SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- A new wireless sensor module that provides all the control and wireless functionality required to build and deploy wireless sensor nodes is now available from Redpine Signals, Inc. The SenSiFi(TM) module, designated as RS9110-N-11-31, is based on the company's ultra low-power Lite-Fi(TM) 802.11n technology to provide the benefits of ultra low-power wireless connectivity and the network capacity advantage of 802.11n to sensor networks in the industrial and enterprise arena. Redpine a leading developer of ultra low power multi-standard OFDM and MIMO silicon- based solutions for Wi-Fi(R), WiMAX(TM) and 3GPP LTE.
Redpine's SenSiFi wireless sensor module offers a complete foundation for building sensor applications utilizing its onboard ultra low-power microcontroller and wireless sub-system. It is able to collect a full range of telemetry information -- including temperature, humidity, motion, light, pressure, location, and battery level -- through standard analog and digital sensor interfaces. The microcontroller implements a small, embedded operating system on which multiple applications can be built. The fully self-contained module includes standards-compliant WLAN functionality with WPA2 security, a network stack that terminates TCP/IP and UDP connections with IPv6 capability, and configuration capability through UART or wireless. The module also includes a built-in antenna, frequency reference, power management, and flashed-in firmware. The module is available in an easy-to-assemble 31mm x 44mm QFN package.
"Our SenSiFi module is based on our proven and highly integrated RS9110
SoC, the industry's first and lowest power 11n single-stream solution," said
Venkat Mattela, CEO of Redpine Signals. "Conventional sensor solutions have
used a number of wireless transmission methods including Zigbee, Bluetooth,
and proprietary methods, while some use legacy 802.11b/g W
