LGA Modules 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 + Bluetooth4.0 + 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, Bluetooth4.0 and ZigBee convergence solution for integration into mobile and M2M communication devices. It can connect to a host processor through SDIO or USB interfaces.
