The Type 1XA WLAN and Bluetooth-enabled combo module from Murata is now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.

The module supports Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac 2x2 MIMO RSDB with a PHY data rate up to 866 Mbps and Bluetooth 5.2 BR/EDR/LE PHY data rate up to 3 Mbps.

The WLAN section supports PCIe v3.0 Gen 1 interfaces while the Bluetooth section supports high-speed, four-wire UART interfaces and PCM for audio data.

This compact, high-performance module is based on the Cypress CYW54591 combo chipset, which offers enhanced collaborative coexistence hardware mechanisms and algorithms to optimise the WLAN and Bluetooth collaboration.

In IEEE 802.11ac mode, the WLAN operation supports rates of MCS0 to MCS9 (up to 256 QAM) in 20 MHz, 40 MHz, and 80 MHz channels for data rates up to 866 Mbps. Real Simultaneous Dual Band (RSDB) technology enables two unique data streams to run at full throughput simultaneously.

Applications for the module include industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), smart homes, audio/video/voice, gateways, and industrial systems.
