"Don't I need LINUX to add Wi-Fi to my embedded design?"
Leveraging a fully integrated WLAN module for embedded Wi-Fi product design
Embedded system designers face many challenges when selecting the right components to meet functional, budgetary, and regulatory requirements, especially when it involves wireless technologies. Until recently, adding Wi-Fi meant learning and implementing complex software subsystems just to provide a seemingly simple wireless network connection. This typically would involve a deep dive into embedded operating systems such as Linux, complex development environments to compile Wi-Fi drivers, rebuilding kernels, and countless hours spent wrestling with tools unrelated to your actual product functionality.
With the latest System-on-Chip (SoC) technologies, the complexity of Wi-Fi has been pushed into the wireless module, allowing developers to focus on their application data instead of designing a platform to support Wi-Fi.
