1 RTX4100 Wi-Fi Module (Energy Micro & Atheros)

2 QCOM Partnership Signed

3 RTX WiFi Modules Self-contained sensor platform for the “internet of things”
modules to address different markets Home automation / Home Security, Medical, Simple Sensors Industrial, Medical, Smart Appliances, Building Automation, Security Applications Larger applications (including MMI), Multi-input sensors Rapid Application Development support through embedded Virtual Machine / Eclipse IDE Disposable / Li-On battery support Days to years of operation time Solder-down and connectorized versions

4 RTX4100 Wi-Fi Module Key features Ultra Low Power WiFi (802.11 b/g/n)
Designed for years of battery life Very fast sleep to wake-up, and visa versa FCC Certified Antenna on-board, with external antenna connector option All WiFi-related firmware included on Module No ”drivers needed; Host is on-board UART, SPI, I2S interfaces Application framework, tools, and memory space for embedded user applications Multiple sensor interfaces and ADC/DAC ports Very small: only 18mm x 30mm, including antenna

LCD controller Antenna: Both In/Ext 256/16 kB App space High-End w. Connector SDK Based RTX4140 Connector Antenna: Both In/Ext 36/4 kB App space RTX414x-SDK Virtual Machine RTX4141-SDK SEP2.0 CoAP, Security RTX4100-EXT Solder On Antenna: External RTX4100-SDK CoAP Cloud Support RTX4100-SDK V2 Over-the-Air FWU Firewall access RTX4100-SDK V3 Virtual Machine RTX4102 Solder On Cost Reduction Mid-End Solder-On SDK Based RTX4100-IN Solder On Antenna: Internal Legend: Gray: Modules with committed mass production Yellow: Module demonstrators, based on RTX4100. Can easily be FCC approved and in MP Orange: SDK with CoLA / open application support Purple: Evaluation Kit (EVK) with UART / SPI interface for external MCU *or* simple sensor application (built by RTX). Mid-End: All modules for soldering, 36kB flash space / 4 kB RAM for application SDK support RTX4100-EXT:, external antennal RTX4100-IN: As RTX4100-EXT, but with internal antenna RTX4102: Placeholder for cost optimized RTX4100 module in future High-End: All modules with connector (for e.g. Japan), same footprint as RTX4100 RTX4140: Same MCU as RTX4100, but combination of internal / external antenna with u.FL connector with built-in switch RTX4141: With EFM32GG840F512, built-in LCD controller (8x20) and 256/16 kB application space for e.g SEP2.0 Alternatively: EFM32LG840F256 – TBD Low-End: All modules for soldering, internal antenna, only EVK support RTX4120-IN: As RTX4100-IN, but with smaller (non-open) EFM32 (perhaps QFN32 package – TBD) RTX4121-IN: Kingfisher (no Energy Micro MCU, but everything running inside Atheros SiP) RTX4120-IN Solder On Antenna: Internal RTX4120-EVK UART / SPI control or Small sensor app RTX4121-IN Solder On Antenna: Internal Cost / Size Reduction RTX4121-EVK UART / SPI control or small sensor applications Low End Solder-On EVK based Q3-2012 Q1-2013 Q3-2013 Module MP Availability Module Demonstrator SDK Software EVK Software (Host based)
