IoT module for demanding industrial applications
12 October 2014
New from Alpha Micro Components is the ODIN-W160 rugged multi-radio Internet of Things (IoT) module from u-blox for demanding industrial, vehicle, medical, and security applications.
The u-blox compact ODIN-W160 module is suitable for small sensor applications in rugged environments. It 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 offers long life and extended battery life operation, thanks to its ultra-low power consumption.
Together with the open-source Linux host driver, the 15 x 22 x 3mm module speeds development of 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 an 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.
