Solid State Supplies introduces development kit for flexible, low power, embedded WiFi networks
Solid State Supplies announces a development kit for the XBee family of flexible embedded WiFi modules. The kit consists of two XBee WiFi modules and two carrier boards with serial and USB connectivity options. With SPI and UART serial interfaces, XBee modules, manufactured by Digi, support 802.11 b/g/n and SPI data rates up to 3.5 Mbps. In deep sleep mode they consume less than 2uA whilst in low-power mode the XBee WiFi can maintain a connection to the access point consuming only 1.5mA. The modules work with a variety of antennas including printed circuit board (embedded), U.FL, RPSMA and wired whip, and operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C. Each has four 12-bit ADC inputs and ten digital I/O lines.All
Operating from a single 3.1 to 3.6Vdc supply, the modules have a maximum transmit current of 250mA and receive current of 150mA, at 3.3V in normal operation.
The development kit part number is XK2-WFT-0 and it is available now at £99.95+VAT.
