MiWi Protocol to Wi-Fi Wireless Demo Kit

Part Number: DM182018

The MiWi™ Protocol to Wi-Fi® Wireless Demo kit allows developers to evaluate and experiment with MiWi protocol to Wi-Fi gateway solutions.  The kit includes a Wireless Evaluation Board with both the MiWi protocol and Wi-Fi transceivers.  The kit also includes two MiWi Demo Boards to create a three node MiWi protocol network.

The Wireless Evaluation Board can be connected to a client device, such as a laptop or a mobile phone, using the Wi-Fi network.  Based on the application running on the MiWi protocol nodes, the information exchanged can be displayed on the client device.  To learn more about MiWi wireless protocol, please visit www.microchip.com/MiWi.  To learn more about Wi-Fi solutions, please visit www.microchip.com/WiFi.
