Murata and Cypress Create Lowest-Power Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Combo Module

May 3, 2019 Alix Paultre

Murata in collaboration with Cypress Semiconductor developed a Type 1LV (CYW43012) solution, presented as the lowest power, small form factor Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module currently available. Based on the Cypress CYW43012 combo chipset, the small dual-band Wi-Fi 11a/b/g/n/ (11ac Friendly) +Bluetooth 5.0 module provides data transference rates up to 78Mbps on Wi-Fi and 3Mbps on Bluetooth. The Type 1LV supports a broad range of popular processors including PSoC6, i.MX RT, STM32, i.MX, and IP Camera platforms, as well as Linux and RTOS based applications.

The Type 1LV has an embedded Ipv6 network stack that can be used to keep the host processor in sleep mode while maintaining network connections. The module also supports BLE 2Mbps, LE Secure Connections, LE Privacy 1.2, and LE Data Packet Length Extension. The device operates in dual-band networks with enhanced security in Wi-Fi 5 networks. The 10.0 mm(L) x 7.2 mm(W) x 1.4 mm(H) module has a reference antenna design for FCC/IC certifications.
