A family of WiFi modules provides easy WiFi connectivity through any processor-based device. With support for the latest wireless standards -- including 802.11b/g/n -- and USB 2.0 connectivity, the WiFiHU2 from Radicom Research offers next-generation WiFi transmission, all at a last-generation price.

The WiFiHU2 features reliable transmissions, protocol stack, and integrated 2TX/2RX MIMO antenna technology for maximum over-the-air throughput of 300Mbps downstream and 300Mbps upstream (PHY rates using 40MHz bandwidth). Optimal analog transceiver performance is achieved through fast receiver Automatic Gain Control (AGC) with synchronous and asynchronous control loops among antennas, antenna diversity functions, and adaptive transmit power control functions.

Designed for industrial OEM use, the WiFiHU2 features low overall power consumption and extreme temperature capabilities (-40°C to +85°C), all in a small footprint. WEP/WPA/WPA2 security protocols ensure host protection and firmware/configuration parameters are stored in on-board NVRAM. Soft AP support transforms any WiFiHU2 device into a WiFi wireless access point, allowing nearby WiFi devices (smartphones, tablet devices, etc.) to connect to the internet.

Radicom’s WiFiHU2 series comes in two models: WiFiHU2-a and WiFiHU2-c. The WiFiHU2-a model enables a faster time-to-market with built-in dual-chip antennas, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming RF development. The WiFiHU2-c model offers OEM design flexibility for antenna location using two U.FL connectors to attach antenna cables and antennas. Bulk pricing and custom OEM specifications are available. WiFiHU2-a and WiFiHU2-c are now available with prices starting at US$19.00 in quantities of 1,000 pieces.
