We are proud to introduce our newest Wi-Fi module series, the Sterling 70. Powered by the NXP 88W9098 wireless SOC, the Sterling 70 series is the industry’s first Wi-Fi 6 solution based on the latest IEEE 802.11ax standard with an innovative concurrent dual MAC Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth 5.1 architecture.

Together with NXP, we made purposeful design considerations to the Sterling 70 series of modules which is specifically developed for industrial IoT applications where RF connectivity can be challenging. As a fully certified and highly integrated Wi-Fi 6 module, it simplifies customer BOM, reduces certification costs, and improves time to market.
