I am evaluating my options for low power embedded wifi modules for an upcoming project, and I was wondering whether the hivemind has had any experience with any of the commercially available ones? The main requirements for me are that it be as low power as possible, and that it has a serial interface (UART/SPI/I2C). I am not considering standalone radio modules.
I am considering:
- Gainspan GS1500M
- Microchip MRF24WB0Mx
- Redpine Signals RS9110-N-11-02
- Taiyo Yuden WYSBMVGX4
- connectBlue OWL211a
If you have used any of these modules, I would welcome your impressions of them. Also, I would greatly appreciate suggestions for other chipsets or any other related advice.
