u-blox presents combined Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC modules for easy implementation of latest wireless standards in the vehicle
The EMMY-W1 series combines high speed Wi-Fi 802.11ac/a/b/g/n and dual-mode Bluetooth v4.1 (Bluetooth Smart Ready). In addition it offers user-friendly near field communication (NFC) pairing. The dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz), dual-mode Bluetooth ensures the widest possible connectivity with any mobile device. One module variant integrates an LTE co-location filter that permits the device's Wi-Fi antenna to be positioned close to an LTE cellular radio antenna, for example in the same 'shark fin' antenna housing, enabling external Wi-Fi connectivity.
EMMY-W1 modules, measuring 13.8 mm x 19.8 mm x 2.5 mm, are qualified to VW 80000/ISO 16750-4, and have European, US, and Canadian certifications. They feature best-in-class radio performance and operate from -40 °C to +85 °C ambient.
Engineering samples and development kits are available now. The modules will be in volume production in Q3 2015.
