WiPort Data Sheet
The WiPort™ is the most compact, integrated solution available to add 802.11b/g wireless networking to any device with a serial or wired Ethernet interface. Using this highly integrated hardware and software platform, you will add to your bottom line by significantly reducing product development time, risk, and cost.
The WiPort offers the highest level of integration available in a device server. Within a compact package is a DSTni™ x86 controller, memory, 802.11b/g radio, a 10/100 Ethernet transceiver, and dual high-speed serial
ports. All of this combines
to give you a complete WiPort is designed with
flexibility to support additional without requiring redesign.
To enable access to a local network or the Internet, the WiPort integrates a fully developed TCP/IP network stack and OS. The WiPort also includes an embedded web server that can be used to remotely configure, monitor, or troubleshoot the attached device.
WiPort serves web pages to a web browser when there is a need to gather information or communicate with networked devices. The WiPort becomes a conduit between you and your device over the network or Internet.
The Windows™-based configuration software, Device Installer™, simplifies installation and setup. The WiPort can also be configured locally through its serial port, or remotely over a network using Telnet (password- protected) or a web browser. Flash memory provides for maintenance-free, nonvolatile storage of web pages, and allows future system software upgrades.
Hardware & Software Description
The WiPort functions independently of a PC, providing a complete hardware and software solution for adding wireless connectivity to your edge devices. Within a single package this powerful device server comes with an 802.11b wireless connection, a 10/100 Ethernet transceiver, a reliable and proven operating system stored in flash memory, an embedded web server, a full TCP/IP protocol stack, and WEP security.
The WiPort software runs on a Lantronix DSTni controller which has 256 KB of internal SRAM, and 16 KB of boot ROM. The WiPort communicates to the edge device through a 3.3V logic level interface. 2 MB of flash memory is included for storing firmware and web pages.
