The new Overo STORM-P COMs, powered by Texas Instruments DaVinci DM3730 and Sitara AM3703 application processors, enhance wireless communications on the Overo COMs series and are compatible with the full line of Overo expansion boards offered by Gumstix. The Overo STORM-P COMs' single u.fl antenna requires less space and offers a significant price reduction as compared to their original Overo STORM counterparts.

"The addition of the Wi2Wi W2CBW0015 wireless module to the Overo series enhances connectivity by adding access point mode," said W. Gordon Kruberg, M.D., president and CEO of Gumstix. "Overo STORM-P COMs offer exceptional value to users, with faster wireless communications, further expanding the potential for innovative applications."

"At Wi2Wi, we strive to help our users move to market as quickly as possible with their WiFi-connected devices," said Brad Frey, Wi2Wi's Director of Sales for the Americas. "We believe Gumstix' offerings enable Wi2Wi's technology, helping customers achieve their product goals. We are thrilled that Gumstix will continue to work with Wi2Wi by moving to our next generation WiFi device."
