SEGGER News - Wifi Quick Start

SEGGER introduces WiFi Quick Start

SEGGER introduces WiFi modules (2.4GHz and 5GHz supported) for its emPower Cortex-M Evaluation Platform. Getting a project with WiFi off the ground has never been easier!
Evaluation software is included enabling a Web Server via WiFi in mere minutes.

The available modules in combination with the emPower platform permit comparison of different WiFi modules, as well as evaluation of the SEGGER embOS/IP (now: emNet) stack.

The evaluation software consists of a Web Server running on the processor of the emPower board, accessible via any computer on the local network.

The software is available in binary form (executable), and as a project for SEGGER’s Embedded Studio, with source code of the application program.

SEGGER’s embOS/IP stack with WiFi support handles all communication in the exact same way as in a system with wired Ethernet, allowing the software engineer to port an existing application from wire-bound Ethernet to WiFi easily and without any loss of functionality. The same server, client, and application software can be used while exposing the same socket interface.
