u-blox announces its first tri-radio stand-alone module featuring dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth LE and Thread
Thalwil, Switzerland – March 14, 2023 – u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, has announced u-blox IRIS-W1, the first compact stand-alone Wi-Fi module combining dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth® LE (Low Energy) 5.3, and Thread including support for Matter. IRIS-W1 comes in four variants, each enabling the user to select among various antennas and software environments.
The embedded powerful Arm® Cortex®-M33 MCU removes the need for an external processing unit, reducing costs and saving space in the design. With the available RAM and flash memory, users can leverage the processing capabilities for advanced applications. In addition, its wide range of peripheral interface enables more options for the designer. The new tri-radio module with NXP EdgeLock and Arm® TrustZone® enables secure end-product implementations with reliable authentication, confidentiality, and data integrity. By protecting sensitive data and preventing unauthorized access to the product, IRIS-W1 perfectly suits applications requiring high security.
This tri-radio stand-alone module supports Thread (and Matter) in addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. With its three available radios, it adapts well to a wide range of use cases, providing integrated coexistence between radios and a powerful MCU. With this, users can expect less radio interference, a lower bill of materials (BoM), and an easy integration design.
u-blox (SIX:UBXN) is a global technology leader in positioning and wireless communication in automotive, industrial, and consumer markets. With headquarters in Thalwil, Switzerland, the company is globally present with offices in Europe, Asia, and the USA. (www.u-blox.com)
