New Lantronix xPico(R) Wi-Fi Shield Delivers Wi-Fi Access Point and 802.11 b/g/n Connectivity for Popular Arduino(R) Platform

Available Now, the xPico Wi-Fi Shield Enables Users to Exchange Data Between Mobile Devices and Designs Based on Arduino via the xPico Wi-Fi Soft Access Point Interface and Smart Wi-Fi Software

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart IoT (Internet of Things) solutions, today announced that its xPico® Wi-Fi Shield is now shipping. The xPico Wi-Fi Shield supports simultaneous wireless LAN client connectivity and access point (AP) functionality. This makes it easy to securely connect to an Arduino® micro-computer using web-based tools and interactive applications on smartphones or tablets.

With the xPico Wi-Fi Shield, a wireless LAN driver is not required on the Arduino microcontroller to configure wireless connectivity. The xPico Wi-Fi Shield features connection management software and a web-based configuration interface that manage connectivity complexity on behalf of the application developer. The xPico Wi-Fi Shield allows engineers, designers, students and hobbyists to quickly add smart Wi-Fi solutions to Arduino designs, while offloading the burden of TCP/IP stack and networking applications to the included xPico Wi-Fi module.

"As a leader in providing smart, secure, and easy to deploy IoT solutions, we are excited to enhance our xPico Wi-Fi product family by supporting Arduino, one of the most pervasive development platforms today," said Kurt Busch, president and CEO of Lantronix. "First-time and advanced Arduino users alike can all benefit from the robust Wi-Fi connectivity features provided by the xPico Wi-Fi to enable quick and easy prototyping of mobile-ready designs."
