Product NameProduct OutlineDescription
eWBC-V1

  • IEEE802.11n SDIO Wireless LAN module
  • Size: 20.00 x 13.50 x 3.56mm (including header connector)
  • Radio Certifications: Japan (Plan: US and EU Countries)
Features:
"eWBC-V1" is selected as reference of wireless LAN module for Renesas Electronics SDIO supported microcontroller "RX family; RX231, RX64M, RX71M" and "RZ family." Renesas Electronics is planning to expand target CPUs accordingly.

Users are able to do eWBC + target CPU evaluation easily with µITRON or FreeRTOS + Renesas Electronics network protocol stack M3S-T4-Tiny + SDIO driver + eWBC Wireless LAN driver. Wireless LAN expansion board package for Renesas Starter Kit (RSK) is available. Please visit the URL below for further details.
