Device Overview

Summary

The RN171XV module is a certified Wi-Fi solution especially designed for customers who want to migrate their existing 802.15.4 architecture to a standard TCP/IP based platform without redesigning their existing hardware.  The RN171XV module is based upon Microchip's robust RN171 Wi-Fi module and incorporates an 802.11 b/g radio, 32 bit processor, TCP/IP stack, real-time clock, crypto accelerator, power management unit and analog sensor interface.  The RN171XV module supports infrastructure networking for worldwide internet access directly by every node and adhoc connectivity for fully connected point to point networks, unlike many 802.15.4 implementations that need extensive, custom application profiles and additional bridging products. 

The RN171XV supports industrial temperature ranges, making it ideal for applications such as sensor networks, industrial or commercial controllers, utility meters, and M2M applications.  The RN171XV is available in 3 antenna options: Wire antenna, RN171XVW-I/RM, reverse polarity SMA connector (pictured) RN171XVS-I/RM and U.FL connector RN171XVU-I/RM.
