Wi-Fi and wired interchangeable embedded modules simplify development

21 September 2005 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

The Digi Connect Wi-ME and Digi Connect Wi-EM are fully customisable and secure 32-bit 802.11b wireless embedded modules. Based on 32-bit NET+ARM processor technology, the modules add wireless connectivity solutions to Digi International's Digi Connect family of products.

The wireless modules are pin-compatible and interchangeable with the company's wired embedded modules. The Digi Connect Wi-ME is a pin-compatible replacement for the Digi Connect ME in an enclosed RJ45-based module form factor. The Digi Connect Wi-EM is a pin-compatible replacement for the Digi Connect EM in an embedded board form factor.

They can be used in a variety of products, including access control systems, point-of-sale systems, RFID readers, medical devices, industrial automation systems, etc.

The embedded modules minimise design risk and reduce time to market by allowing customers to easily accommodate both wired and wireless functionality in one product design. They are also software compatible with existing Digi Connect products and NET+ARM processors. Additionally, the entire Digi Connect family of products offers a straightforward migration to a chip-based solution as production volumes grow. This further reduces design cost by allowing customers to leverage previous software investment across multiple products.

The modules also include state-of-the-art security features like WEP/WPA compliant software encryption and authentication which address today's stringent security requirements for wireless network environments. These compact single-component solutions offer true device server plug-and-play firmware functionality as well as the freedom and flexibility of complete custom application development based on the proven NET+Works development platform.

The Digi Connect Wi-ME and Digi Connect Wi-EM embedded modules already have FCC module approval eliminating the need to perform product certifications.

The Digi Connect family is comprised of the external Digi Connect SP and ultra compact embedded wired and wireless device networking solutions, including the Digi Connect ME, Digi Connect EM, Digi Connect Wi-ME, and Digi Connect Wi-EM. All Digi Connect products are available with Digi plug-and-play device server firmware, which eliminates the need for any embedded software development.
