December 06, 2019
Incorporating both Wi-Fi 5 & Bluetooth low energy 5, the JODY-W2 multiradio module from u-blox incorporates the latest AEC-Q100 qualified wireless system-on-chip (SoC) technology.
Incorporating both Wi-Fi 5 & Bluetooth low energy 5, the JODY-W2 multiradio module from u-blox incorporates the latest AEC-Q100 qualified wireless system-on-chip (SoC) technology. The 13.8mm x 19.8mm module addresses automotive space constraints, with an operating temperature range from -40ºC up to 105ºC, so it is also suited for industrial applications.
One non AEC-Q100 variant is specifically targeting industrial control and monitoring applications, such as patient monitoring, plus surveillance systems, and in-building asset tracking. It has dual band Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), covering 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency channels, as well as built-in WPA3-compliant security mechanisms. In addition, it offers Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth Classic, and Bluetooth low energy cross-protocol coexistence, with separate antennas for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
The JODY-W2 provides access for up to 8 devices, offering enough bandwidth for video streaming via several devices at once. It has the capacity to support parallel transportation of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals, and can simultaneously act as an access point and as a station, or conduct peer-to-peer communication.
