Will My Wireless Ever Cut the Power Cord?

Smart Grid TMCNet

Carl Ford: "As an advocate for our future of the wireless Internet, I am depressing to watch as I bring power strips to manage my computer and phone. My use of my phone has a hot spot almost everywhere I travel, and it has made me sadly cabled to power outlets. If you are ever looking for me, I am probably no more than five feet from any wall with an outlet. In my car, I have the lighter charger that is an A/C converter connected to a power strip, as well, which for some of my vehicles makes my AAA card valuable."

GainSpan Announces Successful Integration of GS1011MIP Wi-Fi Module with STMicroelectronics 8/32-bit MCU

Embedded Systems News

GainSpan's GS1011MIP Wi-Fi module is the ideal solution to enable fast development of Wi-Fi enabled devices. It includes a full Wi-Fi stack including WPS for easy provisioning, Over-The-Air firmware update, optional networking stack and services and 802.11i security. In the demonstration, the networking stack and security reside on the GS1011MIP offloading the MCU from all Wi-Fi and networking functions, while the host MCU handles the application and connects to the Wi-Fi module over UART or SPI interfaces using AT commands. The Wi-Fi module also features an ultra low power SoC that consumes just a few µA of standby current and has a wake-up latency of only a few ms, which is ideal for battery operated devices requiring years of battery life.
