New Product in stock MOD-WIFI-AR9271 libre drivers and firmware WiFi dongle

MOD-WIFI-AR9271-2

AR9721 chipset is the only one on the market with completely open source linux drivers and firmware, this make it WiFi chipset of choice for people who respect their freedom.

We have MOD-WIFI-AR9721-ANT for quite some time and it’s very popular item, but the 200mm antenna make it not quite small. Now we add to our web shop the version without external antenna. It’s with 85 x 25 x 10 mm dimension and have same working distance as the external antenna version.

New product soon to be in stock: MOD-WIFI-AR9271-ANT WiFi USB dongle with Open Source Firmware and Linux drivers

MOD-WIFI-AR9271-ANT-1

AR9271 chipset is the only one with Open Source Firmware and Linux drivers. It has build in Kernel support since Kernel 2.6.35 so if you want to run GNU/Linux clean of non-free binary blobs with unknown content this is the device for you. It will work with your desktop PC, laptop, or SBC like OLinuXino and Raspberry Pi etc.

MOD-WIFI-AR9271-ANT samples are tested and proven to work with all our OLinuXinos and have excellent WiFi reception due to the huge antenna they came with. We have pending order and they will be in stock very soon.

DuinoMite is now on GitHub

DuinoMite software development was suffering from missing version control since we started it. There are 4 developers who contributed to the project but there was quite lack of coordination as we put all stuff on Ken’s shoulders.

Ken’s release from February 16th, 2012 was with few minor bugs on the UART configurations, but being busy he had no time to fix these. This weekend I had some free time after we finish the iMX233-OLinuXino design and took a look at the sources and fixed few port definition and UART initialization mistakes.

Now the source is on GitHub https://github.com/OLIMEX/DuinoMite

I put there also the latest Hardware CAD files and from now on the latest revisions will be there.
