UGFZ1 WLAN module

From Alps Electric Europe GmbH comes the UGFZ1 series of all-in-one WLAN modules for wireless networks.

The module's built-in CPU and networking protocol is combined with low energy consumption to ease setup of sensor or other device networks, such as those used for smart meters.

Alps wireless LAN module integrates the GainSpan-developed compact GS1011 chip featuring an antenna, Wi-Fi protocol and connection applications.

In addition, the module provides a UART physical interface, ADC, IC, pulse with modulator and GPIO analog/digital port which allow direct connection with devices such as humidity and lighting sensors.

The product's internal CPU chip eliminates the need for a host CPU or development of a network stack on the set device side.
