Modules ease the task of provisioning wireless connectivity to any IoT design

02-06-2016 | Murata | Subs & Systems

Murata have announced a series of two 2.4GHz IEEE802.11 b/g/n compliant wireless modules based around the TI CC3200 and TI CC3100 SimpleLink chipsets. These miniature modules, measuring 13.2mm x 21.45mm x 2.65mm significantly ease incorporating wireless internet connectivity to a host of embedded applications and especially internet of things designs. These low cost and ultra compact modules ease the task of provisioning wireless connectivity to any IoT design. Both modules, Type 1JP and Type1JQ, have SPI and UART interfaces, 16Mbit of Flash memory and a 40MHz clock. The module is constructed on a PCB with all matching components and a PCB antenna and the wireless transceiver and associated logic enclosed in a metal case. Peripheral interfaces include SPI, UART and numerous GPIO pins for attaching sensors and other devices. The Type 1JP module, part code LBWA1ZZ1JP-928 uses the TI CC3100 chipset and attaches to a host microcontroller to control communication. The Type 1JQ, part code LBWA1ZZ1JQ-929 uses the TI CC3200 chipset that features a Cortex-M4 microcontroller and 256kB RAM enabling it to operate as a complete “host-less” application. Both modules are pin-to-pin compatible and will remain compatible with later second-generation modules of Simplelink allowing customers to upgrade their designs without any hardware redesign. The modules are certified for FCC/IC and R&TTE tested for CE.
