802.11b/g Wireless LAN Module / Device Server
TCP/IP (MC55 Form Factor Compatible)
Part Number: WISMC04BI
1.
General Description
EZURiO’s 802.11b/g TCP/IP Wireless LAN Module is a fully integrated and qualified wireless device
server, designed to make it simple to embed 802.11 connectivity. It has been designed to be pin
compatible with the footprint of Siemens MC55 GPRS modules, allowing designers to design one pcb to
support either GPRS or Wireless LAN connectivity.
Unlike other wireless modules all of the necessary drivers, protocol stack, security algorithms and
antenna are integrated. The module also includes an interpreter that can run scripts, providing a
complete wireless processing solution. It enables you to add wireless internet connectivity to almost
any device with a serial port. The module is designed for lowest cost of integration and ownership. It
is ideal for enabling M2M applications.
The module is a dual processor design, dedicating one processor to the 802.11b/g baseband with a
second powerful ARM7 processor, with 16MB of SRAM and 64MB of flash memory running the wireless
drivers, TCP/IP stack, web server and UWScript interpreter. Connection to the host device is via a high
speed 921,600 bps UART, with an additional twelve GPIO lines and two 10 bit ADCs. The interpreter
allows complex scripts to be run, allowing the WISM module to operate with zero host loading. It
means it is possible to use the module to wirelessly enable “dumb” sensors or UART ports.
The UWScripting wireless language developed by EZURiO is simple to use, but provides a rich
programming environment. Derived from BASIC, it allows powerful scripts to be written that combine
WLAN link management with TCP/IP socket control and machine interaction. A wide range of example
scripts are available which allow new applications to be rapidly developed. Scripts are downloaded into
the module via the UART and then either run under control from the host processor or autonomously at
power on.
The use of a scripting language allows the module to function in a wide variety of applications, from
simple cable replacement, to a more complex communications co-processor in which the module takes
over the management of the communications interface, or as a completely self-contained M2M solution
in which the module gathers information and reports it without host intervention.
An HTTP server is built into the module which allows user defined web pages to be served using
dynamic web page content supplied from a script. Information for the web page can be taken from the
UART stream or variables within the script. The use of scripts allows these to be pre-processed before
being displayed on the web page. Similarly, information can be sent to the script running on the
module using HTTP POST commands. This allows flexible user interaction with a module via a standard
web browser. With the addition of an appropriate script it allows the implementation of complete web
enabled controllers and monitoring devices.
The module includes a high sensitivity, high gain antenna which provides excellent range. Typical open
field performance yields an operating range of over 100 metres. A second 50 Ohm U.FL connection is
provided for an external antenna. This can be used in place of the internal antenna, or in conjunction
with the internal antenna to implement antenna diversity for improved receive performance.
Support is provided for low power modes that make the Wireless LAN module particularly applicable to
battery powered installations. It has been designed to ensure the best co-existence with other devices
operating within the same frequency spectrum and has hardware support designed into the module for

2 and 3-wire Bluetooth co-existence schemes. Direct connectivity to the EZURiO BISM Bluetooth
module is supported, as well as to other enabled Bluetooth devices.
The Wireless LAN module is supplied in a small pcb form factor (35.0mm x 32.6mm x 7.6mm). It
connects to a main pcb using a 50 way Hirose connector and is pin compatible with the Siemens MC55
GPRS range of modules. The module is Lead-free and RoHS compliant and supports an industrial
operational temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
The module has FCC modular certification, Industry Canada certification and CE approval. These
approvals allow users to simplify or bypass RF regulatory testing, enhancing time to market and
reducing approvals time and cost.
A low cost development system is available for fast product evaluation and development.

Functional Description
The Wireless LAN module is a self-contained product and requires only power to implement full
communication. The integrated, high performance antenna together with the RF and baseband circuitry
provides the Wireless LAN connectivity and the UART interface for a connection to a host system.
The complexity and flexibility of configuration are made simple for the design engineer by the
integration of an extremely comprehensive scripting language - UWScript. UWScript provides a simple
BASIC style language with a rich library of built-in functions that simplify connection of the module.
7.1
7.1.1
Interfaces
UART interface
Modem signal nomenclature can be a source of great confusion, particularly on devices which can be
configured in either DCE (Data Communications Equipment) or DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) format.
For the purpose of this data sheet all UART signals are defined on the assumption that the module is
being used as a conventional DCE. I.e it is behaving like a serial PSTN modem.
/TXD, /RXD, /RTS and /CTS form a conventional asynchronous serial data port with handshaking,
conforming to the ITU-T v.24 standard for DCE signalling. The interface is designed to operate correctly
when connected to other UART devices such as a 16550A. Note that the signalling levels are a nominal
0V and 3.0V and are inverted with respect to the signalling on an RS232 cable. The interface is
programmable over a variety of baud rates, with no, even or odd parity, one or two stop bits and
hardware flow control. Non-standard baud rates are supported – for more information please contact
EZURiO. Auto-bauding is not supported.
On power-up the UART defaults to 115200,n,8,1.
Note that there is no standardisation regarding the nomenclature of RX and TX across a DCE-DTE
interface. Some implementations show TX(DCE) connected to TX(DTE) to give naming consistency
across a cable, whereas other show TX driving RX to reflect logical port directions. Always check the
direction of ports on DCE and DTE.
In a DCE mode, where the module is being driven as a peripheral by a host processor application, the
UART signals should be connected according to the following scheme:
Port /RXD of the WISM transmits data to the application’s /RXD input.
Port /TXD of the WISM receives data from the application’s /TXD output.
Two-way hardware flow control is implemented by /RTS and /CTS. In DCE mode, /RTS is an OUTPUT
and is active low. /CTS is an INPUT and is active low. These signals operate according to normal
industry convention.
Some serial implementations link /CTS and /RTS to remove the need for handshaking. EZURiO does
not recommend linking /CTS and /RTS other than for testing and prototyping. If these pins are linked
and the host sends data at the point that the Wireless Module deasserts its /RTS signal, then there is a
significant risk that internal receive buffers will overflow which could lead to a loss of data. EZURiO
recommend that the correct /CTS to /RTS handshaking protocol be adhered to in order to ensure
proper operation.
DSH_WISMC04_1v2 WISM 50 pin TCP-IP Data Sheet.doc
© 2007-8 EZURiO Ltd
Page 11
The /DSR signal is an input to the module and is used to control the operation of the autorun script.
When the signal is de-asserted, the autorun script (if present) will be executed at power on. If the
/DSR signal is asserted then the autorun script is ignored.
The operation, meaning and direction of the /RING and /DCD signals is user programmable under script
control.
Note that the serial module output is at 3.0V CMOS logic levels. Level conversion must be added to
interface with an RS-232 level compliant interface.
7.1.2
Bluetooth Coexistence
Three pins are provided to allow implementation of Bluetooth coexistence schemes, when the 802.11
module is collocated with a Bluetooth radio. These connect directly between the basebands of the two
radios to ensure minimum interference.
Both 2-wire and 3-wire coexistence schemes can be
supported.
Coexistence requires that the Bluetooth radio meets at least version 1.2 of the Bluetooth standard and
supports Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH).

Firmware Features
8.1
Command Set
The Wireless LAN module has an integrated high level language called UWScript. UWScript provides
both the command set and a structured programming language for the module. This language is
described in detail in the UWScript Core Language and the UWScript Wireless LAN specific extension
documents. Accompanying these are release notes specific to each module and firmware release,
detailing the functions supported with each release.
8.2
Autorun
The interpreter in the WLAN module allows a script named autorun.uws to execute automatically at
power on. This functionality is enabled using the /DSR input pin. When the signal is de-asserted, the
autorun script will be executed at power on. If the /DSR signal is asserted then the autorun script is
ignored.
8.3
TCP/IP
The module includes a fully featured TCP/IP stack. The stack is RFC compliant for maximum
interoperability and is designed specifically for the embedded environment. The stack fully supports
UDP and TCP BSD sockets as well as providing underlying support infrastructure for the implementation
of IP Security.
8.4
DHCP
With the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol - DHCP - the process of configuring devices on a network
gets automated. With very little administrator intervention it is easy to accommodate new devices to a
network. Another big advantage of DHCP is that it allows for easy connection of mobile devices. DHCPenabled modules can move from one place to another with no disturbances. The TCP/IP stack
automatically gets an IP address and configuration suitable for the network segment it is currently
attached to.
8.5
HTTP Server
The module provides an integrated HTTP server which is fully integrated with the UWScript
environment allowing the user to rapidly develop web based solutions for machine reporting and
control. User web pages can be written using any webpage generation tool and downloaded into the
module. Dynamic web page content can be supplied from a script whilst control of the module and of
any attached machines can be achieved using HTTP POST commands which are again processed using
scripts.
8.6
Power Saving
The module supports the Wireless LAN IEEE power saving function. When this power saving mode is
enabled, the wireless LAN chipset goes to sleep when it is not actively receiving from the access point.
The chipset wakes up on a regular basis to receive broadcast messages from the AP or to transmit or
receive unicast messages. By using this technique the average power consumption of the chipset is
reduced from around 250mA in active receive mode to less than 35mA. The EZURiO module offers IEEE
power save operation in three different modes:
•
Powersave mode 1: The wireless LAN chipset operates in IEEE powersave mode and the
module microcontroller remains fully awake and ready to receive commands and data from
the host. This mode of power saving reduces the average consumption of the module to
<35mA.
•
Powersave mode 5: In this mode the module powers down the WLAN chipset, and awaits
commands from the host or from a script running on the module. Since the WLAN module is
powered down, the script cannot interact with the WLAN whilst in this mode. The average
current consumption in this mode is reduced to <25mA.
•
Powersave mode 6: In this mode the module powers down the WLAN chipset and places the
microcontroller into a low power standby mode. Entry into powersave 6 is under script
control. The module wakes up when a pre-defined PIO transition occurs. As the Wireless
DSH_WISMC04_1v2 WISM 50 pin TCP-IP Data Sheet.doc

Page 13
LAN module is powered down, the same restrictions on script operation as powersave 5
apply. The average current consumption in this mode is reduced to <4mA.
Powersave mode 1 requires beacons to be broadcast from an infrastructure access point. Therefore it
is not available when operating in ad-hoc (IBSS) mode.

Application Information
9.1
Antenna Location
The antenna used on the Wireless LAN module is designed to be largely immune from the effects of
proximity detuning. Normally, antennas operating at 2.4GHz are affected by their surroundings, so
that great care is needed in their placement and orientation.
The Wireless LAN module can be used in most locations and orientations and is only marginally affected
by the presence of a significant ground plane in close proximity.
The antenna distribution is close to isotropic, which means that the orientation of mounting has only a
limited effect on the overall range. However the optimum range is achieved when the two antennae
are directly facing each other

Page 14
The module should not be located in a sealed metal enclosure, as this will act as a Faraday cage and
severely attenuate the radio signal.
The antenna finish may tarnish as a result of environmental conditions and handling. This is a cosmetic
effect and does not affect the RF performance.
9.2
External Antenna
The approval of the module was performed using a 3dBi external antenna from RF Castle Electronics
(www.rfcastle.com/pdf/RF-3dbi%20DipoleA.pdf). The antenna was connected using a short cable to
convert from the U.FL connector on the module to a reverse SMA. The conditions of approval allow the
use of an alternative antenna, but require that the resulting effective radiated power does not exceed
that exhibited during the approvals testing.
To ensure that the approval is not affected, the TOTAL GAIN of the external antenna, including
insertion loss of the connectors and cable must be less than 3dBi. If a higher gain is employed, then
the pre-approved status of the module will be lost. Customers must also ensure that the frequency
characteristic of their antenna matches that of the antenna used for approval. As antennae are tuned
for their frequency band the use of a different antenna technology may result in a change in emissions
outside the 2.4GHz band. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that an external antenna does
not negate the approval.
U.FL connectors are supplied from a number of connector manufacturers. Details of Hirose’s mating
U.FL connectors are available at http://www.hirose.co.jp/cataloge_hp/e32119372.pdf
9.3
Power Supply Considerations
The power supply for the Module must be a single voltage source within the range of 3.3 V to 5.0 V. It
must be able to provide sufficient current for a transmit burst. This can rise to 550mA.
The Module includes on-board regulators to provide local 3.0V. This rail is accessible on pin 31 for
monitoring purposes only. Under no circumstances should this pin be used to source current.
Power (VCC_5V) is provided via the board-to-board connector Pins 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30. All VCC_5V
and GND pins should be connected to ensure that individual pin current capacities are not exceeded
during transmit current peaks.
9.4
Power-On-Reset
The Module is provided with an active high reset pin (Hirose 50way DF12C connector pin 40).
However, on the application of power, the Power On Reset circuit built into the Module will ensure that
the unit starts correctly. The external reset signal allows the module to be reset under software control
from the host. After a power on or reset operation, the module will de-assert the /RTS output and reassert it when it is ready to receive commands.
9.5
Operational Temperature
The Wireless LAN module is designed to meet an operational temperature of -40°C to +85°C in normal
operation where it is running in IEEE power save mode.
If the module is run in a mode that results in more frequent receive and transmit activity the operating
temperature will need to be derated to ensure that overall module power dissipation limits are not
exceeded. When the ambient temperature rises above 60°C the module should only be operated in
powersave mode 1 or higher.
The Wireless LAN module can operate in temperatures as low as -40°C, but the cold start minimum
temperature must not be below -25°C.

Board to board connector and stacking height
The WISM connects to a motherboard by means of a board-to-board connector that is supplied by
Hirose. Mating headers from Hirose are available in different stacking heights, allowing the spacing
between the WISM module and carrier pcb to be changed from 3.5mm to 5.0mm.

Mounting the Module onto the application platform
There are many ways to properly install the Module in the host device. An efficient approach is to
mount the PCB to a frame, plate, rack or chassis. Fasteners can be M1.8 or M2 screws plus suitable
washers, circuit board spacers, or customized screws, clamps, or brackets in 2.2mm diameter holes.
Note that care should be taken to ensure the head of the fixing does not interfere with the circuit.
Nylon fixings are recommended.
The antenna (Brown square component on top side of PCB) must not be influenced by any other PCBs,
components or by the housing of the host device. The proximity of the antenna to large metallic objects
can affect the range and performance of the system. Designers should carefully consider the location of
the Module and the type of enclosure material that is used.
To prevent mechanical damage, be careful not to force, bend or twist the Module. Be sure it is
positioned flat against the host device.

Fixing Pillars
EZURiO in conjunction with Richco has designed a mounting pillar for use with the Wireless LAN
Module. This allows the module to be securely held to a primary pcb using snap fit details. A variety of
heights are available to accommodate different variants of Hirose stacked connectors.
Pillars
supporting a 3.5mm stacked board height can be supplied by EZURiO. These and alternative spacings
can also be ordered directly from Richco.
Customer designs using these pillars should use 2.5mm diameter holes on a 1.6mm thick PCB.

10. Qualification
10.1 Qualification Process
The following safety precautions must be observed during all phases of the operation, usage, service or
repair of any application incorporating this Module. Manufacturers of the RF equipment are advised to
convey the following safety information to users and operating personnel and to incorporate these
guidelines into all manuals supplied with the product. Failure to comply with these precautions violates
safety standards of design, manufacture and intended use of the product. EZURiO assumes no liability
for customer failure to comply with these precautions.
10.2 Safety Information:
If the WLAN module is used in equipment that might be taken and operated on a commercial flight, the
following safety instructions, or similar warning should be added to the user manual.
“Switch off the Wireless device before boarding an aircraft. Make sure it cannot be switched on
inadvertently. The operation of wireless appliances in an aircraft is forbidden by many airlines to
prevent interference with communications systems.”
10.3 Certifications
10.3.1
FCC and Industry Canada Statements
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void
the user's authority to operate the equipment.
To inherit the modular approval, the antennas for this transmitter must be installed to provide a
separation distance of at least 20 cm from all persons and must not be co-located or operating in
conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
Co-location with other radio transmitting devices operating concurrently in the same band will require
additional testing and certification.
Designers should note the distinction that the FCC makes regarding portable and mobile devices.
Mobile devices are defined as products that are not used closer than 20cm to the human body, whereas
portable devices can be used closer that 20cm to the body. In the case where the WISM module is
used in a portable device, additional SAR testing must be performed on the complete product.
10.3.1.1
FCC Labelling requirement
If the FCC ID is not visible when the module is installed inside another device, then the outside of the
device into which the module is installed must also display a label referring to the enclosed module.
This exterior label can use wording such as the following: “Contains Transmitter Module FCC ID:
PI405W” or “Contains FCC ID: PI405W.” Any similar wording that expresses the same meaning may be
used.
10.3.2
National RF approvals
A list of the countries where the Module is approved will be provided by EZURiO as required. As a
minimum the product is listed in Europe, Scandinavia, Canada and USA. EZURiO assumes no liability
for customer failure to comply with national RF approval.
10.3.2.1
R&TTE Notification Requirement
The 2.4GHz band has some restrictions within the EU when the transmit power level is greater than
10mW (R&TTE Class 2). Because of this, it is designated within R&TTE as a non-harmonised band.
Such products must be notified to the appropriate Notified Body within each country where it is placed
on the market. EZURiO has notified the WISM module, but manufacturers incorporating it within their
products and intending to sell these within Europe have a responsibility to notify the appropriate
nominated body before commercial introduction. A list of nominated bodies is available at:
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/site/en/oj/2003/c_302/c_30220031212en00010414.pdf
