Broadcom unveils new Wi-Fi module offering wireless connectivity more devices

Broadcom, a provider of semiconductor
solutions for wired and wireless communications, unveiled its new wireless
internet connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) platform.

The new module eases development effort and
simplifies the implementation of Wi-Fi connectivity in an array of consumer
devices, especially those with no current networking support. Visit for more news on wireless connectivity. 

The new Wi-Fi module features the Broadcom
BCM4319 wireless LAN MAC/baseband/radio. It includes an embedded processor and
unique self-hosted Wi-Fi networking library and software application stack.

The technology allows manufacturers to
integrate wireless connectivity into any MCU based consumer product.
WICED-based modules enable the addition of secure, interoperable Wi-Fi functionality
via a simple serial port using a basic command set that does not require any
significant changes in product micro-controller architectures.

The WICED platform enables Wi-Fi in several
emerging markets including connected appliances, smart energy systems, and
cloud-based health and home management services.
