Note: This product has been changed with: WIFI-2
WIFI-1 is a very small (11x25mm) USB 2.0 IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi compliant module based on the RaLink RT5370N chip. This chip is fully supported on the lastest Kernel Linux versions (> 3.10).
It is a OEM module thought to be welded so it has pads instead of the standard USB plug. It works at 3.3V and can be configured also in Access Point mode. It is configured by default to be used with an external antenna but moving a component on the PCB it is possible to use the internal antenna.
Unfortunately we don't buid this module in our factory but we import it from China so we don't have any control about the time availability. In any case usually we have stocks of hundred parts.
This are the driver to enable on the Linux Kernel to support this module:
