Flyport Wi-Fi is a miniature web server module featuring a fully integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi interface and several interfaces for the ‘real world’.
The module integrates a powerful 16 bit processor which runs your custom applications and a Wi-Fi certified transceiver which handles the connectivity. A PCB antenna is on the module.
The module provides the embedded world with a powerful ‘Internet engine’ and a browser based interface over a LAN, Internet or GPRS network, in a small footprint, at low power and low cost. Real time data can be both displayed and/or updated from a standard web browser, even on smartphone or tablets, as Flyport supports dynamic web pages.
Flyport runs openPICUS open source framework and it has a serial booloader onboard. The free openPICUS IDE allows to create applications, to import web pages and to compile and download code on the module.
Designers or system integrators need only to be familiar with their own products or applications, since Flyport manages all the required network interfacing, internet communications protocols and web pages.
Dynamic web pages are supported with an innovative and easy to use method that allows ‘real world’ variables and the information from the host system (such as temperatures, speeds, levels, voltages, switch positions etc.) to be displayed or changed using simple HTML or advanced jQuery. Flyport connects to Wi-Fi networks through access points and routers. It is possible also to connect it directly by Wi-Fi Ad hoc mode. WEP, WPA and WPA-2 security are supported.
The internal Flash storage area of 256K bytes is big enough to contain the embedded web server, the communication stack and an application. Stunning web pages can be created to provide a great user browser-based interface for almost any system.
The module is suitable for battery powered systems since the openPICUS framework allows your application to control and turn on/off the Wi-Fi transceiver with just one code instruction.
Flyport Wi-Fi supports HTTP, TCP, UDP, SNTP, FTP and SMTP.
The module is provided with a standard 2*13 ways male pin header connector.
Most of pins are PPS enabled, it means they can be configured for UART, SPI, PWM, timer input, interrupt etc., as they are internally connected to the PIC 24F microcontroller.
