wifi chip module

hi

I´m looking for a wifi chipset or module to integrate with embedded development. The design features an ARM and I need some computers to connect through the (PA), but they have not found a module that has SPI, but the maximum speed is 3Mb. Does anyone know of a chipset or module for use in my designs? Linux compatible?. thanks.

Greetings

Re: wifi chip module

Hi

I have not found a chipset to connect to a wireless network, compatible with uClinux (arm). I found only manufacturers with big orders, but I found chipset easy to locate in small units. Does anyone have any experience?. Thanks.

Regards

You're looking for a WiFi module with a SPI interface?

How about RN-171 or RN-131 from Roving Networks?

RN-171

RN-131

I believe their throughput is 4Mb/s using SPI.

Sparkfun has a demo board, although I'm not sure it is the same model RN-131, check the specs out:

SPARKFUN WiFly GSX DEMO

There are some others available, but these should get you started in the right direction.
