Connect One has collaborated with Broadcom Corporation to enable Connect One’s G2 Wi-Fi modules for the M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) market. The combination of Broadcom’s WICED Wi-Fi system-on-chip, together with Connect One’s iChip Internet Controller, offers functionality and ease-of-integration to many applications in areas such as home automation, medical, security, industrial control, smart grid, asset management, and point of sale.
Building on its Internet protocols, security, management, and simple API, Connect One’s G2 product line enables product manufacturers to connect, secure, and manage IoT products over the Internet in just a couple of hours.
The G2 modules feature Broadcom’s BCM43362 Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SoC), 802.11b/g/n MAC and baseband functionality, offering excellent system performance for IoT connectivity. The G2 modules build on this foundation with Connect One’s iChip Internet Controller. The resulting solution provides multiple hardware interfaces, extensive firmware, and a full suite of secure Internet protocols for Wi-Fi client mode and up to eight Wi-Fi users in router or access-point modes. Designers gain immediate, full-featured connectivity without any Wi-Fi driver development or porting, thereby minimizing project development challenges and time-to-market.
Connect One’s G2 Wi-Fi modules will be on display at Embedded World 2015 in Nuremberg, Germany, February 24-26 in Hall 5, Stand 251.
