Solution Description & Supported Functionality

From our TiWi family of products, LSR's TiWi5 module supports 802.11. a/b/g/n, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy all in a single FCC/IC certified and ETSI tested module. The only industrial-temp rated module based on Texas Instruments' WiLink 6.0 technology, TiWi also offers the best radio performance at 20 dBm WLAN output power and up to -97 dBm receiver sensitivity, with 9.5 dBm Bluetooth transmit power.

  • Highly integrated solution that pairs with popular ARM processors such as OMAP, Sitara, Centaurus, and other Cortex A8, ARM9 processors from TI. Offered in a variety of development ecosystem form factors for ease of development, including AM1808, AM18x, AM37/DM37x, Mistral Daughter Card, Pandaboard, and Variscite VAR-SOM-OM44 and COM6L form factor. Industrial temp range for broad application needs including medical, industrial, security, etc. Robust performance, achieving best-in-class link budget of all the TI WL1273L - based module solutions in the market.
