Mouser and Inventek ink global pact
A global distribution agreement has been signed by Mouser Electronics and Inventek Systems, a supplier of full-service wireless and IoT connectivity focused on 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, combo platforms of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy, and GPS modular IoT platform solutions.
Inventek also supports all associated antenna requirements for the target radio of choice. Through the agreement, Mouser now stocks Inventek’s FCC-, CE‑, and IE-certified Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy combo modules and corresponding Inventek Systems Module ARduino Test(ISMART) evaluation boards.
The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy combo modules offer a quick, easy, and cost-effective method for adding wireless connectivity to Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The ISM4343-WBM-L151 embedded 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy system-in-package (SiP) module is based on a Cypress CYW4343 chip with Bluetooth 4.1 and an STMicroelectronics STM32F412 Arm-Cortex-M4 microcontroller with 1Mbyte of internal flash memory.
The ISM43340-M4G-L44 is an embedded 2.4GHz/5 GHz dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low energy, and Bluetooth 4.0 module based on the Broadcom BCM43340 quad–radio device with an integrated STM32F405 Arm Cortex-M4 microcontroller.
This platform is available with an integrated dual-band chip antenna or with an external U.FL antenna connector for use with the Inventek dual-band U.FL PCB antenna.
The ISM43340-L77 dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy radio-only SiP provides the highest level of integration, with 2.4GHz/5 GHz single-stream 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, MAC/baseband/radio, and Bluetooth 4.0. Based on a Broadcom BCM43340 quad-radio device.
This device is intended for embedded Linux and Android applications running on qualified host processors with an SDIO interface.
The modules are all supported by evaluation boards, also available from Mouser.
They feature an onboard Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module, UART, JTAG, expansion headers, status LEDs, user buttons, and more. The boards are compatible with the Arduino footprint, allowing developers to attach a variety of microcontrollers shields.
In addition, Inventek’s proprietary connectivity and cloud agent AT Command software, Inventek’s Wireless Interoperability Network (IWIN), provides a robust, user-friendly design environment to ensure maximum acceleration of design.
