The WPEB-265AXI (BT) from SparkLAN is a Wi-Fi 6 (WLAN 802.11.ax/ac/a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 5.0 Combo module that allows efficient allocation of low data-rate connections, improves the battery life of IoT sensors, and extends the range of Wi-Fi signals.
The 802.11ax (WiFi 6) half mini PCIe module can support Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to increase channel capacity when simultaneously servicing multiple devices using the same frequency chunks. By implementing the new 802.11ax standard with its unique features such as OFDMA, 1024QAM, Target Wake Time (TWT), and spatial reuse, the module enables smooth streaming of high-resolution videos, fewer dropped connections, and faster connections farther away from the router and in dense environments.
Bluetooth 5.0 provides doubles data rates speed for faster transmissions thereby reducing the overall power consumption.
The module requires a DC supply of 3.3 V and can be controlled via PCIe, UART, USB, and GPIO interfaces. It supports Linux and Android drivers followed by security encryption standards such as 64/128-bits WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA3, 802.1x. The module measures 29.85 x 26.65 x 2.8 mm with 2 x IPEX MHF1 antenna connectors. It is ideal for medical devices, security systems, industrial PC, point of sale, digital signs, STB, embedded / tablet PCs, smart devices, thin client devices, gaming machines, and tablets applications.
