Redpine Signals Unveils WiSeConnect

By Meenakshi Shankar January 19, 2012

Redpine Signals, a developer of multi-standard wireless chipsets and systems, revealed its first self-contained low-power Wi-Fi module, WiSeConnect, for M2M markets.

As indicated, this new module supports features like Wi-Fi direct and enterprise security required for 802.11n Wi-Fi based machine-to-machine connectivity. It includes a full implementation of the SEP 2.0 software stack that enables emerging smart energy applications. In addition, it supports embedded AP functionality and in both client and access point modes, it offers WLAN enterprise security features.

"The most important requirement for M2M markets is 'ease of system-integration'. Back in 2009, with the highly successful Connect-io-n modules, Redpine played a pioneering role in enabling Wi-Fi 802.11n integration into these markets. Today we continue to push the bar higher, with the WiSeConnect module and its advanced features like Wi-Fi Direct and Enterprise security," Venkat Mattela, chief executive officer for Redpine Signals said in a press release.

The 35 mm x 22 mm WiSeConnect module operates with a single 3.3 V supply. It offers SDIO, SPI, Ethernet and USB interfaces for universal applicability. Also, it offers Wi-Fi Direct functionality that allows other Wi-Fi Direct devices as well as standard clients to connect to it.

Variants include single band 2.4 GHz and dual-band 2.4/5 GHz operation. The module is accompanied by a small footprint reference software running on the host system with examples that illustrate the simple-to-use wireless API.

Redpine is all set to showcase its new WiSeConnect module during the Arrow Electronics 2012 M2M Seminar Series starting on January 19th, 2012 in San Jose, CA.

In related news, Redpine Signals announced an agreement with California Eastern Laboratories (CEL) to extend Redpine's market reach. Through this agreement, CEL has agreed to offer sales and in-depth technical support for Redpine's entire range of low power, high performance 802.11n/ac wireless chipsets and modules covering multiple market segments including industrial, consumer electronics, medical and smart energy.
