If you need to get a WiFi solution up and running quickly, the FlyPort could be the answer. It's a MCU, a WiFI module and an antenna, all mounted on one small and easy to use board.
The MCU and WiFi module talk to each other through a Microchip certified TCP/IP stack, making send and receiving data from the internet easy.
The onboard MCU contains a bootloader, so no additional programmer is needed, and a free IDE makes writing code very easy.
FlyPort WIFI module has enough processing power and memory space to let you:
- - Manage sensors
- - Manage actuators
- - Create micro webservers
- - Create complex network of sensors/actuators based on the existing WIFI networks
- Based on Microchip PIC 24F256FJ106GA 16 bits processors and the Microchip WIFI module MRF24WB0MA/RM
- Compatible with 802.11 b/g/n
- Module runs TPC-IP stack (Microchip certified) and application layer.
- Module has preloaded BRUTUS (serial bootloader based on DS30) to let you
- Download or upgrade firmware using a serial connection
- Module includes a PCB antenna with a RF range up to 400 meters
- Dimensions: 35 x 48 x 7 mm
- Connector: 26 pins, 2*13, pitch 2.54mm, Male pinstrip
- Power supply: 5V or 3,3V
There's enough code space on the module's processor to write web servers, servo drivers, or a whole range of other stand-alone functions. Communication with the module at a hardware level is made through a 26 pin double row header and gives access to the following :
- 5 Digital Inputs : 5V Tolerant
- 5 Digital Outputs : 4 can be used as PWM, 3,3V level
- 4 Analog Inputs : 10bits ADC, VRef=2,048V 1bit=2mV
- 1xUART port
- 1xSPI port
- 1xI2C port
