SEGGER introduces Wi-Fi modules (2.4GHz and 5GHz supported) for its emPower Cortex-M Evaluation Platform. Getting a project with Wi-Fi off the ground has never been easier. Evaluation software is included enabling a Web Server via Wi-Fi in mere minutes.
The available modules in combination with the emPower platform permit comparison of different Wi-Fi modules, as well as evaluation of the SEGGER embOS/IP stack.
The evaluation software consists of a Web Server running on the processor of the emPower board, accessible via any computer on the local network.
The software is available in binary form (executable), and as a project for SEGGER’s Embedded Studio, with source code of the application program.
SEGGER’s embOS/IP stack with Wi-Fi support handles all communication in the exact same way as in a system with wired Ethernet, allowing the software engineer to port an existing application from wire-bound Ethernet to Wi-Fi easily and without any loss of functionality. The same server, client, and application software can be used while exposing the same socket interface.
