RS9113 FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified Wi-Fi EVB is based on Redpine Signals' RS9113 ultra-low-power Convergence chip. These modules offer Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). Read more


The RS9113 based FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated Wi-Fi modules based on Redpine Signals' RS9113 ultra-low-power Convergence SoC. These modules offer dual-band 1x1 802.11n wireless connectivity. They are high performance, long range and ultra-low power modules and include a multi-threaded MAC processor called ThreadArch®, digital and analog peripheral interfaces, baseband digital signal processor, calibration OTP memory, dual-band RF transceiver, dual-band high-power amplifiers, baluns, diplexers, diversity switch and Quad-SPI flash.

The module's embedded firmware includes the WLAN protocol stack along with support for WPA/WPA2-PSK and WPA/WPA2-Enterprise (EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, EAP-PEAP) ecurity algorithms. It is a fully-integrated solution for secure embedded low-end wireless applications. The modules can be connected to 8/16/32-bit host processors through SPI, UART, USB and USB-CDC interfaces.


  • *FIPS 140-2 Level 1 Certification for modules with and without antenna
  • FIPS Approved and non-FIPS Approved modes of operation
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n operation over 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands
  • Two module variants : with and without integrated antenna
  • Ultra low power operation with power save modes
  • Module supports single supply 3.0 to 3.6 V operation

Evaluation Board

The Evaluation Board is designed to configure the module to use the inter-face on which power supply is detected. This is indicated through the LEDs mounted on the board.
