GainSpan Corporation Expands Line of Wi-Fi Drivers to Support Linux

GainSpan Corporation announced it has expanded its line of Wi-Fi drivers to support the Linux operating system. The new Linux SDIO drivers and reference examples have been validated on a Freescale i.MX6 Sabre-lite Smart platform, but can be easily ported to many other Linux or Android hardware platforms. The release of the new drivers extends GainSpan's portfolio of driver software and reference code in support of other Freescale MCUs/MPUs, as well as those from Renesas, NXP, and other popular MCUs. The new reference drivers support any of GainSpan's new generation GS2000 family of Wi-Fi modules. These fully-certified modules are based on the GainSpan GS2000 dual mode Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and (802.15.4) SoC, and provide a variety of features requested by customers for IoT devices such as low-power, high throughput, concurrent mode and meshing. The Linux SDIO IP2WiFi Driver provides a low-cost, simple Wi-Fi solution for devices that run the Linux operating system and a TCP/IP stack, with the Wi-Fi MAC and connection management tasks offloaded to the GS2000M module, alleviating the host from these tasks and allowing the host to spend more time sleeping when there is no IP traffic between it and the network. The Linux SDIO Serial2WiFi Driver is a solution that runs the full TCP/IP networking stack on the GS2000M module.
