Wireless Modules Give Bluetooth, Wireless LAN Connectivity

Murata gave engineers attending the Fortronic RF/Wireless Forum in Oxford a first look at its LBEP series of wireless modules that provide wireless LAN, Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) connectivity. The modules are based around the WiLink 8.0 solutions from Texas Instruments.

The miniature modules measure just 8.8 x 9.9 x 1.3 mm and offer a complete low cost, highly integrated approach to providing wireless connectivity to a range of consumer, industrial and commercial applications. The modules include an integrated crystal and require no additional external components. Host connectivity, antenna and power are the only connections required. A slow clock input can be used to support a deep sleep mode.

The LBEP5CLWMC module provides both 2.4GHz (IEEE802.11 g/b/n and Bluetooth 4.0) and 5GHz (IEEE802.11a) connectivity. This module uses the TI WL1803/1833 combo connectivity solution. Host interfaces of SDIO are used for the wireless LAN and UART or PCM for Bluetooth.

The LBEP5CLWTC module provides 2.4GHz IEEE802.11b/g/n connectivity and uses the TI WL1831/1801 devices. The modules require a 3.0 to 4.2V DC supply and 1.8V DC for I/O.
