A compact, integrated hardware and software module, WiPort® enables you to build wireless networking into virtually any electronic device with serial or Ethernet capability. With WiPort your products can be wirelessly accessed and controlled over a network or the Internet!

The matchbook-sized WiPort takes the complexity out of RF design and embedded Ethernet networking and WiPort enables engineers to focus on their core competency of designing products. It minimizes engineering risk, reduces cost and shortens development time. Just apply power and UART output, and the product is wireless and network-ready!

Powered by a Lantronix DSTni™ Ethernet processor SoC that includes a 10Base-T/100Base-TX MAC/PHY and 256 KB of on-chip SRAM, WiPort also includes a complete 802.11 b/g radio and 2MB of Flash memory for web page storage and system upgrades. WiPort is a dedicated co-processor module that optimizes network activity, permitting the device's host microprocessor to function at maximum efficiency. WiPort connects through its coaxial "pigtail" to an external panel-mounted antenna for rapid electromechanical integration. WiPort works with serial or Ethernet interface devices. SPI, I2C, USB or CAN connectivity can be enabled as a future option.
