Module Integrates Wi-Fi 6 & Bluetooth, Invades Industrial IoT

Laird Connectivity’s Sterling 70 Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) module integrates concurrent dual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.1 to address industrial internet of things (IoT) connectivity applications. The module employs NXP Semiconductor’s 88W9098 wireless SoC, an industrial Wi-Fi 6 device adhering to the latest IEEE 802.11ax standard with a concurrent dual MAC Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth 5.1 architecture. Overall, the module delivers gigabit-level performance, exhibits high reliability, and provides solid security.

The Sterling 70 feature set ensures reliable connectivity in harsh and challenging RF and mechanical environments. The set includes 2X2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), simultaneous dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operation, dual-mode Bluetooth 5.1 radios, an integrated RF front end, a rugged solder-down, and M.2 2230 E-Key module form factors. Additionally, the company’s microprocessor, board support package, and kernel-neutral open-source Linux Backports driver and Yocto layer ensure compatibility with a wide range of Linux integrations including older i.MX board support packages.

The Sterling 70 carries FCC, ISED, EU, MIC, and RCM certifications and is suitable for use in harsh, industrial IoT applications. It supports the latest WPA3 security standards and is set for global certification.
