Radicom Research's RW8200 Embedded WiFi Module supports Serial, SPI and optional USB interfaces. It integrates an ARM Cortex-M3 host processor, Broadcom's Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) supported WiFi chipset, RF front end, clocks and on- board antennas or U.FL connectors into a compact module. The RW8200 can be used to add state of the art data WiFi wireless operation to any system with minimum engineering resources.

Featuring self-contained WiFi subsystem, streamlined data accessibility with extended AT commands, the RW8200 can be used as a standalone WiFi station or network controller. It allows OEM's to incorporate wireless connectivity into a broad range of products that previously did not feature networking capability.

The RW8200 enables the addition of secure, interoperable WiFi functionality through a simple serial port using a basic AT command set for wireless products and extended command sets for extra features.

The RW8200 contains WiFi networking and TCP/IP stack that enables simplified WiFi integration into any MCU based consumer products. It provides WiFi adoption in emerging markets including Connected Home Appliances, Consumer Electronics and Cloud-based Sensors, Healthcare and Security services.  The RW8200 is perfect for TCP/IP socket level applications such as TCP server & client control for remote appliance sensors, or wireless cable, web server and other remote I/O applications.
