New Wi-Fi transceiver module assures in-device co-existence with LTE

Alpha Micro is now shipping u-blox’s ultra-compact LILY-W1 single band 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi transceiver module.

Providing 802.11n connectivity to a broad range of IoT applications with LTE connectivity, this transceiver with integrated antenna vastly simplifies the system integrator’s RF design efforts, taking care of Wi-Fi and LTE interference issues, as well as supporting Wi-Fi direct.

With a growing need for industrial and commercial equipment to become connected, this module not only enables Wi-Fi and LTE to coexist ‘in-device’ thanks to its bulk acoustic wave filter, but it allows the antennas of both transceivers to be sited close together.

The LILY-W1 measures just 10 x 14 mm, making it suitable for the most space-constrained of designs. With an extended temperature range from -40 to +85 degrees C, it is ideally suited to telematics control units, drive recorders or OBD readers, as well as logistics or point of sales equipment.

The module connects to the host processor, either through SDIO or USB, and operates concurrently in Client and Micro Access Point modes. Up to 8 clients can attach when functioning as a Micro Access Point. Royalty free Linux and Android drivers are provided as standard.
