The Sterling LWB5+ from Laird Connectivity is a 2.4/5 GHz Dual Mode WLAN (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 Module that is designed for next-gen wireless IoT applications. It delivers data rates of up to 433.3 Mbps (WLAN) and 3 Mbps (Bluetooth).
The LWB5+ module is based on the Cypress CYW4373EUBGT 802.11ac/a/b/g/n chipset and has integrated PA (power amplifier), LNA (Low Noise Amplifier), transmit/receive RF paths including a diplexer, switches, reference crystal oscillator, power management units (PMU) and an optional ceramic chip antenna, MHF4 RF connector, or RF trace pad. The dual 802.11ac and Bluetooth radio includes full digital MAC and baseband engines that handle all 802.11 CCK/OFDM 2.4/5GHz and Bluetooth 5.2 (Basic Rate, Enhanced Data Rate, and Bluetooth Low Energy) baseband and protocol processing. It requires a DC supply of 3.2-4.8 V and can be controlled via SDIO, UART, USB 2.0 and HCI interfaces. The module is available in an LGA package that measures 17 x 12 x 2.13 mm with an antenna interface.
