The low cost GC-HF-LPB200 Embedded WiFi Module provides 802.11b/g/n 2.4 GHz WiFi networking for a printed circuit board device design. This compact HF-LPB200 module has an internal PCB antenna and is a low profile (23.1 x 32.8 x 2.7 mm) 48 pin/lead surface mount device. Low power consumption and power management make the HF-LPB200 ideal for applications requiring long battery operation.
The HF-LPB200 is powered by a Marvell 88MC200+88W8782 MCU and supports UART, SPI, USB and PWM communication. Configure the device with a user-friendly web page, via an AT+ instruction set or with the Smart Link Android/iOS app. The HF-LPB200 can operate in Infrastructure Station (STA) mode, Soft Access Point (AP) mode (also referred to as Marvell’s Micro-AP Wi-Fi Mode) or AP+STA mode. This enables a device to connect to a home-network and offer its own network at the same time. The LPB200 also supports point-to-point ad-hoc wireless connections.
With a small footprint, low cost, and rich feature set the HF-LPB200 Embedded WiFi Module is well suited for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The module is small enough to be added to most devices.
