Joe, Compared to the options just a few months ago for embedded WiFi integration, this is as good as something you'd buy at Home Depot!

Its about time! This new generation of very small stand-alone MCM's (Red Pines also makes one) makes it much easier to incorporate WiFi into embedded devices. Previously, we had to either deal with Linux (MAJOR annoyance!!!) or use large and bulky devices. I look forward to using this module in combination with a Stellaris micro controller.

I love how TI calls this "off-the-shelf". Hello, it's still an ASIC! Not like I'm going to go to Home Depot and buy a couple to network my fridge... :-)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
