Wi-Fi 6/6E modules ready to ship

Mouser Electronics is now stocking Laird Connectivity’s Sona IF573 Wi-Fi 6/6E modules. Designed for next-generation industrial IoT connectivity applications, these robust, rugged and compact modules provide easy integration and highly reliable connectivity, allowing access to both PCIE and SDIO interfaces in a pluggable card or SMT M.2 packaging.

Sona IF573 modules are engineered as high- performance, industrial-grade devices powered by Infineon Technologies’ AIROC CYW55573 chipset, enabling Wi-Fi 6/6E beyond its standard requirements and enhancing the module’s range, reliability and robustness in congested networks for IoT applications or lower latency in AI applications.

The modules support a tri-band 2×2 MIMO IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax WLAN with data rates up to MCS11 and dual-mode Bluetooth. The module’s full digital MAC and baseband engines handle all 802.11 CCK/OFDM/OFDMA 2.4/5/6 GHz and Bluetooth 5.4 baseband and protocol processing capabilities.

Target applications include industrial IoT sensors and gateways, rugged handheld devices and medical equipment.
