The TI WiLink 8 module family enables manufacturers to easily add fully integrated 2.4- and 5-GHz versions of Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth 4.0 solutions to embedded applications. The new highly integrated module family offers high throughput and extended industrial temperature range with robust Wi-Fi and Bluetooth coexistence. WiLink 8 modules are perfect for power-optimized designs for home and building automation, smart energy, gateways, wireless audio, enterprise, wearables and many more industrial and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The WiLink 8 modules and software are compatible and pre-integrated with many processors including TI’s Sitara™ processors. As a module, less hardware and RF design is needed, making development easier and faster. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth software stacks and sample applications are provided, and the modules are FCC/IC/ETSI/
TI’s WiLink™ 8 module family enables FCC/IC/ETSI compliant and fully integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology solutions for the Internet of Things with high-through put and extended range. WiLink 8 solutions provide certified Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/BLE co-existence in a power-optimized design for home automation, smart energy, multimedia and security and safety applications.
