“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.”

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.

Heralded as one of the world's smallest and easiest to use serial-to-Wi-Fi device servers, the xPico Wi-Fi device boasts 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."

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.

"The launch of xPico Wi-Fi once again highlights our focus on delivering innovative and easy-to-use solutions for machine-to-machine connectivity," said Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro Components.  "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 robust xPico Wi-Fi a clear choice for migrating to wireless connectivity."
