Enable Wi-Fi® Wireless Networks Using 8-, 16- or 32-bit PIC MCUs

Tue, 06/16/2009 - 12:26pm
Microchip Technology Inc. has announced the immediate availability of the ZeroG Wireless ZG2100M and ZG2101M Wi-Fi® Modules, ZeroG IEEE 802.11 Development Kit for Explorer 16 (part # AC164136) and the ZeroG Wi-Fi PICtail™/PICtail Plus Daughter Board (part # AC164136-2) at, and through the Microchip sales team.

Microchip and ZeroG Wireless, Inc. signed a multi-year, non-exclusive deal, which began with a joint engineering program to develop an optimized Wi-Fi solution for embedded designers and resulted in modules for Microchip’s 8-, 16- and 32-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs). The agreement ensures long-term compatibility and availability of this joint solution.

The ZeroG Wireless “Wi-Fi I/O” (ZG2100M and ZG2101M) is an easy-to-implement, low-power, low-system-cost Wi-Fi solution that provides Wi-Fi connectivity for nearly any electronic device.

Microchip’s development tools are based on the standard Microchip PICtail™ and PICtail Plus daughter-board connectors, which allow a designer to easily plug Wi-Fi connectivity into a variety of Microchip development kits. These kits allow easy development with the 8-bit PIC18, 16-bit PIC24 and 32-bit PIC32 MCUs, as well as the dsPIC DSCs using the broad Microchip development tools and MPLAB® Integrated Development Environment.
