GS1011SoC Sample Pack of 100

Product Overview

The GS1011 device is a highly integrated ultra low power wireless single chip which contains an 802.11b radio, media access controller (MAC) and baseband processor, on-chip flash memory and SRAM, and an applications processor all on a single package. The GS1011 supports the full 802.11b (11Mbps) data rates providing scalability on data throughput for higher bandwidth application while still providing the ultra low power consumption for years of battery life. Along with its embedded software stack it offers a highly scalable, reliable, manageable and secure wireless link to meet the growing demand of wireless sensor networks utilizing the broadly accepted IEEE 802.11b,g,n standards infrastructure. This solution is ideal for use in healthcare, smart energy, building automation, industrial and commercial automation, and consumer applications. In addition, the solution provides capabilities such as location awareness which also make it well suited for logistics and supply chain applications for tracking asset location and status.
