Mouser now stocks the new Laird Connectivity Sterling-LWB5+ module. The modules provide Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 communications to next-generation IoT devices, including battery-powered medical devices, rugged handheld devices, industrial IoT sensors, and other connectivity solutions.

The modules are powered by the Infineon CYW4373E solution, maintaining reliable and secure performance in industrial IoT settings. Excellent for harsh environments, the modules possess a solder-down module form factor to lessen the effects of vibration and impacts and an industrial temperature rating of -40C to 85C. The device range offers for several small-form-factor PCB modules with choices for integrated and pre-certified external antennas, as well as two M.2 form factor solutions for improved host integration flexibility for designers’ Linux platforms.

For optimum integration, the company has also created and certified a variety of internal and external antennas, with a reverse polarity SMA cable assembly, particularly for the modules. The antenna range comprises the internal FlexPIFA, Nanoblade and Mini Nanoblade Flex antennas and an external dipole antenna.

The modules support the newest WPA3 security standards, and the devices’ integrated power amplifier and LNA offer reliable connectivity even in testing RF environments. The devices are offered in multiple antenna options and are certified to FCC, IC, CE, MIC, AS/NZ and Bluetooth SIG certification.
