Description

WiFi routines enable wireless communication over an IP network.

The IEEE 802.11 is a set of LAN protocols for implementing wireless local area network. The Network Component supports the WiFi interface modules that are operating in transparent mode. The WiFi interface module provides full Ethernet packet access. It's actually a Wireless Ethernet network where the Ethernet packets are exchanged in the same way as on wired networks. This brings the complete functionality of the Network Component to the Wireless network and bypass the limitations of the embedded WiFi sockets that usually come with the WiFi modules with their own TCP/IP stack on board.

For communication with the host MCU typically an SPI interface is required. Other interfaces such as UART, SDIO, I2C or RMII might be supported by the module as well.
