AMW004 Wi-Fi® Module

802.11b/g/n low power WICED Wi-Fi networking module

Note: This Module is Not Recommended for New Designs (NRND). For new designs, we recommend customers use the AMW106 Wi-Fi Module.

The AMW004 module is a fully certified small form factor, low power WICED-based Wi-Fi networking module perfectly suited to deeply embedded applications requiring medium/high data throughput in medium to high volume.

The module runs an embedded TCP/IP networking stack with SSL/TLS/HTTPS security and an onboard u.FL and PCB trace antenna all in a physical footprint of just 31.2 mm x 17.8 mm.

The AMW004 ships with a licensed version of ZentriOS which is the connectivity operating system of choice for resource constrained Internet of Things (IoT) devices. ZentriOS accelerates time-to-market by providing a common software foundation across multiple product lines. The OS provides integrated security, sophisticated network connectivity features, file management, rich peripheral interfaces, and much more. By abstracting the underlying complexity of connectivity, developers can focus on what they do best – build great products.
