The Serial-to-Wi-Fi Evaluation Kit offers a quick and easy way for customers to evaluate the capabilities of GainSpan's GS1011 ultra-low power wireless system-on-a-chip and the Serial-to-Wi-Fi embedded software for Wi-Fi networks. The Serial-to-Wi-Fi embedded software enables faster time-to-market for new or legacy products that need to add Wi-Fi to their designs.
The Serial to Wi-Fi Evaluation Kit provides GainSpan's customers the mean to evaluate the capabilities of the GS1011 ultra-low power wireless system-on-a-chip and the Serial to Wi-Fi embedded software for Wi-Fi networks. The Serial to Wi-Fi embedded software allows devices and appliances manufacturers to easily add Wi-Fi capabilities to their products with minor impact on the host microcontroller firmware.
The Serial to Wi-Fi Evaluation Kit provides all the hardware and software necessary to quickly set up a serial (UART) based link to a PC or external microcontroller. In order to evaluate the ease of adding secure Wi-Fi communications to a product using GainSpan's AT command set, the kit includes all the software tools necessary for configuration of Serial-to-Wi-Fi and GS1011 modules, data transfer using "AT" command-set and protocol analyzer for validation of packet & frame fields.
The Serial to Wi-Fi Evaluation Kit enables GainSpan customers to develop software on their existing microcontrollers to support the "AT" command set, and connect it to the serial interface on the evaluation kit reference board.
The evaluation kits ship with serial-to-Wi-Fi binary pre-loaded. Additional binaries are included in the kit to download to the module for evaluating other features and capabilities such as Wi-Fi protected Setup (WPS), Enterprise Security (EAP), RF Testing and Temperature and Light Sensing (TLS).
