u-blox in Switzerland has launched its first stand-alone tri-band radio supporting WiFi 6, Bluetooth Low Energy 5.3 and Thread for the Matter IoT protocol.

The IRIS-W1 is based on the NXP RW612 ARM Cortex-M33 wireless chipset and comes in four variants, each enabling the user to select among various antennas and software environments.

It is aimed at segments such as industrial automation, medical equipment, EV charging, smart building and smart home (including intelligent appliances), after-market telematics, and industrial power tools.

WiFi 6 reduces power consumption and increases network efficiency as well as the number of served clients, all of the above clear improvements for IoT devices. The module also enables users to select WiFi channels from the 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrum. Some main benefits are higher availability of network and throughput, less data congestion in dense environments, and lower network deployment costs and the design is suitable for battery-operated devices.

The embedded M33 core removes the need for an external processing unit, reducing costs and saving space in the design. With the available RAM and flash memory, users can use the processing capabilities for advanced applications. In addition, its wide range of peripheral interface enables more options for the designer. The new tri-radio module with NXP EdgeLock and ARM TrustZone enables secure end-product implementations with reliable authentication, confidentiality, and data integrity to protect sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access to the product.
