GainSpan Releases GS2200M Wi-Fi Minimodule for the IoT

San Jose, CA – GainSpan Corporation announces a new Wi-Fi module for connected products that is the smallest module in its class—as small as a penny—while still providing high performance, industry-leading resources and ultra-low power.

The latest in GainSpan’s broad offering of IoT tailored wireless connectivity solutions, the GS2200MIZ Minimodule provides a low-cost, convenient way for developers to add connectivity to their smart products, from commercial and industrial devices to smart home and audio/video applications, such as battery-powered cameras and security systems, all in a very compact size.

The GS2200M is powered by GainSpan’s industry-leading feature set including patented AP and Station concurrent mode operation, a comprehensive set of provisioning methods and security protocols (WPA2 Personal and Enterprise, RSA 4K, AES256, SSL/TLS 1.2), and an unparalleled 260nA hibernate mode. It also supports networking protocols such as embedded DHCP, DNS clients and servers, XML parser, and Bonjour device discovery.

The GS2200M can be used in a hostless mode (no external MCU) or hosted mode where it connects to any 8/16/32-bit microcontroller using UART/SPI, or SDIO interfaces.

Key features

- Industry-leading SRAM resources for customer’s applications

- Large FLASH

- Crypto engines for advanced security protocols at low power

- Integrated ceramic antenna

- Configurable for line-powered or disposable battery operation

- 802.11 b/g/n and 802.15.4 capable

- Extremely compact 13.5mm x 17.85mm x 2.1mm including antenna

- Fully certified module – FCC, CE and IC

“Our customers requested products that could be used in size-constrained applications but still provide the time to market benefits of a fully certified module,” Says GainSpan VP of Marketing Brent Little. “The Minimodule is our solution for them, and the most powerful IoT subsystem available for its size.”
