EMW3162 WiFi Shield For Arduino
The EMW3162 WIFI Shield for Arduino consists of the base board plus the WiFi module EMW3162 (B). It allows you to connect your Arduino/Nucleo board with the Internet or to your home/office network. Thanks to the EMW3162 WIFI Shield, WiFi communication will become easy for devices that feature the Arduino connectivity.
The EMW3162 is a low-power, low-cost embedded Wi-Fi module with built-in high-performance low-power Cortex-M3 microcontroller, 128KB RAM + 1MB Flash, including a set of analog and digital interfaces provided, 3.3V single power supply, patch or pin packages. The module runs under the MiCO networking operating system that supports secondary development, and users can take advantage of the TCP / IP protocol stack and a collection of security encryption algorithms to perform a variety of embedded Wi-Fi applications.
The WiFi module EMW3162:
- Is as easy to use as an serial module due to the serial transparent transmission firmware.
- Supports high stability.
- Comes with ultra low power consumption, online standby 7mA only.
The base board:
- Is compatible with the Arduino interface, using only the internal UART.
- Works as an Arduino WiFi Shield, connects to Arduino boards like : UNO, Leonardo, Nucleo, Xnucleo, etc.
- Works as an Arduino WiFi board, allows connecting with Arduino shields
- Onboard USB to UART converter FT230XS, for UART debugging and/or firmware updating
- Onboard WiFi TX/RX LEDs, indicating the WiFi communication status
- Supports EasyLink fast matching (instant networking by pushing the SSID and password of the wireless router via smart phone APP)
- Supports one-key recovery to factory setting (no need to flash the firmware for configuration errors)
- Flexible boot mode configuration
- 500mA fast self-recovery fuse, stable and safe
