Wi-Fi, (Wireless Fidelity) is a networking standard now used by over a billion people and with about 800 million new Wi-Fi devices coming online every year.
The Wi-Fi alliance was formed in 1999 to certify interoperability of wireless Local Area Networks (LANs) based products to IEEE 802.11. Wi-Fi was intended to be used for fixed mobile computing devices in LANs, but now is being seen in consumer electronics such as televisions, DVD players and media centres. Most implementations of Wi-Fi contain one or more Access Points, which are accessed by one or more clients using the unlicensed spectrum near 2.4GHz or 5GHz.
Increased range and faster data speeds are part of the evolution of the 802.11 standard, using MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) and exploiting spatial diversity and various coding schemes to achieve theoretical speeds of 540 Mbit/s over distances up to 50 meters.
Our WiFi modules are specifically designed for Systems Integrators to ensure a straight forward design in, low risk and low module cost.
