryption algorithms. In addition, it
acts as an inherent firewall, protecting the embedded application from
attacks originating from the Internet.
"The new Nano WiReach MAX-SMT device is the first member of the Nano
WiReach family to support the 802.11n WiFi standard," noted Erez Lev,
Vice President Sales for Connect One (News - Alert). "We look forward to bringing
additional pin- and form-factor-compatible products that will allow our
customers to upgrade to the latest technology without design
modification and while using the same AT+i command set."
To maximize design-in flexibility, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT builds on its
predecessor's capabilities, offering firmware support for several modes
Router-LAN or WiFi clients gain a single cellular WAN connection
to the Internet (3G router) or routing between LAN and WiFi networks,
Embedded Access Point (News - Alert)-Devices containing WiFi can connect to the
product's embedded access point to control or manage processes,
to WiFi Bridge-Transparent bridging of LAN over WiFi enables
direct RMII connection to existing MAC hardware. Any microcontroller
with a built-in Ethernet MAC can be connected to WiFi with zero
to LAN/WiFi Bridge-Transparent bridging of serial data over LAN or
WiFi is boosted by the module's speedy 3-Mbps UART,
Internet Controller mode-Simple microcontrollers can use Nano
WiReach MAX-SMT's rich protocol and application capabilities to
perform complex Internet operations, such as e-mail, FTP, SSL,
embedded Web server and others. Internet controller mode can be used
with any hardware interface, and
emulation-Existing (e.g., cellular modem) designs currently using
PPP to interface to the cellular modem can connect transparently over
WiFi with no changes to application or drivers.
Nano WiReach MAX-SMT includes RMII, USB, SPI and fast UART interfaces
for easy integration into existing or new designs. It is available with
an antenna connector or a built-in antenna.
Nano WiReach MAX-SMT supports 10 simultaneous TCP/UDP (News - Alert) sockets; two
listening TCP sockets; SMTP, MIME, POP3, FTP, Telnet, and HTTP/HTTPS
clients; and an HTTP/HTTPS embedded Web server with a Web site for the
host application and one for configuring the module. Nano WiReach
MAX-SMT supports 64-/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2 (PSK and Enterprise),
AES-128/256, SHA-128/192/256, and 3DES encryption; and the SSL3/TLS1
protocol for a secure client socket session and a secure FTP session.
Availability and Evaluation Board
Nano WiReach SMT is available now. Pricing is less than $29 in high
volume. The II-EVB-365N evaluation board, priced at $160, provides an
easy environment for developing applications and testing Nano WiReach
MAX-SMT. A commercial temperature grade version of this module is
planned for release in Q2 this year. Visit Nano
WiReach MAX-SMT for more information.
