Alpha Micro launches low power wireless networking module for device connectivity

New to the Alpha Micro M2M connectivity portfolio is the xPico Wi-Fi module from Lantronix, a compact, embedded wireless device server designed for easy and fast serial-to-Wi-Fi connectivity. Said to be one of the world’s smallest and easiest to use serial-to-Wi-Fi device servers, the xPico Wi-Fi device has a tiny footprint of 24mm x 16.5mm and is a pin and form factor compatible member of the xPico product family.

“The new Wi-Fi addition to the xPico product line makes for very easy migration from wired to wireless applications,” said Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro Components. “In addition to the Wi-Fi capability – the xPico device’s small footprint, full IP Stack and advanced security makes for an extremely cost-effective and robust solution that will speed time-to-market – a competitive advantage for organisations using the product.”

Designed to be easy to deploy and use, there is no need for software development or to write a single line of code. It is a robust complete “device server application” with full IP stack and web browser featuring secure 256-bit AES encryption. Industrial-ready, the xPico Wi-Fi module delivers a serial data rate of up to 921 kbps and is capable of operating at extended temperatures: -40° to +85° C. Its low-power, small form factor provides rapid integration into size- and power-sensitive applications, including battery-powered devices. It also comes with a 5-year limited warranty.

According to Papakyriacou, “The unique form factor – half the size of a standard SD flash card, new low power Wi-Fi functionality, and the ability to implement solutions without writing a single line of code all make the xPico Wi-Fi a suitable choice for migrating to wireless connectivity.”
