Available in 2 versions!
The new RED-BEAN module from 8DEVICES is based on the QCA9377-3 radio chip from Qualcomm and allows the connectivity of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth applications to a host processor.
The radio-module is available in 2 versions, either with integrated antenna in 24x12mm (BLUE-BEAN-A) or with Murata HSC type connector MM4829-2702RB0 in 17x12mm (BLUE-BEAN-C). In Wi-Fi mode, the bandwidths 20MHz, 40MHz and 80MHz are supported with a maximum data rate of 433Mbps (Single Stream, Multi User, Wave 2, 11ac) and an output power of maximum 20dBm.
Beside 802.11ac @ 5 GHz the module offers also the 2.4GHz band, which ends up in the support of all established Wi-Fi standards 802.11 b/g/n/a/ac. Wi-Fi is connected to the host via SDIO3.0 whereas Bluetooth v4.2 + HS (backwards compatible with v1.x and v2.x) finds connectivity via UART. The modules are supported by Linux and Windows drivers. The temperature grade is defined for -40°C to +85°C.
Further information can be found within the datasheets.
