Announces Multiradio Module

for Internet of Things


At SPS/IPC/Drives,

Germany
,
connectBlue

today

releases

the

Multiradio Module
OWL355

which

is

a

completely ready
-
to
-
embed
module for demanding

industrial,
medical

and
Internet of Things (IoT)
applications
. The OWL
355 module offers
multiradio capability across Classic Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy and WLAN with
full dual
-
band support for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands.


The new Multiradio Modu
le OWL355
is completely ready
-
to
-
embed in demanding
IoT
,
industrial and medical applications. For instance, the OWL355 meets
a
higher quality level
regarding both IPC

class

and AQL

standards
. Also no trimming and tuning is needed during
the customer end
-
pr
oduct manufacturing, since the OWL355 has pre
-
calibrated

radio
parameters and MAC address stored on
-
board in EEPROM.



T
he
Multiradio Module
OWL355 follows
our

new smaller footprint standard particularly
aimed at smaller sensor products prevalent in Intern
et of Things scenarios
,”
says Rolf
Nilsson, CEO of connectBlue.


We have focused on delivering a product that makes sure our
customers can be up and running quickly with their
IoT
applications
.




Together with the open source Linux host driver the module
minimizes the work needed to
implement wireless technology in a device as it
will provide

hardware, modular radio type
approval, EMC certificat
ion, Bluetooth qualification,
wide range of certified antennas and
offers extremely long life cycle.


The
Multira
dio Module
OWL355
enables

robust wireless connectivity for embedded systems

across Classic Bluetooth v2.1+EDR, Bluetooth low energy v4.0 and Wireless LAN (WLAN)
802.11 a, b, g, n.
The OWL355 has full dual
-
band support for the 2.4GHz band and
the
5GHz U
-
NII

bands (U
-
NII band 1, 2, 2e, 3).


Other popular features for demanding industrial
and medical wireless applications include s
older
castellations for visual inspection, extended
operating temperature range of
-
40 to +85°C
,
WLAN SDIO or SPI host interface

a
nd

Bluetooth UART host interface
.

About Internet of Things (IoT)

With yearly shipments of more than 10 billion microcontrollers that all can exchange information locally
or through the Internet, a huge variety of so called “intelligent devices” are enabled. All thes
e devices
can be accessed over the Internet and this evolution is c
ommonly referred to as Internet of
Things
(IoT).
To connect the device to the Internet a local low power wireless connection is
ideal

for example
via the
Multiradio
OWL355 module. For most
such applications and solutions the device connects to a
gateway with Ethernet or
use a
cellular network connection to the Internet.
