1x1 802.11abgn + BT4.0 + ZigBee®

RS9113 n-Link™ Module Family

The RS9113 n-Link module family is based on Redpine Signals' RS9113 ultra-low-power, single spatial stream, dual-band 802.11n + BT4.0 + ZigBee Convergence SoC. The RS9113 module integrates a multi-threaded MAC processor with integrated analog peripherals and support for digital peripherals, baseband digital signal processor, analog front-end, crystal oscillator, calibration OTP memory, dual-band RF transceiver, dual-band high-power amplifiers, baluns, diplexers, diversity switch and Quad-SPI Flash thus providing a fully-integrated solution for embedded wireless applications. The RS9113 based chips and modules leverage and improve upon Redpine's proven low power innovations from Lite-FTM products (RS9110) and provide WLAN 802.11n, BT4.0 and ZigBee convergence solution for integration into mobile and M2M communication devices. It can connect to a host processor through SDIO or USB interfaces.

Part Numbering Convention

    RS9113-XYZ-ABC
    Where,

  • X = “N” if Wi-Fi is present or “0” if Wi-Fi is absent
  • Y = “B” if Bluetooth is present or “0” if Bluetooth is absent
  • Z = “Z” if ZigBee is present or “0” if ZigBee is absent
  • A = “S” for Single band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz) or “D” for Dual band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz/5 GHz)
  • B = “0” for no antenna package or “1” for single antenna package
  • C = “N” for n-Link product family, “C” for Connect-io-n product family, “W” for WiSeConnect product family
  • Examples:

  • RS9113-NBZ-S0N refers to single band n-Link module with no antenna and integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ZigBee
