The WiFly GSX module is a complete ultra low power embedded Wireless 802.11b/g (TCP/IP) solution. The WiFly features commercial temperature specification (0C to 70C), so if you need industrial temp spec, check out the WiFly GSX. The device enables wireless connections to any embedded serial port and supports bi-directional RS232 signaling at a rate of up to 921Kbps. Just attach WiFly to your device's RS232/EIA232 (TTL level signals) port, plug it in, and you're connected. The transmit range can be up to 330' (100m), depending upon environmental considerations.
The combination of ultra low power and the ability to wake up, connect to a wireless network, send data and return to sleep mode in less than 100 milliseconds, allows the WiFly GSX to run for years on two standard AAA batteries. Using only 100mWatts when awake and 10uWatts when asleep, this remarkable power efficiency makes possible a new class of internet enabled products.
The WiFly GSX module incorporates a 2.4GHz radio, processor, TCP/IP stack, real-time clock, crypto accelerator, power management and analog sensor interfaces. This complete solution is preloaded with software to simplify integration and minimizes development of your application. In the simplest configuration the hardware only requires four connections (PWR, TX,RX, GND) to create a wireless data connection. The transmit range can be up to 330' (100m), depending upon environmental considerations.
Developers will want to use the GC-DK-WIFLY-GSX evaluation board for prototyping and designing there WiFly GSX systems. The Evaluation kit includes the WiFly GSX (RN-131G) module mounted on a carrier board with status LEDS, power regulation and a serial link to a PC computer.
