What are some recommendations on an ideal WiFi to Serial bridge? My ideal qualities would be:
- Simple connectivity, SPI or Serial
- Reasonable fast speed, at least 1mbit/sec ideally (though probably wouldn't always need that fast)
- Inexpensive, I'm thinking under $50
- Low power — it should use at most 100mA, if we could get it even lower like say 20 or 30ma, even better.
- Built-in protocol stack — I want it to handle the WiFi protocol, along with DHCP, TCP/IP, DNS, etc, so that all I have to do is tell it what IP/port to connect to, and then handle the data myself.
- If at all possible, 5V-tolerant I/O's…to make it easy to interface to our old-school microcontrollers.
So far I've found:
Anyone have any experience with other possibilities?
