We’ve been covering some 802.11ax WiFI 6 embedded networking boards from Wallys Communications and Compex in the last few months, but 8devices has now entered the fray with Qualcomm IPQ6000/IPQ6010 powered Mango WiFi 6 system-in-module available in commercial or industrial temperature range, as well as as a development kit based on the module. Mango SoM supports dual-band 2×2 MiMo 802.11ax and multi-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, features up to 2GB RAM, 256MB NAND flash, and runs OpenWrt Linux with target applications including routers, gateways, and access points. Mango SoM Specifications: SoC (one or the other) Qualcomm IPQ6000 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor @ up to 1.2 GHz with hardware NAT engine, HW crypto Qualcomm IPQ6010 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor @ up to 1.8 GHz with hardware NAT engine, HW crypto System Memory – 512MB DDR3L 512MB (up to 2GB) Storage – 32MB NOR FLASH, up to 256MB NAND flash Networking Wireless 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n/ac/ax WiFi 6 2×2 MU-MIMO, explicit beamforming; 22dBm; up to 573.5 Mbps […]
Last April, we first wrote about Qualcomm IPQ4019 quad-core Cortex-A7 processor with built-in 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi, as it was found in Qualcomm Mesh Networking DevKit with support for Amazon Alexa. A few months later, we discovered router boards powered by either IPQ4019 or IPQ4029 processor such as Dakota DR40X9 or MikroTik RB450Gx4. The latter does not come with WiFi at all and instead leverages the hardware IPSec encryption built-into the processor. Habanero System-on-Module Today, we’ve come across the first IPQ4019 / IPQ4029 system-on-module we’ve countered so far, courtesy of 8devices with their Habanero and Habanero-I 802.11ac Wave 2 modules based on the respective processors. Habanero(-I) specifications: SoC – Qualcomm IPQ4019/IPQ4029 quad-core Arm Cortex-A7 processor @ 717 MHz with NEON, FPU, hardware-based NAT engine, and crypto accelerator System Memory – 512 MB DDR3L RAM Storage – 32MB NOR flash; up to 1 GB NAND flash on baseboard Connectivity QCA8075C 5-port Gigabit Ethernet transceiver Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wave2 Wi-Fi 5 2×2 MiMo […]
8devices has been developping and selling WiFi modules such as their Rambutan Atheros module, and the now-discontinued Carambola module. The company is now back with Komikan, an 802.11ac Wave 2 + Bluetooth 4.1 module, as well as the corresponding Komikan development kit. Komikan 802.11ac Wave 2 Module Specifications: CPU – Realtek RTL8197FS MIPS 24Kc processor @ 1 GHz System Memory – 128 MB RAM Storage – 32MB flash Connectivity WiFi 4 802.11 b/g/n 2×2 MIMO via RTL8197FS WiFi 5 802.11ac Wave 2 2×2 MIMO via Realtek RTL8822BEH Bluetooth v2.1/3.0/4.1 Max output power – 22 dBm per chain Antenna – GPIO pins for external antenna Expansion via bottom pads – 44x GPIO, 2x USB, 4x UART (one for BT), RGMII, 2x SPI, PWM, MDIO, eMMC, JTAG, 2x I2S, PCM, 2x I2C, P-NAND Power supply – 3.3V, max power consumption 6W Dimensions – 37.5 x 21.3 mm The two integrated radios (2.4 and 5GHz) can achieve up to 1.166Gbps data rates, the […]
8Devices, a Lithuanian company specialized in the development and manufacturing of electronic equipment, is known for their Carambola and Carambola2 WiFi modules powered by Ralink and Qualcomm Atheros WiSoCs. The company has now introduced a new dual band WiFi module called Rambutan that comes in commercial and industrial temperature range through respectively Qualcomm Atheros QCA9557 & QCA9550 SoCs. Rambutan and Rambutan-I modules specifications: SoC Rambutan – Qualcomm Atheros QCA9557 MIPS processor @ 720 MHz Rambutan-I – Qualcomm Atheros QCA9550 MIPS processor @ 720 MHz System Memory – 128 MB DDR2 Storage – 128 MB Flash Connectivity WiFi – 802.11 a/b/g/n, 2.4 or 5 GHz, 2×2 MIMO, 300 Mbps data rate, 21 dB per chain output power; 2x u.FL connectors Ethernet – Atheros AR8032 10/100M Ethernet PHY 68x half holes with 2 x USB 2.0 host port 2 x serial port 1x 100 Base-T Ethernet port; 1000 Base-T Ethernet port (SGMII interface) I2S, SPI, I2C, GPIO, PCIe, MDIO Power Supply – […]
WeIO is an open source hardware board for the Internet of things with Wi-Fi connectivity and lots of I/Os designed by nodesign, a French based startup, in collaboration of 8devices, the makers of the Carambola boards. WeIO is powered by an Atheros AR9331 SoC running OpenWRT as well as an NXP LPC MCU for faster handling of I/Os and support for analog I/Os. One interesting aspect of this board is that it can be programmed via a web browser using HTML5 or Python, and it does not rely on the Cloud to store data. WeIO hardware specifications: SoC – Atheros AR9331 MIPS 24K Wireless SoC @ 400 MHz MCU – NXP LPC11xx ARM Cortex M0 MCU for analog I/O and real-time H/W interfaces System Memory – 64 MB DDR2 Storage – 16 MB flash + micro SD slot Connectivity – 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi with on-board antenna (AP and STA modes), solder pads for Ethernet USB – 1x USB 2.0 host […]
