LSR Announces TiWi5 and TiWi-BLE

LS Research (LSR) today announced the TiWi5™ and TiWi-BLE™, 802.11/Bluetooth/BLE, FCC/IC-certified and ETSI-tested modules aimed at enabling robust wireless connectivity for embedded systems. The TiWi5 is based on the WL1273 solution from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) and supports 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR, Bluetooth low energy 4.0, and ANT+™. The TiWi-BLE is based on TI’s WL1271 solution and supports 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Bluetooth low energy 4.0, and ANT+. For maximum design reuse, the TiWi-BLE is pin for pin compatible with LSR’s TiWi5 module, and both the TiWi-BLE and TiWi5 are pin for pin compatible with LSR’s 2.4 GHz TiWi-R2™ module. The certified modules provide customer multiple antenna options and offer a -40 to +85 O C industrial temperature range. Additionally, quickly enable manufactures wanting to add the TiWi5 or TiWi-BLE to their product lines, LSR is providing antenna design support, driver integration with various processor platforms, and system level design to customers.

LSR’s new TiWi5 and TiWi-BLE modules provide customers the ability to quickly and cost effectively implement dual-band, multi-standard wireless connectivity on a significant range of microprocessor (MPU)-based platforms. The TiWi5 is aimed at industrial automation, mobile data terminals, wireless video, and other applications, while the TiWi-BLE supports consumer wellness, sports and fitness, security and proximity, smart energy, home automation and entertainment and more. The modules’ technology are designed and built to provide best-in-class WLAN and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy co-existence for seamless transition.

“TI’s strategy is to reduce engineering barriers and accelerate time-to-market for customers adopting our wireless products. A major part of that is simplifying the RF design integration and certification challenges inherent to working with radio technologies,” said Matt Kurtz, channel marketing manager, wireless connectivity solutions, TI. “We’re excited to work with LS Research as they leverage our WL1273 and WL1271 on the first broadly-available dual-band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy module solutions on the market.”
