AirborneTM Embedded Wireless Device Server Module Serial to 802.11b/g Wireless LAN

High performance device networking solutions
AirborneTM is a line of highly integrated 802.11 radios and modules. The wireless device server module includes a radio, (which may be purchased separately) a base-band processor, an application processor and software for a “drop-in” web-enabled WiFi solution. Since there’s no need to develop the software, or to develop the RF and communications expertise in-house, OEMs can realize reduced product development costs and a quick time-to-market. AirborneTM modules provide instant LAN and Internet
connectivity, and connect through standard serial interfaces (other Airborne modules offer an Ethernet interface) to a wide variety of applications.

Highly interoperable with advanced security
The extremely small footprint design makes AirborneTM easy to embed into new or existing designs. The module is interoperable with industry standard 802.11 access points and advanced security standards such as WEP, WPA and LEAP, that provide a low cost
infrastructure for connection to a LAN and to the Internet. The built-in TCP/IP stack and application software provide embedded devices with instant LAN and Internet connectivity without special programming of the module – only simple configuration is required using DPAC’s HTML interface. An integrated web server makes it easy to remotely monitor and control any device using a standard browser. Additionally, the OEM can create custom web pages that deliver content from their application.

The AirborneTM modules have been designed to provide wireless LAN and Internet connectivity in these industries:

  • transportation
  • medical
  • warehouse and logistics
  • point-of-sale (POS)
  • industrial automation
  • military
  • scientific research

Equipment with an embedded AirborneTM module can be monitored and controlled by a handheld device, by a PC in a central
location or over the Internet. The Evaluation & Design Kit provides software and utilities that allow a developer to quickly and easily operate and evaluate the Wireless Device Server module.
