Microchip Technology has introduced a highly integrated Trust&GO secured platform-enabled Wi-Fi microcontroller (MCU) module, WFI32E01PC for developing highly secured Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems. Pre-provisioned for cloud platforms, the WFI32E01PC is compliant with Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) specification.
The WFI32E01PC acts as an integrated modular solution providing industrial-grade MCU functionality, robust Wi-Fi connection, and hardware security and authentication. This all-in-one module improves Radio Frequency (RF) power and provides a higher level of security.
The new device has been designed with a premium PIC32 MCU core, rich peripherals, and a proven hardware security platform, this enables a powerful MCU core for the entire IIoT system. Apart from industrial applications, WFI32E01PC can also be used in home automation devices, computing, and consumer devices.
Designers can develop a large portfolio of solutions when they combine the WFI32E01 module with other components such as the KSZ8081 family of Ethernet PHYs, MCP2542WFD family of CAN transceivers, sensors, and radio technologies. Microchip also provides various types of software and hardware support along with the WFI32E01PC for reducing project risk and time-to-market.
The WFI32E01PC-I (54-pin SMD 24.5 x 20.5 x 2.5 mm) device is available in volume production in 10,000-unit quantities starting at $8.14.
