GainSpan Corp., San Jose, CA, has added Limited Access Point (Limited-AP) capability to its embedded WiFi modules, allowing products that contain embedded WiFi modules to serve as an instant access point allowing common consumer wireless devices to establish a connection using WiFi. Limited-AP capability is supported by the company's complete line of low-power embedded WiFi modules, including the GS1500M that provides 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity with speeds up to 72 Mbps and the GS1011M that offers 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity with speeds up to 11 Mbps.
