mikroProgconnector allows updating the firmware
- WiFi client mode
WiFi 5 click
WiFi 5 click features Gainspan’s GS1500M 802.11b/g/n Low Power Wi-Fi module with a PCB trace antenna. The click is suited for battery powered applications, due to its multiple power modes: standby, sleep, deep sleep).
The onboard module supports WiFi PHY rates up to 72.2 Mbps and is fully compliant with 802.11b/g/n and meets worldwide regulatory requirements.
- Multiple power modes: standby, sleep, deep sleep
- A PCB trace antenna
- WiFi PHY rates up to 72.2 Mbps
WiFi 4 click
WiFi 4 click carries SPWF01SA, a complete standalone WiFi module with a single-chip 802.11 b/g/n transceiver, a 32-bit STM32 MCU, along with a built-in 2.4 GHz ISM band antenna.
The 14 additional GPIO pins that line the edges of the board have alternate functions like SPI, ADC, I2C, DAC (although access to those functions depends on the firmware version loaded in the module).
- Built-in 2.4 GHz ISM band antenna
- A 32-bit STM32 MCU
- 1.5 MB of internal flash
- 64 KB of RAM
WiFi 3 click
WiFi 3 click is a complete self-contained WiFi solution carrying the ESP8266 module with a system on a chip.
The Standby power consumption of < 1.0mW is ideally suited for IoT projects and devices that need long battery life.
The module supports standard IEEE802.11 b/g/n agreement and has an integrated TCP/IP protocol stack.
- Easy to integrate it with sensors and actuators through its GPIOs
- Connect a whole device to the internet with minimal development time
- Features a PCB trace antenna
WiFi 2 click
WiFi2 click features the HLK-M30 WiFi module with a built-in TCP/IP protocol stack. WiFi2 click can be set up both as a TCP/IP client or server. You can configure it with either a static or dynamic IP address.
WiFi2 click supports standard security authentication systems (WEP64/WEP128/ TKIP/ AES, WEP/WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK); as well as multiple network protocols (TCP/UDP/ DHCP/DNS). All these features make WiFi2 click ideal for home automation applications, remote controls, telemetry etc.
- Built-in TCP/IP protocol stack
- supports standard security authentication systems
WiFi ESP click
WiFi ESP click can function in both AP (Access Point) WiFi mode, as well as in WiFi client mode. The click brings easy implementation and usage.
The module supports the following network protocols: IPv4/TCP/UDP/HTTP/FTP. Thanks to this the click can operate as a client device requesting a file from a file server device (FTP - file transfer protocol) in local network systems, or request a web page via the internet (IP/TCP/HTTP). It can also be used as a small web server, for example, a wireless weather station prototype, etc.
- Functions as Access Point and as WiFi client mode
- The module supports these network protocols: IPv4/TCP/UDP/HTTP/FTP
WiFi PLUS click
WiFi PLUS click features MRF24WB0MA – 2.4GHz, IEEE
The combination of the MRF24WB0MA and MCW1001 results in support for IEEE Standard 802.11 and IP services.
- Integrated PCB antenna with a range up to 400m
- Low power consumption (250 µA in sleep mode)
WiFly click features the well-known RN131 from Microchip. With preloaded firmware and built-in networking stacks, the integration of the WiFly click is really easy.
Another great thing is that users with a beginner-level of knowledge can use this click to set up a home network. WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) protocol on the Click board is designed for an easy and secure establishment of wireless home networks.
- Preloaded firmware
- Built-in networking stacks
- Easy to set-up a home network, even for beginners
CC3100 click carries the successor of the highly popular CC3000 module from Texas Instruments. Its claim to fame was that it simplified WiFi for embedded developers by integrating multiple Internet Protocols and a Wifi driver with a simple API.
CC3100 inherits all these benefits, and on top of that, adds an updated protocol stack (support for 802.11n) and cutting-edge security features (TSL encryption, hardware crypto-engine and more).
CC3100 click also has a 2.4GHz PCB antenna.
- Sophisticated power optimization features
- Powerful on-chip crypto engine
- CC3100 can function either as an access point, a station (connects to a router), or a node in a P2P connection
