Internet Controller Contains WAP Web Site On Chip

The iChip Internet Controller is claimed as the first Internet peripheral chip to store and serve Wireless Access Protocol (WAP) documents as WML files in an on-chip WAP web site. According to the company, common industrial and household products now can send content to, and be managed by, WAP-enabled phones and PDAs. iChip’s WAP site is stored in 32 KB of on-chip, flash memory. The chip interfaces to a device’s host processor via a serial connection and the company’s high-level AT+iT API, which enables manufacturers with limited Internet programming capability to Internet-enable their devices by writing just a few commands in their application. Price for the iChip is $20 each/ 10,000. CONNECT ONE LTD., Santa Clara, CA. (408) 986-9602.
