Telit Cinterion WE310K6-P is a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 based on the Realtek RTL8852BE wireless controller and designed to be integrated into connected devices for Smart Home, medical, industrial, and smart city applications.
The WE310K6-P wireless is available in either LGA or M.2 module form factors and can operate in the -40°C to +85°C temperature range which should make it suitable for a wide range of Linux devices.

The module only works with Linux as the company only provides drivers for Linux for x86, ARM32, and ARM64 targets. The module targets home automation and security products such as Smart Home appliances and IP cameras, healthcare and medical equipment such as medical wearables and wellness devices, industrial and building automation, robotics, smart cities/parking, pet and animal trackers, and so on.
The Realtek RTL8852BE wireless chip does not have a product page on the Realtek website, but it’s already widely used, as we reviewed the GL.iNet Beryl AX router earlier this year, tested an RTL8852BE WiFi 6 M.2 module with the Rock 5B SBC, and also noted its presence in another Rockchip SBC and an Android mini PC.
EVT (Engineering Validation Test) samples of the WE310K6-P are available now, DVT (Design Validation Test) samples are expected by late October, and mass production should start in December 2023. More details may be found on the product page, but except for the product brief, you’ll need to register an account and wait a few days for manual approval before accessing most resources. The press release may have additional information, but feel free to skip the paragraph about the Realtek RTL8822BE(-CG) WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2 chip since the RTL8852BE is used instead…
