Announcing IRIS, an 802.11 b/g/n networking solution on a chip, EBV Elektronik has added the EBVchip, created with DeviceDrive, a cloud-on-chip developer.

It targets applications like smart power plugs, home automation, mesh network gateway, industrial wireless control, sensor networks, wearable electronics, Wi-Fi location-aware devices, security ID tags and WiFi position system beacons.

It allows automatic connection to the cloud and mobile apps, without network configuration. An API based on JavaScript object notation (JSON) through UART (universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter) makes passing object parameters simple. Iris is worldwide certified and supports OTA (over the air) upgrades of module and client firmware. The shielded, small size module has an embedded on-board PCB-antenna with a gain of 2dBi.

Iris provides design capabilities for low power, which makes it very applicable for battery-operated applications. To simplify the design process, a mobile software development kit for multiple platforms, such as iOS and Android is also available. An evaluation kit is available.
