Measuring just 26x18x3mm and with an extremely low power consumption of 38mA in receive mode and 4uA in sleep mode, it boasts a comprehensive feature set, including a 32 bit SPARC processor, TCP/IP stack, 10 GPIO lines, 8 analog sensor interfaces and RTC.

In addition to the enhanced power management features over the earlier RN131, the module is also preloaded with firmware to simplify integration and minimise the WiFi development of an application.
