what we do


Dragino HE is a minimal system which installed with OpenWrt Linux system and support 150M 2.4G WiFi. It is compatible with 802.11b/g/n. HE has rich interface such as Ethernet, USB, UART and plenty of GPIOs. HE use small outline package, it is used widely in WiFi solutions.


HÉ means “core” in Chinese. Intend of HÉ module is to be used as the core of the IoT, WiFi solution.


HE is based on Open Source OpenWrt system. User is free to modify the software for their applications.
