RS9113 EVB The RS9113 n-Link®, Connect-io-n®, WiSeConnect® Modules Evaluation Board

Description

The RS9113 n-Link®, Connect-io-n®, WiSeConnect® module families are based on Redpine Signals' RS9113 ultra-low-power, single spatial stream, dual-band 802.11n + Bluetooth 4.0 + ZigBee Convergence SoC. The RS9113 modules integrate a multi-threaded MAC processor with integrated analog peripherals and support for digital peripherals, baseband digital signal processor, analog front-end, crystal oscillator, calibration OTP memory, dual-band RF transceiver, dual-band high-power amplifiers, baluns, diplexers, diversity switch, Quad-SPI Flash and even an on-board antenna in some cases thus providing a fully-integrated, plug-and-play solution for embedded wireless applications.

These modules come with a rich set of interfaces allowing maximum flexibility of integration into any Host Processor or Micro-controller system. The RS9113 Evaluation Kit(EVK) is a single platform that enables evaluation of both hosted (n-Link®), (Connect-io-n®) and embedded (WiSeConnect®) RS9113 modules. It can be interfaced to multiple Host Processors or Micro-controllers over interfaces like SDIO, USB, USB-CDC, SPI and UART. The EVK includes a sample driver, supplicant and example applications to test the following:

  • Wireless Functionality for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and ZigBee
  • Security modes
  • Throughputs
  • Power Consumption
  • Firmware Upgrade

Evaluation Board

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


There is a 2-pin inline jumper available for measuring the current being sourced by the module during different stages of operation. This is labeled as "MEASURE" on the PCB. The user may connect a power meter or an ammeter to this jumper to measure the current.

The USB drive is bootable. It is loaded with Fedora Core 18 OS with the OneBox-Mobile driver binaries included for evaluation of n-Link® modules on a standard PC/Laptop platform.

The USB drive also has the release package for the Connect-io-n® / WiSeConnect® modules which includes the firmware, documentation and reference projects for multiple platforms.

Redpine provides drivers for multiple OS's and MCU platforms for the n-Link® modules and also OS-less MCU platforms for WiSeConnect® modules. The software provided in this kit is to enable easy and quick evaluation on a PC. Please contact Redpine Signals' Sales (sales@redpinesignals.com) for availability of drivers for an OS and MCU of your choice.
