Microchip
Complete, Standalone IoT Endpoint module with integrated MCU and Wi-Fi SoC

The SAMW25 module brings wireless Internet connectivity to any embedded design. This integrated low-power module offers the ideal solution for designers with no previous 802.11, IP Stack or RF experience seeking to add Wi-Fi connectivity to their products. It provides connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT) for the vast array of battery-powered devices and applications requiring the integration of wireless-local-network (WLAN) connectivity without compromising on cost and power consumption.

The SAMW25 module is based on the industry-leading WINC1500 Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SoC) and the latest ARM Cortex-M0+ processor technology. This turnkey system provides an integrated software solution with application and security protocols such as transport-layer security (TLS).

  • Easy-to-use development kits are available for quick prototyping extensive library of project examples and applications are available via Atmel Studio IDE.
  • Out of the box cloud connectivity with cloud agent software from any of the Atmel cloud partners.
  • RF Certified modules accelerate time to market by saving certification cost and significant lab approval resources.
