February 18, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, is now stocking WF200 Wi-Fi transceivers from Silicon Labs. Providing a cost-effective option for high-volume applications, the WF200 transceivers support 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi while delivering the high performance and reliable connectivity necessary for increasing numbers of connected devices in home and commercial networks. The transceivers help simplify the design of power-sensitive, battery-operated Wi-Fi products including Internet of Things (IoT) devices, IP security cameras, point-of-sale (PoS) terminals, and consumer health care devices.

        Silicon Labs WF200 transceiver, available from Mouser Electronics, is a Wi-Fi network co-processor optimized for RF performance, low energy, and low cost. With exceptionally low transmit and receive power — 141 mA and 42 mA, respectively — and a link budget of 113 dBm, the device offers an ultra-low-power solution for long-range Wi-Fi transmissions. The transceiver features with two antenna ports, crystal oscillator, one time programmable (OTP) memory, and 13 GPIOs for interfacing with multi-protocol and RF front end module controls. For security-sensitive applications, the WF200S version provides secure boot and a secure and encrypted host interface.

        The small, 4 mm × 4 mm WF200 transceiver is pre-certified by the FCC, CE, IC, South Korea and Japan, helping to minimize development time, effort, and risk. The device is supported by the SLEXP8022 expansion kit, which is available with or without a Raspberry Pi single-board computer. The kit enables development on Silicon Labs’ microcontrollers and wireless microcontrollers, with embedded and Linux host drivers, onboard antennas, and a micro u.FL connector for external antennas.
