Why Wi-Fi® + Bluetooth®?
Wi-Fi® + Bluetooth® allow you to connect to internet directly, so it is the most flexible wireless technology for your IoT products. Select from wide range of Wi-Fi® modules supporting IEEE 802.11a, 11b, 11g, 11n and 11ac 2×2 MIMO standard, 2.4GHz and 5GHz band for your wireless LAN and Bluetooth® 4.1/4.2/5.0/5.1 BR/EDR/LE communication. Interface for the host processor is SDIO or PCIe for high throughput applications with radio only modules, and UART with MCU embedded modules for lower data rate applications. Interface for Bluetooth® is UART.
If you only need Bluetooth®, please check Bluetooth®.
There are new terminologies introduced, wi-fi® 4, wi-fi® 5 and wi-fi® 6. They are equivalent with 11n, 11ac and 11ax.
