SoM & Software Stack Deliver Enterprise-Class Wi-Fi Connectivity

Laird Connectivity’s 60 Series System on Module (SOM) and the Summit Software Stack deliver what the company claims is superior Wi-Fi connectivity. The Summit Software Stack is an enterprise-grade software update that ensures wireless devices perform at their peak performance. The Summit Software Stack includes optimizations that reduce channel scan times, provides up to 15 times faster roaming, and up to 50% more consistent roaming when compared with other radios.


The 60 Series SOM is based on the Microchip SAMA5D36 and provides full support for 2x2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac WLAN plus Bluetooth 4.2 dual-mode. It is equipped with a Cortex A5 applications processor, wireless and wired connectivity, enterprise-grade security, LCD support, and comprehensive Linux board support package.
