USB WiFi Modem Modules for OEM's

While OEM’s always need to do EMI testing on their finished products, devices that have Radicom Research’s WiFiHU2 modules installed inside do not need to do wireless agency approvals again” says Alex Tsau, VP of Operations at Radicom Research.

Radicom Research, a modem industry leader, announced today that the company’s WiFiHU2 series of USB WiFi modem modules has complete FCC15, IC and CE Certification. The WiFiHU2 modules provide easy WiFi connectivity through any processor-based device. With support for the latest wireless standards including 802.11b/g/n, USB2.0 connectivity and Access Point capability, the WiFiHU2 offers next generation WiFi transmission, all at a 1st-generation price.

“While OEM’s always need to do EMI testing on their finished products, devices that have Radicom Research’s WiFiHU2 modules installed inside do not need to do wireless agency approvals again” says Alex Tsau, VP of Operations at Radicom Research. “That helps OEM reduce their products to market time significantly and save thousands in agency fees.”

The WiFiHU2 features reliable transmissions, protocol stack, and integrated 2TX/2RX MIMO antenna technology for maximum over-the-air throughput of 300Mbps downstream and 300Mbps upstream (PHY rates using 40MHz bandwidth). Optimal analog transceiver performance is achieved through fast receiver Automatic Gain Control (AGC) with synchronous and asynchronous control loops among antennas, antenna diversity functions, and adaptive transmit power control functions.

Designed for industrial OEM use, the WiFiHU2 features low overall power consumption and extreme temperature capabilities (-40°C to +85°C), all in a small footprint. WEP/WPA/WPA2 security protocols ensure host protection and firmware/configuration parameters are stored in on-board NVRAM. Soft AP support transforms any WiFiHU2 device into a WiFi wireless access point, allowing nearby WiFi devices (smartphones, tablet devices, etc.) to connect to the Internet.

“As OEMs are our primary customers, Radicom focuses on including more features while maintaining an affordable price point -- extreme operating temperatures, Soft AP support, and other innovative features,” says Tsau. “We are a customer-first company, supporting OEM orders for these modules with fast manufacturing turnaround time to fulfill tight deadlines.”

Radicom’s WiFiHU2 series comes in two models: WiFiHU2-a and WiFiHU2-c. The WiFiHU2-a model enables a faster time-to-market with built-in dual-chip antennas, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming RF development. The WiFiHU2-c model offers OEM design flexibility for antenna location using two U.FL connectors to attach antenna cables and antennas. Bulk pricing and custom OEM specifications are available.
