Multi Protocol Wireless Mini PCI Express (PCIe) Card

The RS9113 USB Half Mini Card is based on Redpine Signals RS9113 ultra-low-power Convergence SoC. It offers dual-band 1x1 802.11n, dual-mode Bluetooth 4.0 and ZigBee 802.15.4 in a single device over USB in a Mini PCIe Card form factor. It is an ideal multi-protocol wireless expansion board for IoT Gateways. The RS9113 USB Half Mini Card is a high performance, long range and ultra-low power device and includes a multi-threaded MAC processor called ThreadArch®, baseband digital signal processor, calibration OTP memory, dual-band RF transceiver, dual-band high-power amplifiers, baluns, diplexers, diversity switch, dual-band antenna, u.FL connector and Quad-SPI flash. The software architecture for the USB Half Mini Card, n-Link®, realizes a host-based architecture where the necessary MAC and PHY layers are implemented in the device to support high-performance, long range WLAN, Bluetooth and ZigBee applications in a 32-bit host processor over USB interface.
