Overview

2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Smart Ready Multi-Standard Module

The Sterling-LWB™ 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Smart Ready Multi-Standard Module provides your customers with more options, more certifications and a greater variety of antenna options, which altogether provides greater flexibility to meet the challenging requirements of many wireless designs. This certified module is based upon the Cypress (formerly Broadcom) CYW4343W chipset, and supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, BT 2.1+EDR, and BLE 4.2 wireless connectivity.  The module comes in three configurations to best address specific applications, and features an industrial temperature rating (-40° to +85° C) and an industry-leading breadth of certifications and antenna options.

Sterling-LWB Development Kit with SD Card Form Factor

The Sterling-LWB development kit features a convenient SD Card form factor for convenience compatibility with a variety of Microprocessor development platforms, such as NXP/Freescale i.MX6. Full driver support for Linux, along with step-by-step user guides, dramatically simplifies adding a powerful Wi-Fi module to your Linux-based development project. The Dev Kit for the Sterling-LWB module with u.FL connector also a FlexPIFA™ Antenna for your evaluation and development efforts

The Sterling-LWB driver supports a range of Linux kernel versions through the backports package and has been validated to work with a number of i.mx6 development platforms.

Sterling-LWB for WICED Carrier Board

Development is fast and easy with a carrier board that plugs directly into virtually any STM32F4xx Discovery Kit. Design implementation is straight-forward as well, as source CAD files make an outstanding starting point.

You can now leverage the high-performance Sterling-LWB™ module for embedded applications as well! The Sterling-LWB for WICEDTM reference platform provides a very simple and fast way to add both Wi-Fi and BLE v4.2 connectivity to your microcontroller-based design utilizing the power of Cypress’ robust WICEDTM software development kit. The low cost, pre-certified Sterling-LWB is now validated with the STM32F411 MCU and can be migrated to other popular MCU’s with an SDIO interface, giving you unmatched speed in adding Wi-Fi and BLE to your application. In addition to the carrier board hardware, this comprehensive reference platform features extensive documentation and software examples, TiWiConnect™ cloud connectivity and ModuleLink™ mobile app for easy development and integration.
