SX-ULPGN-BTZrenesas-ra-ready-badge-final (003)

Highly Integrated Multi-Radio Host-less Platform for IoT

SX-ULPGN-BTZ is a dual band a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low energy (BLE), 802.15.4 combo module for the Internet-of-Things (IoT). It is a single stream 1x1 WLAN, BLE 5 + 802.15.4 based on Qualcomm's QCA4020 System-on-Chip (SoC).

It enables seamless integration of three popular wireless connectivity technologies (802.11, Bluetooth and 802.15.4) used in the majority of todays IoT applications.

Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi + BT + 802.15.4 connectivity

The SX-ULPGN-BTZ is developed to address the expanding demands of embedded IoT applications the device is suited for single chip gateways, energy management, lighting, industrial automation, white goods appliances, home security and many other applications requiring multi-radio functionality.

  • Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Low Energy + 802.15.4 connectivity (Zigbee, Thread PRO R21)
  • Ecosystem Support: Amazon AWS, OpenThread, Microsoft Azure
  • Supports WPA and WPA2 Enterprise Security. LEAP, EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS, PEAP, EAP-TTLS supported
  • Integrated multi-radio co-Existence : 15.4+BLE+Wi-Fi coexistence on 2 antennas
  • Configurable memory retention for minimizing deep sleep power per application
  • Three dedicated internal processors remove the need for an external CPU/MCU.
