Orange Pi Development Boards

eConais, a company specializing in ultra low power embedded Wi-Fi modules, has recently announced WiSmart EC19D Wi-Fi module which it claims to be “the world’s smallest, most easily integrated, and lowest standby power single chip 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi System In Package (SiP) modules for the Internet of Things”.

econais_EC19DThis Wi-Fi module comes with the following features:

  • Wi-Fi – 802.11 b/g/n,Wi-Fi Direct, WPS, Wi-Fi Client Mode, Wi-Fi SoftAP Mode
  • Security – WPA/WPA2 support
  • ProbMe Configuration – Proprietary configuration method which enables any Wi-Fi device to configure the EC19D module without the need of any application
  • Protocol – TCP/UDP sockets, HTTPS/SSL, DHCP Client/Server
  • MCU I/F – Serial
  • Cloud Service Support (Xively)
  • Concurrent DLNA Renderer & Server (Q1 2014)
  • OTA FW Upgrade (Q1 2014)
  • Dimensions – 8x8mm
  • Certifications – FCC, IC, and EC

EC19D-SDKThere’s no data about standby power consumption, so it’s difficult to verify the company claim, however at 8x8mm, it could well be the smallest Wi-Fi module available.

eConais also provides an EC19D module Eval Board/SDK, pictured on the right, with SPI, I2S, USART, GPIOs interfaces to evaluate their module,  as well as “WiSmart Tools”, a suite of software tools, including libwismart library with support for TCP IP, WPA/WPA2, DLNA, etc.., source code for interfacing with external devices with sample applications, a GNU toolchain, and more.

WiSmart EC19D and its evaluation board are available now at an undisclosed price. Further information is available on eConais WiSmart EC19D page.

This beats Carambola 2.. now tell me the price.


It is quite tiny, but you can’t really compare it to carambola since this is based on stm32f1.


Actually its their other module that is stm32 based. Not sure about this one.
