WL1805MOD (ACTIVE)

WiLink™ 8 single band, 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi® module

 

More Information

TI WiLink™ 8 module family

The WL1805MOD is one of the six module variants in the TI WiLink 8 combo module family. For designs requiring performance in the 5 GHz band and extended temperature range, see the WL1837MOD.

The WiLink WL1805MOD wireless modules , combined with the HomeKit-enabled Linux based Sitara SDK, enable a fully operational solution for Apple’s HomeKit technology.

Description

The certified WiLink™ 8 module from TI offers high throughput and extended range along with Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® coexistence (WL1835MOD only) in a power-optimized design. The WL18x5MOD device is a 2.4-GHz module, two antenna solution. The device is FCC, IC, ETSI/CE, and TELEC certified for AP and client. TI offers drivers for high-level operating systems such as Linux®and Android™. Additional drivers, such as WinCE and RTOS, which includes QNX, Nucleus, ThreadX, and FreeRTOS, are supported through third parties.
