Connect One Nano Socket iWiFi and Nano Socket LAN

Connect One introduced the Nano Socket iWiFi and Nano Socket LAN. The Nano Socket iWiFi/LAN modules are based on its CO2144 Internet Controller and targets machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions. Nano Socket iWiFi is an 802.11b/g embedded WiFi module with an integrated WiFi antenna. Nano Socket LAN is a 10/100BaseT LAN module with an integrated RJ45 connector. Nano SocketLAN is available now for under $25 for large volume customers. Evaluation can be done using an II-EVB-363MS evaluation board ($160 list price). Nano Socket iWiFi is available now for under $35 for large volume customers. Evaluation can be done using an II-EVB-363MO evaluation board ($160 list price).

Nano Socket Features

  • Only a few hours are required to add full-featured Internet access functionality over LAN or WiFi to an embedded device — including TCP sockets, SSL encryption, routing, e-mail, and file transfers
  • Uses the Connect One’s AT+i Protocol, which is a simple text-based API that enables fast and easy implementation of Internet networking and security protocols
  • Modules serve as a communications offload engine and inherent firewall, protecting the embedded device from the Internet attacks
  • High level of Internet security and encryption algorithms (AES-128/256, SHA-128/192/256, 3DES, SSL3/TLS1 protocol for a secure client socket session)
  • Nano Socket iWiFi also includes the latest WLAN encryption schemes (64/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2 enterprise)
  • Both modules share the same simple header-based pinout, allowing customers reduced assembly costs and increased flexibility when designing solutions
  • Includes USB, SPI, USART, and RMII interfaces
  • Nano Socket LAN operates at an industrial temperature range of -40° to 85° C (-40° to 185° F) and is RoHS-compliant
  • Support several modes of operation
    • Serial-to-LAN/WiFi Bridge — transparent bridging of serial data over LAN or WiFi
    • LAN-to-WiFi Bridge — transparent bridging of LAN over WiFi using direct RMII connection to existing MAC hardware
    • Full Internet Controller mode — allowing simple microcontrollers to perform complex Internet operations such as e-mail, FTP, SSL, and others
    • PPP emulation — offering existing (e.g., cellular modem) designs currently using PPP to interface to the cellular modem by connecting transparently over LAN or WiFi with no changes to application or drivers
