Product Overview

RN174C-I/RM is an RN174 based prototyping board with chip antenna configuration is field ready, WIFI certified 802.11 b/g solution. It has flexibility to connect directly to standard RS232 interface or through TTL UART interface to embedded systems. The status LEDs and jumpers enable rapid prototyping and integration into existing systems. It is built upon Roving Networks' RN171 module. Its module incorporates a 2.4GHz radio, processor, full TCP/IP stack, real time clock, FTP, DHCP, DNS, and HTML client to connect to a remote server. It is smallest, lowest power module available and supports ad hoc and infrastructure networking modes. Additionally, the analog sensor interface provides direct connections to send temperature, acceleration, and other analog data without requiring additional hardware. Programmed and controlled with simple ASCII command language. Once set up it can scan to find an access point, associate, authenticate, and connect over any WIFI network.
  • Full On board TCP/IP stack (no external drivers required)
  • Designed to operate in ultra low power mode using jumpers
  • Hardware interfaces: UART and SPI Slave
  • Supports Adhoc and infrastructure networking modes
  • User programmable GPIO & ADCs
  • Real time clock for time stamping, auto sleep, and auto wakeup modes
  • Run directly from batteries or regulated power supplies
  • Configuration over serial or wireless interface using simple ASCII commands
  • Over the air firmware upgrade
  • Secure WIFI authentication schemes (WEP/WPA/WPA2)
