Released in November 2018, the new version of the GC Enhanced xPico provides the following new features:

  • Multiple TCP connections (up to 4) or a mixture of TCP and UDP access to the serial port
  • Serial Multiplexer (Mux) protocol support (adopted from the xPico-Wifi) allows the host processor to manage and transfer data on multiple connections
  • Web API for web to serial port access from HTML and java script (adopted from the xPico-Wifi)
  • Additional DNS support to address the remote host with a domain name or fixed IP address
  • Email authentication with password support


Building on the strengths of the xPico - Serial to Ethernet EDS the Grid Connect Enhanced firmware version adds configuration flexibility and powerful email triggers to a networked serial device design. The GC Enhanced firmware xPico supports multiple TCP connections, DNS addressing, and allows for mixed TCP and UDP access to the serial port. Add strong and secure remote notification capabilities with the new email serial trigger capabilities.

The GC Enhanced xPico module is a small and cost effective solution for adding networking to any device with a serial interface. Powered by a DSTini-EX enhanced 16-bit x86 class processor, this enhanced xPico is a compact chip-sized solution (24mm x 16.5mm) offering a complete device server application with

  • full IP stack,
  • 256-bit AES encryption,
  • web server, and
  • remote access.


The GC Enhanced xPico module attaches to a device via a 40-pin board-to-board SMT connector and includes 8 software selectable programmable I/O pins. The module is designed to support one serial port with data rates up to 921 Kbps. Additionally, an extended temperature range of -40° to + 85°C makes the GC Enhanced xPico ideal for a wide range of environmental applications. With virtually no need to write additional software, this module can reduce development costs and shorten time to market while adding robust networking capabilities to a serial device.
