WiFi-IT! Evaluation and Development Kit

EDK Overview  

Standard Version - EDK
 The standard version of the WiFi-IT! EDK is specially designed to evaluate and develop wireless embedded sensor and control applications using the WiFi-IT! WL11 and WL10 modules.

The EDK can be configured to support all of the WiFi-IT! module features and operating environments. Standard .1 inch center connectors are provided for monitoring all interface signals, voltages and clocks. Each interface signal is connected to an LED monitor through the Logic Engine. The Logic Engine drives the LEDs according to the module output signal level and in the case of pulsed or clocked outputs, displays a blinking LED to indicate changing signal levels. In many cases, the Logic Engine can replace the need to monitor signals with an oscilloscope. It can also be used to give a quick confirmation that a WiFi-IT! module has been correctly programmed for a given task.

The EDK board can be used to develop OEM hardware that is directly controlled by a WiFi-IT! module or uses the module for wireless communication. The OEM designed device is connected through a reverse mating connector to a WiFi-IT! module on the EDK. When the OEM system is completely verified the OEM PCB and WiFi-IT! plug directly into each other!

Professional Version - EDK+
The professional version of the WiFi-IT! EDK provides more code space for programs and additional functionality for handling device I/O, wireless operation and networking. Whereas the EDK is targeted toward embedded sensor and control applications, the EDK+ brings additional sophistication and flexibility to create a wider range of applications. A full list of the additional functions, provided by the EDK+, can be found here.


Kit Contents

        • EDK Standard
        • The EDK, standard version, contains a full WiFi-Basic Integrated Development Environment with the DCard, two modules and a preconfigured access point. The standard version compiler supports development of embedded low-power Wi-Fi enabled sensor networks.The standard version EDK supports code-free configuration of the I/O and wireless settings through the Progarm Configuration Panel. The standard edition EDK is targeted at the engineer looking to create ultra low-power, Wi-Fi capable embedded system hardware and software that is fully certified for a wide variety of sensor monitoring and WLAN applications.

          The EDK Standard contains:

          • Standard version of WiFi-Basic

Purchase

The EDK and EDK+ require modules with an 80-pin micro-connector. The WL11 uses castellations so that it maybe soldered directly into the design. Two WL11-IPC modules are included in the EDK and EDK+. For additional modules that operate with the EDK or EDK+, order from the modules below. These modules include the 80-pin connector adapter card and a Run-Time Engine (RTE) license. 

The WL10 comes with the 80-pin connector as the standard configuration.
