PremierWave EN

Embedded Linux Wireless System on Module

A Feature Rich, Deployment Ready Wi-Fi Networking System on Module

PremierWave EN is a high performance Industrial ready ARM 9 system on module suitable for IOT applications. It is offered as a small removable module with integrated Flash, RAM and dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n capabilities. The PremierWave EN is an ideal solution for embedded applications that require simple development, ease of use and a proven robust high performing solution with network connectivity. Developers can save time and reduce the complexity of developing subsystems with high speed memory, Ethernet and Wi-Fi networking that can be easily integrated into real products.


Our company has a line of legacy industrial controllers that they would like to freshen up and add dual band WiFi to.  We need Enterprise security too.  I’m really limited to what I can change in the firmware without forcing our customers through an entire qualification cycle.  We are going to pull out the old analog modem module and I wondered if there might be a way to talk to a WiFi module using the same AT command set.  The Lantronix PremierWave matches our needs perfectly.  It has a mode called “modem emulation” that understands all the old modem commands like +++ and ATDT.  Instead of giving it a phone number, we give it an IP address.  I didn’t have to change anything in our code!  The PremierWave EN also does Dualband WiFi and this is important in the industrial applications where they often put equipment up on the 5GHz band.

Overview for PremierWave EN

The Power of Linux and Python

All PremierWave® EN System-On-Modules come preloaded with Full Embedded Linux and U-Boot making it simple and easy to add custom software and applications. Full source code of the Linux BSP is provided, along with a Linux cross-development environment. The PremierWave™ EN can use GNU C/C++ tool chain for Linux and Windows or similar and supports third-party SDK.

PremierWave EN supports developers using the Python programming language to create scalable and secure M2M applications. In addition to connecting to the cloud, developers can leverage security, network connectivity, protocol handling and device management capabilities of the underlying ruggedized Lantronix System on Module product offering.


The PremierWave EN is a 400MHz ARM9 processor with up to 64Mbyte of SDRAM and up to 256Mbyte of NAND Flash. Included is a Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g/n with an on-board antenna and option for external antennas and diversity, two serial interfaces (up to 921 kbps), USB 2.0 Full speed Host/Device Port, SPI and I2C interfaces. PremierWave EN provides the flexibility to locate the antenna and connector based on design requirements. PremierWave EN also includes a user-controlled, intelligent power management option to shut down the radio during periods of inactivity, minimizing current power consumption.

Bulletproof Security

With an unmatched portfolio of security technologies, PremierWave EN goes far beyond compliance with the popular 802.11i, WPA and WPA2 wireless security specifications. It ensures data integrity and privacy for highly sensitive requirements such as medical or financial applications.

  • IEEE 802.11i-compliant radio with AES-CCMP and TKIP encryption
  • PSK and complete suite of 802.1x Extensible Authentication
  • Protocols (EAP) including EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, PEAP, and EAP-PEAP
  • End-to-end SSL TLS and SSH tunneling

Ready to Go Wireless Applications

Scan, Gather and Report Radio Parameters with an unmatched portfolio of security technologies, PremierWave EN scans current AP and Received Signal Strength radio parameters, as well as authentication and negotiated encryption types for the current association, and displays them on a web page. This enables remote technicians to diagnose problems as they occur and troubleshoot over any IP network without a service call, reducing support costs and unnecessary visits

Lantronix SmartRoam to Enable Seamless Mobile Connectivity with exclusive SmartRoam technology, PremierWave EN continuously tracks the signal strength of access points (AP) within range. If necessary, pre-authentication and caching enables smooth and automatic transition to an access point with a stronger signal. This enhances mobility within a building, warehouse or across a campus network with less time spent re-authenticating due to a lost connection or re-associating to a stronger signal.
