TI WiLink™ 8 module family
The WL1835MODCOM8 is one of the two evaluation boards for the TI WiLink 8 combo module family. For designs requiring performance in the 5 GHz band and extended temperature range, see the WL1837MODCOM8I.
The WL1835MODCOM8 Kit for Sitara EVMs easily enables customers to add Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® (WL183x module only) to embedded applications based on TI's Sitara microprocessors. TI’s WiLink 8 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth modules are pre-certified and offer high throughput and extended range along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth coexistence (WL183x modules only) in a power-optimized design. Drivers for the Linux and Android high-level operating systems (HLOSs) are available free of charge from TI for the Sitara AM335x microprocessor (Linux and Android version restrictions apply).
