Mandated in Europe, RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances) requires the reduction of certain substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The WiPort enables designers and OEMs to quickly and easily build secure wireless capabilities into virtually any electronic device with a serial or Ethernet port, the vendor says. The WiPort b/g includes a robust, real-time operating system, a full-featured network protocol stack and a proven, ready-to-use serial-to-wireless application. It also includes a built-in Web server for remote device communications and a Web manager for configuration via a standard Web browser.
RoHS-compliant Wireless Module
IEEE 802.11b/g wireless capabilities have been added to the vendor’s WiPort embedded 802.11 networking module. This new WiPort is billed as the first embedded RoHS-compliant device server to provide serial-to-wireless or Ethernet-to-wireless 802.11b/g capabilities in a compact, highly integrated hardware and software module.
