The Key to Reliable, Robust Connectivity
If you are developing devices for the Internet of Things (IoT), Wireless LAN (WLAN) Interoperability Testing (IOP) is an important requirement to ensure that your products work properly with the thousands of wireless Access Points (APs) that are available on the market. In addition to the challenges and expense involved in testing your device one-by-one with these APs, any inoperability issues that are not resolved can damage your brand’s reputation and potentially result in additional engineering costs.
To help reduce your design risk and give you the confidence that your product will work as your customers expect, we have implemented a rigorous and fully automated in-house IOP test system to ensure broad AP compatibility with the WINC/WILC families of Wi-Fi® modules. For optimized coverage, these wireless modules are tested to work with carefully selected Wi-Fi chipsets from ten vendors that are used in popular AP brands. Each interoperability test runs for at least 48 hours and covers successful connection as well as bidirectional transfer of data between the device and AP.
To date we have tested 57 different APs using a total of 49 Wi-Fi chipset models from 35 popular families of devices. These chipset models are currently being used inside more than 1200 separate APs, while the families of chipsets are being used in more than 2200 APs. This covers more than 72% of the APs that have been introduced in the last five years. By offering this level of interoperability testing with our Wi-Fi modules, we make it easier and less costly for you to add reliable and robust connectivity to your design.
Tested Access Points
Below is the list of APs used in Wi-Fi Interoperability testing for all major firmware releases of the ATWINCxxxx/ATWILCxxxx families. The tests involve discovery of, connection to and data exchange with all these APs in each of their security configurations (open, WEP, WPA/WPA2). Both unicast and broadcast traffic are used in the tests. The interoperability testing is considered to be passed if the devices are able to successfully connect and exchange broadcast and unicast data for all the security suites that a given AP supports. The results can vary based on the test conditions, firmware versions and chipsets used inside the APs.
