Introduction

RAK439 is an ultra-low-power, low-cost module that fully supports of major encryption modes as well as WAPI encryption mode, a Wi-Fi ® module with SPI interface that supports 802.11b/g/n protocol. The module internally integrates RF station, balun, RF switch, crystal oscillator and power switch circuit, enabling fast hardware design with very little circuits for peripherals. Plus, the module has built-in IPEX external antenna base, also leads antenna foot that allows on-board antenna design。

RAK439 SDK software library has encapsulation for WIFI module interface driver, providing a platform-specific driver function, so that customers can easily integrate the module into their main platform, greatly shorten the evaluation cycle. Software library also provides a network-related API; user can quickly complete the module's network configuration and connection. Socket section uses BSD socket type operation, easy to operate.

Driver Library supports both NOS operation and OS operation; user can choose either according to actual operation flexibility.
