SAN JOSE, Calif.--Micrium and Redpine today announced the integration of Redpine's embedded Wi-Fi solutions into platforms running the µC/TCP-IP protocol stack. With this, embedded systems developers building devices around Micrium's products can easily add Wi-Fi connectivity to their applications.
The Wi-Fi products supported from Redpine's Connect-io-n™ family of products include the RS9110-N-11-21 module—an ultra-low-power, single-stream, 802.11n, serial-to-Wi-Fi device. These modules completely contain WLAN functionality and connect to host processors through SPI or serial interfaces. The device drivers created as part of this partnership integrate cleanly with Micrium's TCP/IP stack running on the host processor, providing a complete IP-based WLAN interface to applications.
"The emerging Internet-of-Things market has a strong requirement for small-footprint, real-time OSes, compact and reliable TCP/IP stacks, and easily integrated, high-performance, future-proof Wi-Fi connectivity—a combination uniquely provided as a result of this partnership between Micrium and Redpine," said Venkat Mattela, CEO of Redpine Signals. "Our large and fast-growing customer base includes a wide variety of embedded products for medical, industrial, home automation, and smart energy applications, and we are pleased to offer them the right choice of embedded wireless connectivity."
"Micrium recognizes the importance of stable Wi-Fi hardware in the design of state-of-the-art embedded products," said Jean Labrosse, CEO of Micrium. "Our µC/TCP-IP contains the highest quality source code, and Micrium is recognized for offering a reliable, compact, high-performance, and well-documented TCP/IP protocol stack that has been optimized for embedded systems. We are proud to support the Redpine Signals products and bring these joint solutions to the market."
