Sterling-LWB5 Dual-Band WiFi Module with Bluetooth 4.2

Recommended for New Design (RND)

Overview

Dual-Band 802.11ac WiFi + Bluetooth v4.2 Combo Module

The Sterling-LWB5 dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® Smart, and Bluetooth® Smart Ready module offers significant value to developers by providing an unmatched breadth of options, certifications, and antenna options, which altogether provide greater flexibility to meet the challenging requirements of many wireless designs. This certified module is based on the Cypress (formerly Broadcom) CYW43353 chipset to create one of the very first commercially available solutions that offers IEEE 802.11ac capabilities for ultra-high data rate 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity, while also featuring classic Bluetooth and BLE connectivity as well. The module comes in three configurations to best address specific applications, each boasting an industrial temperature rating (-40° to +85° C) and an industry-leading range of certifications and antenna options.
