Multiradio modules simplify automotive connectivity

u-blox has announced the EMMY-W1 series of multiradio modules for easy, reliable implementation of automotive short-range connectivity applications, such as in-car hotspots, rear seat entertainment, hands-free telephony, rear view camera communications and GUI mirroring with simple, user-friendly NFC pairing.

The EMMY-W1 series combines high speed Wi-Fi 802.11ac/a/b/g/n and dual-mode Bluetooth v4.1 (Bluetooth Smart Ready). The dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5GHz), dual-mode Bluetooth ensures the widest possible connectivity with any mobile device. One module variant integrates an LTE co-location filter that permits the device’s Wi-Fi antenna to be positioned close to an LTE cellular radio antenna, for example in the same ‘shark fin’ antenna housing, enabling external Wi-Fi connectivity.

EMMY-W1 modules, measuring 13.8x19.8x2.5mm, are qualified to VW 80000/ISO 16750-4, and have European, US, and Canadian certifications. They feature best-in-class radio performance and operate from -40 to +85°C ambient.

Engineering samples and development kits are available now, and the modules will be in volume production in Q3 2015.
