eConais WiSmart EC19D is an 8x8mm Wi-Fi Module for the Internet of Things

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”.

This 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

There’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.
