    WIPIWIPI is a high performance, cost effective WLAN USB dongle which easily connects your development platforms to a Wi-Fi local area network. WIPI is an 802.11n compliant USB WLAN adaptor supporting data rates of up to 150 Mbps and WPA/WPA2-PSK Security. It uses Cisco CleanAir channel detection technology to minimize interference from non-802.11 modulated sources. WIPI also supports wireless roaming, ensuring a more consistent wireless connection to a wireless access point.

     

    Currently WIPIWIPI can be used with multiple development platforms, such as Raspberry Pi SBCRaspberry Pi SBC, RIoTboard SBCRIoTboard SBC, Atmel SAMA5D3 Xplained development platformSAMA5D3 Xplained development platform, Beaglebone Black SBCBeaglebone Black SBC, SABRE LiteSABRE Lite and Mars BoardMars Boarddevelopment platfrom,.
