Showcasing for the very first time on the Alpha Micro (stand 19a) located in the new Wireless zone at NEW 2012, will be a wide range of ultra low power Wi-Fi modules from GainSpan, 2G and 3G small form factor modems from u-blox, energy harvesting devices from EnOcean and the new xPico chip-sized networking module for Ethernet connectivity from Lantronix.
A real alternative to Zigbee or Bluetooth, Alpha Micro’s GainSpan modules are designed for embedded devices which require 802.11b Wi-Fi connectivity services, such as energy monitoring, home automation and industrial control systems. 3 GainSpan evaluation kits will be given away at the show – come to the stand to register for your chance to be entered into the free prize draw.
Alongside the GainSpan product portfolio, Alpha Micro will be exhibiting the LEON-G100/G200 modules from u-blox, a cost efficient solution bringing full feature quad-band GSM/GPRS data and voice transmission technology in a compact form factor. Featuring low power consumption and GSM/GPRS class 10 data transmission with voice capability, the LEON-G100/G200 combine baseband, RF transceiver, power management unit, and power amplifier in a single, easy-to-integrate surface mount solution.
Also featured will be the LISA-U2 3.5G modules from u-blox ideal for consumer and industrial applications requiring high-speed data transmission rates, and machine-to machine applications. They are the perfect choice for mobile Internet terminals, PC tablets, in-car infotainment, connected navigation systems, security and surveillance systems, eCall, fleet management, metering, anti-theft systems and other automotive applications.
Completing the portfolio is the chip-sized xPico from Lantronix, designed for quick integration with minimal engineering effort. Boasting a chip-sized footprint of 24mm x 16.5mm, the xPico is a compact and complete networking solution that enables Ethernet connectivity on virtually any device with a serial interface. With its embedded device server application, Web server, and full IP stack, xPico allows seamless remote access to device data – simplifying the design integration process and providing robust connectivity.
