GS2100M Low Power, High Speed 802.11b/g/n module (Smart Energy, Cost-Optimized)


The GS2100M module provides a quick, easy, and cost effective way for device and appliance manufacturers to add Wi-Fi connectivity to their products. Intended for smart energy and sensor applications, the module runs the SEP 2.0 Smart Energy Profile stack and has 3 high bit-rate sigma-delta ADCs for high resolution sensor and measurement devices.

This module provides a low cost, high speed serial to Wi-Fi connection to an embedded design built on an 8/16/32-bit microcontroller, achieving up to 40 Mbps throughput over an SDIO interface.

The GS2100M is an ideal solution for organizations with limited Wi- Fi or RF expertise or for those seeking faster time to market, as it reduces RF design time and removes the burden of testing and certification. The module is IEEE 802.11b/g/n compliant, and meets worldwide regulatory and Wi-Fi Alliance certification requirements.

The module runs the full Wi-Fi and TCP/IP networking stacks, completely offloading the host microcontroller. It supports a complete suite of security protocols, also without tasking the host microcontroller, including WPA/WPA2-Enteprise and Personal security modes, legacy WEP encryption, and upper layer security protocols such as TLS/SS and HTTPs. Alternatively, it can be run self-contained without a host.

For ease of provisioning, the module can be set up simply and easily from a smartphone or laptop through the innovative Limited AP mode or with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).

The module is single sided with castellation on the edges for the I/O connections for soldering down on the product’s baseboard.

The GS2100M has extended range with industry leading receiver sensitivity. It is available with a u.FL connector to add an external antenna for max performance or a PCB antenna for convenience while saving space. It is US/Canada (FCC /IC), Europe (ETSI) and Japan (TELEC) certified.
