Product description:

ELIN-W160 is a powerful and compact System-on-Module with multi-radio wireless capabilities, Linux OS, dual Ethernet RMII and a range of other interfaces.

The wireless support includes Bluetooth v4.0 with Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy, plus Wi-Fi with dual-band support for 2.4 GHz and the full 5 GHz band.

In the powerful 600 MHz TI Sitara ARM Cortex A8 CPU, custom applications can easily be integrated on top of the Yocto based Linux distribution. This allows for high-performing and cost-effective solutions, such as gateways with advanced protocol conversion and cloud access for Internet of Things applications leveraging the wide base of packages available in Yocto.

The module combines powerful hardware and multiple wireless interfaces, which isolates the complex RF design and certifications from the rest of your product. The module is designed for a long life cycle, has an extended operating temperature range, and is suitable for industrial, vehicle, medical, security, and other demanding applications.

ELIN-W160 has a U.FL antenna connector for a wide selection of certified antennas. No trimming or tuning is required during manufacturing of customer end-devices, since the module has pre-calibrated radio parameters and MAC addresses stored in on-board EEPROM.

The module provides modular radio type approvals for Europe, US and Canada (R&TTE, FCC, IC), EMC certification, and Bluetooth qualification, which simplifies and shortens the integration work.
