SoC, Module, And Development Kit Create Low-Power Wi-Fi Devices

Easing the path to wireless connectivity, the G2C543 low-power Wi-Fi SoC, G2M5437 module, and Icon development kit help designers to connect consumer electronic devices directly to the Internet or to Wi-Fi Personal Area Networks. The products provide three ways to quickly and affordably embed ultra low-power Epsilon Wi-Fi technology into battery-powered CE devices. First, the G2C543 Wi-Fi and networking SoC includes a 32-bit CPU, operating system, network stack, crypto accelerators, power management subsystem, real-time clock and a versatile sensor interface, allowing it to serve as a networking slave or a standalone host. Next, the complete G2M5437 low-power, low-cost Epsilon module includes a power amplifier and antenna, G2C543 SoC, 8-Mbit flash memory, and comes pre-certified for FCC and CE regulations. Finally, the Icon Development Kit helps designers affordably and quickly add Wi-Fi to an applications processor-based design. It includes a small board with standard interfaces (UART, SPI, SDIO) and an Epsilon module pre-loaded with the Icon application. Icon enables the company’s module to become a Wi-Fi networking interface for mains- and battery-powered devices. The G2C543 SoC is housed in a 72-pin QFN package and is priced at $4.80 in volumes of one million units. The G2M5437 module is sampling now and is priced at $13 in 10k-unit volumes, and the Icon Development Kits cost $129 each. G2 MICROSYSTEMS, Campbell, CA. (408) 879-2614.
