Zentri introduces low power, high performance Wi-Fi module, AMW006 ‘Numbat’

The AMW006 ‘Numbat’ module, is an ultra-low power Wi-Fi networking module with full regulatory certification. Featuring a low-power MCU, it is designed for battery operated applications requiring moderate data throughput in any volume.

The module runs an embedded TCP/IP networking stack & webserver with RESTful API/web sockets and SSL/TLS/HTTPS security, and offers RF pads allowing for maximum antenna flexibility.
Numbat ships with a licensed version of WiConnect, Zentri’s reliable and easy-to-use serial Wi-Fi application that includes free support for cloud connectivity powered by Zentri Cloud Services (usage optional).

The AMW006 ‘Numbat’ module, a fully certified and intelligent 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module, boasts a low power 84MHz core to ensure fast operation during active communication cycles and a low 2.8uA (with active RTC) standby current during non-active cycles. The module, powered by the latest WiConnect 2.0 release, offers a full read/write file system that can be used to store application data and web pages to be served directly from the module. WiConnect 2.0 commands also offer direct HTTPS file upload or download from any web server on the Internet using bank-level security.

Using WiConnect, each uniquely signed module can also download fully secure, over-the-air wireless updates that allow individual firmware bundles to be delivered to any individual, or group of modules in the field. The Numbat module also runs a high-performance secure embedded TCP/IP networking stack with support for SSL/TLS/HTTPS and numerous Wi-Fi networking protocols including TCP client/server, UDP client/server, HTTP client/server, DHCP client/server, DNS, SNTP and much more.

The PCB-style module has dimensions of 20.3 x 2.9 x 15.2mm and offers up to +19dBm transmit power with a sensitivity of at least -94dBm which, when used with the integrated antenna diversity algorithm, provides >1000ft (330m) line-of-sight range.

The AMW006 ‘Numbat’ module is supported by a number of evaluation and development platforms including the microcontroller agnostic, AMW006-E03 ‘Moray’ board that includes a simple USB-serial converter that allows PC based tools such as a terminal emulator to validate both the WiConnect API and Numbat’s physical performance. For users choosing to develop with Arduino, Nucleo and FRDM platforms, Numbat is supported by the AMW006-A01 ‘Mantis’ board and WiConnect drivers are available on the mbed developer website.
