The GS1500M 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module from Gainspan has been presented with the Wi-Fi Direct certification from Wi-Fi Alliance (News - Alert).

Wi-Fi Direct is a certification mark for devices supporting a game-changing new technology, allowing Wi-Fi devices to connect directly, making it simple and convenient to do things like print, share, synch and display.

GS1500M modules certified with Wi-Fi Direct means they can connect to one another without joining a traditional home, office or hotspot network. Wi-Fi Direct extends the GS1500M module’s mode of operations which already includes Limited Access Point (News - Alert) (Limited AP mode), and Client of an existing infrastructure network (Client/Station Mode).

According to Gainspan, the GS1500M is a fully certified module, offering a quick, easy and cost-effective way for OEMs to enable high-quality Wi-Fi connectivity (802.11b/g/n) in their platforms. The module provides multiple serial UART or SPI interfaces, enabling connection to any embedded design using a 8/16/32-bit microcontroller via simple commands.

“By offering Wi-Fi Direct, we not only support our customers with an interoperable and popular feature,” according to Bernard Aboussouan (News - Alert), GainSpan VP of marketing, “but also, and more importantly, we meet the expectations of their customers for robust, secure and easy to use connectivity solutions. Wi-Fi Direct plays a key role in meeting this demand and enhancing the growth of the burgeoning Wi-Fi market. This latest certification demonstrates our commitment to being on the forefront of helping transform the way millions of people use Wi-Fi.”

GS1500M modules bring down development time to market, and include a self-contained solution that minimizes host processor loading. The systems are pin and software compatible with GS1011M, operate with standard 802.11b/g/n access points at speeds of up to 72.2 Mbps, contain easy device provisioning using Limited-AP or Wi-Fi Protected Set-up (WPS) and involve low power consumption through dynamic power management modes.
