This USB WiFi dongle is based on the Realtek RTL8192CU chip. It supports IEEE 802.11b/g/n WiFi networks and provides transfer speeds at up to 300Mbps — both receiving and transmitting. This is achieved via MIMO technology that permits two signal streams simultaneously.
Its "3D" antenna also provides for greater range than the typical PCB-trace antenna found on most WiFi dongles. It supports 64/128-bit WEP and WPA2 wireless security modes, and WPS setup. It can be used either as an end device connecting to a WiFi network or as an Access Point to set up your own WiFi hotspot.
Embedded systems that can use this dongle include BeagleBone Black, Raspberry Pi B/B+, RIoTboard, MarS Board, SABRE Lite, SAMA5D3 Xplained, HummingBoard, Cubieboard, SBC335x-B1A, SBC335x-B2A, SBC6Q5E, etc.
Of course, it works on PCs too. Drivers are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
