STMicroelectronics  SPWF04 - WiFi module with integrated antenna

Cloud-compatible certified Wi-Fi module accelerates IoT and M2M development

The SPWF04 is a small size, power-efficient Wi-Fi module, enabling standalone or serial-to-Wi-Fi operation modes. It supports advanced Internet-security features - including WPA2-Enterprise - and comes with a full-featured TCP/IP protocol stack with WebSocket support.

The SPWF04SA and the SPWF04SC integrate a Cortex-M4-based STM32 microcontroller and a powerful Wi-Fi transceiver, compliant with IEEE 802.11 b/g/n standard for the 2.4 GHz band. Both are certified FCC/IC and CE.

The modules are cloud compatible thanks to the complete protocol package, which includes application and security layers likes HTTP, MQTT, SMTP and WebSockets. They can operate in serial-to-Wi-Fi and standalone mode, with customer applications developed in the subsystem based on the MicroPython environment. The modules are configured around a single-chip 802.11 transceiver with integrated PA and comprehensive power management subsystem, and an STM32F4 microcontroller with UART/SPI interface and an extensive GPIO suite; they also incorporate timing clocks and a voltage regulator. With low power consumption and an ultra-compact (2.7 x 1.5 cm) footprint, the modules are ideal for fixed and mobile wireless applications, as well as challenging battery-operated applications.
