n-Link™ Family

n-Link™

The n-Link™ family of IEEE802.11n single stream modules designed to provide high throughputs at ultra low power consumption. The modules have an integrated MAC, baseband processor, RF transceiver and power amplifier. An integrated processor allows for providing a rich set of peripherals with minimal load on the host processor. The small form factor enables the customer to use these modules in handhelds and other portable consumer electronic products. The modules allow for interfacing with the host over SDIO and SPI.

The two variants, RS9110-N-11-02 (IEEE802.11b/g/n) and RS9110-N-11-03 (IEEE802.11a/b/g/n) address the needs of both single band 2.4GHz and dual band 2.4/5 GHz WI-Fi client devices. The RS9113 based modules provide a range of options including support for BT and Zigbee in addition to dual-band Wi-Fi.
