u-blox launches low-cost Wi-Fi / Bluetooth “Internet of Things” module

Rugged ODIN-W160 supports dual-band Wi-Fi & dual-mode Bluetooth for reliable connectivity.

Swiss u-blox, a global leader in wireless and positioning semiconductors and modules, announces the ODIN-W160, a rugged multiradio module for demanding industrial, vehicle, medical, and security applications.

Herbert Blaser, VP of Short Range Radio at u-blox, says:

“u-blox’ compact ODIN-W160 module is perfect for small sensor applications in rugged environments, where faultless operation 24/7 is a requirement. With this module, u‑blox customers can shorten their product development cycle significantly by integrating a robust, certified communication solution in their IoT applications.”

u-blox ODIN-W160 IoT moduleODIN-W160 supports dual-band Wi-Fi 2.4/5GHz (U-NII bands 1, 2, 2e, 3), as well as dual-mode Bluetooth v4.0, which includes Bluetooth low energy and Classic Bluetooth (Bluetooth “Smart Ready”).

The host-based module is designed for a long life cycle, which makes it ideal for infrastructure, building, and automotive implementations. In addition, it extends battery life operation due to its ultra-low power consumption.

Together with the open-source Linux host driver, the 15 x 22 x 3 mm module minimizes development time to implement short range wireless communications in end-devices. Also, no trimming or tuning is required during manufacturing of customer end-devices, since ODIN-W160 has pre-calibrated radio parameters and MAC address stored in on-board EEPROM.

ODIN-W160 is in a castellated package, improving visual inspection of end-devices, and comes with a u.fl antenna connector for a wide selection of certified antennas.

It provides modular radio type approvals for Europe, USA, and Canada (R&TTE, FCC, IC), EMC certification, and Bluetooth qualification.
