Radicom Research announced the release of their RW8200 Embedded Serial to Wi-Fi Modules. It integrates a M3 Cortex host processor, Broadcom’s BCM44362 Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) and an embedded processor.

Featuring self-contained Wi-Fi subsystem and streamlined data accessibility, the RW8200 allows OEM’s to incorporate wireless connectivity into a broad range of products that previously did not feature networking capability. 

The RW8200 has an UART interface with SPI interface support.  It enables the addition of secure, interoperable Wi-Fi functionality through a simple serial port using a basic AT command set for wireless products and extended commands for additional features.

The RW8200 Serial Wi-Fi Module contains Wi-Fi networking and TCP/IP stack that enables simplified Wi-Fi integration into any MCU based consumer products. It provides Wi-Fi adoption in emerging markets including Connected Home Appliances, Consumer Electronics and Cloud-based Sensors, Healthcare and Security services.
