Product Overview

RN-171-EK is an 802.11 b/g WiFi evaluation kit for the RN171 module that can be used to quickly add WiFi connectivity to embedded applications. It has the flexibility to connect directly to a PC via a standard USB interface or to embedded processors through the TTL/UART interface. The board includes 2 convenient pushbuttons for controlling both SoftAP and WPS mode without software configuration. The status LEDs and jumpers enable rapid prototyping and integration into existing systems. The RN-171-EK can be powered by both a USB cable (included in the kit) or batteries. The board contains a battery boost circuit which makes it possible to power the board using two AAA batteries (the input voltage can go down to 2.0V DC when using the battery boost circuit).
