1x1 802.11abgn + BT4.0 + ZigBee embedded combo Module

RS9113 Connect-io-n Module Family

The RS9113 Connect-io-n module is based on Redpine Signals RS9113 ultra-low-power, single spatial stream, dual-band 802.11n + Bluetooth (BT4.0) + ZigBee (ZB) Convergence SoC. The RS9113 module is a complete IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n, ZB and BT wireless device server that provides a wireless interface to any equipment with a UART, SPI or USB interface. 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 and all WLAN, BT and ZB protocols and networking stack functionality in embedded firmware to make a fully self-contained wireless solution for a variety of applications. The module integrates an antenna and a U.FL connector for external antenna with an option to select either one of them. The M2MCombo (RS9113) chips and modules leverage and improve upon Redpine's proven low power innovations from Lite-FiTM products (RS9110) and provide WLAN 802.11n, BT4.0 and ZB convergence solution for integration into mobile and M2M communication devices.
