Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley 2010, SAN JOSE, USA: Wi2Wi Corp., a leader in wireless SiPs (System-in-a-Package), modules, and subsystem solutions for consumer and business embedded markets worldwide, with a focus on 802.11 (Wi-Fi), Bluetooth, and GPS introduces W2CBW009Di, a WiFi and Bluetooth module, the first of its industrial temperature product family, based on market proven Marvell 88W8688 WLAN chipset.
This module provides IEEE WiFi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, with a very small footprint, and over a wide range of industrial temperature, of -40C to +85C. Measuring only 16mm x 16mm x 2.1mm, the W2CBW009Di addresses the need for a cost-effective and high-performance WLAN-BT module in particular for major vertical markets worldwide.
This product is targeted for key market segments including industrial, defense, home infrastructure, medical, test equipment and consumer applications. W2CBW009Di significantly simplifies integration of WiFi and Bluetooth into the customers’ products for such applications. It minimizes the RF-know-how requirements, supports all main processors (including Intel, Marvell, TI, Freescale, RMI, Samsung), and comes with FCC certification.
“Our industrial-temperature product family addresses broad applications for the major vertical market segments,” Wi2Wi’s CEO Dr. Reza Ahy notes. “Our newly introduced W2CBW009Di is the first of these products, being released into mass-production, after successful & extensive evaluations by our demanding lead customers. Wi2Wi is uniquely positioned with a complete portfolio of industrial-temperature products including WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.”
“Wi2Wi’s industrial temperature product portfolio is a great match for many of the vertical segments that Avnet Memec serves – such as industrial, medical, test equipment and the military. WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS are seeing increased adoption in these segments, providing the necessary communication functions in our customers’ applications, and Wi2Wi provide a very integrated, high performance and cost-effective solution,” said Phil Sansone, senior vice president, Avnet Memec.
Wi2Wi just completed another record performance quarter ending in March 2010, with a large number of design wins in the Americas, Asia, and EMEA markets.
