Our embedded Wi-Fi chips and modules make it possible to quickly and easily add Wi-Fi to devices, through a serial interface to a device microcontroller. GainSpan's chip handles all Wi-Fi functionalities, networking and security stacks, accelerating wireless device development cycles. Unlike traditional Wi-Fi, GainSpan Wi-Fi is ultra low in power – so low that our pioneering SoC consumes just a few µA of standby current and has a few ms of wake-up latency -- making our products ideal for battery operated devices requiring years of battery life.
