ZeroG Wireless Inc. is sampling Wi-Fi modules operating over an extended temperature range, between -20C to 85C, meeting the requirements of most industrial applications. The ZG2101ME, an enhancement to the commercial temperature range of the ZG2101MC, enables a broad array of industrial, scientific and medical applications to benefit from Internet connectivity.

The Wi-Fi modules are designed using ZeroG's low-power, single-chip Wi-Fi transceiver, a chip optimized for low-resource, low-power embedded systems. To lower overall customer design cost ZeroG has partnered with microcontroller companies to create development kits with enhanced software and hardware, easing the development process for embedded Wi-Fi.

"The introduction of an extended temperature product for industrial applications that operate in more demanding environments is a key step forward in accelerating the expansion of the Internet of things," said Tim Colleran, VP of marketing, ZeroG Wireless.

Initial samples of the extended temperature range ZG2101ME are available now on ZeroG's online store. Production quantities will be available in March 2010. Development kits for the commercial temperature ZG2100MC, are currently available for Microchip and Freescale. Pricing for the extended temperature modules is $34.50 in 100-unit quantities.
