Avnet Introduce Wi-Fi Bluetooth Module to Simplify Wireless System Development

Avnet has introduced the new Murata 1DX Wi-Fi Bluetooth Pmod interface module for its customers in America and EMEA. This module has been developed to enable designers of wireless, embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) systems to add wireless capabilities to existing development kits.

Based on the ultra-small Murata Type 1DX module, the new AES-PMOD-MUR-1DX-G Pmod includes example guidelines for Avnet’s ZedBoard and UltraZed-EG Development Kits to demonstrate how to enable and use the wireless functions from PetaLinux. To facilitate Wi-Fi certification, the Type 1DX module complies with IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth Version 4.1 plus EDR, Power Class 1 (10dBm max) + BLE. Smaller than a dime, the certified module is designed to fit into small spaces and uses minimal external circuitry to overcome design challenges.

Avnet is currently offering Murata 1DX Wi-Fi Bluetooth Pmod reference designs for the Avnet ZedBoard and Avnet UltraZed-EG development kits. In addition, the new interface module is compatible with any development board that has access to a dual 2x6 Pmod connection, such as the Avnet PicoZed SOM + Carrier, Avnet MicroZed SOM + Carrier and Avnet Arty Artix-7 low-cost FPGA development board.
