Nano WiReach SMT

  • 0.8″ x 1.45″ (2.0 x 3.7 centimeter) WiFi module
  • 3G routing, WiFi client and access-point capabilities
  • Secure Internet protocols for up to eight WiFi users in its router or access point mode
  • Full-featured connectivity for embedded solutions without any WiFi driver development or porting
  • Can serve as an independent WiFi access point where WiFi infrastructure does not exist
  • Internet SSL communication and encryption algorithms
  • Acts as an inherent firewall, protecting the embedded application from attacks originating from the Internet
  • Includes RMII, USB, SPI and fast UART interfaces
  • Two versions: one with an antenna connector and one with a built-in antenna
  • Supports 10 simultaneous TCP/UDP sockets; two listening TCP sockets; SMTP, MIME, POP3, FTP, Telnet, and HTTP/HTTPS clients; and an HTTP/HTTPS embedded Web server
  • Web site for the host application and one for configuring the module
  • Supports 64-/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2 (PSK and Enterprise), AES-128/256, SHA-128/192/256, and 3DES encryption
  • Supports SSL3/TLS1 protocol for a secure client socket session and a secure FTP session
  • Extended temperature range of -10° to 65°C (14° to 149°F) and is RoHS-compliant

Nano WiReach SMT Modes of Operation

  • Embedded Router
    LAN or WiFi clients gain a single cellular WAN connection to the Internet (3G router) or routing between LAN and WiFi networks
  • Embedded Access Point
    Devices containing WiFi can connect to the product’s embedded access point to control or manage processes
  • LAN to WiFi Bridge
    Transparent bridging of LAN over WiFi enables direct RMII connection to existing MAC hardware. Any microcontroller with a built-in Ethernet MAC can be connected to WiFi with zero development effort
  • Serial to LAN/WiFi Bridge
    Transparent bridging of serial data over LAN or WiFi is boosted by the module’s speedy 3-Mbps UART
  • Full Internet Controller Mode
    Simple microcontrollers can use Nano WiReach SMT’s rich protocol and application capabilities to perform complex Internet operations, such as e-mail, FTP, SSL, embedded Web server and others. Internet controller mode can be used with any hardware interface
  • PPP Emulation
    Existing (e.g., cellular modem) designs currently using PPP to interface to the cellular modem can connect transparently over WiFi with no changes to application or drivers
