The Renesas Synergy reference code is currently available in its Serial to Wi-Fi version, where the networking stack and services reside on the GS2000 modules. The corresponding IP to Wi-Fi version, where the networking stack resides on a Renesas Synergy MCU host, will be available shortly. Serial to Wi-Fi and IP to Wi-Fi reference codes are also available for other higher end Renesas MCUs while Serial to Wi-Fi reference code is available for lower end MCUs.
The new reference code supports any of GainSpan's latest 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 consumption, high security through on-chip hardware crypto block, Wi-Fi direct and concurrent mode, where the device can act as a station and an access point concurrently.
The Renesas Synergy reference code is available to download for free through GainSpan’s support portal. Wi-Fi adapter boards are available through GainSpan authorized distributors.
