Wireless LAN (WiFi) now available on ChipworkX and Embedded Master

Long time ago I was searching for a WiFi module that could be used on .NET Micro Framework devices. Well, Digi announced that their Digi Connect Wi-series will be available for .NET MF, too, but until today I didn’t get any feedback if this is true.

GHI-00127-large Some weeks ago GHI announced that they offer a .NET Micro Framework module to run WiFi 802.11 wireless networks on their .NET MF devices.

GHI proudly announces the first .NET Micro Framework 3.0 hardware to run WiFi 802.11 wireless networks on ChipworkX and Embedded Master.

This new feature supports WEP, WPA, WPA2 secure networks through hardware AES and RS4 cyphers.

The wireless 802.11 hardware module is FCC, IC and WiFi certified and costs only about $30 in low quantities which makes it ideal for .NET Micro Framework devices.

Wow, that really looks great to me and I have to order one to play around with WiFi on .NET MF.
