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.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


Laird Connectivity's Chain of Trust architecture for the 60 Series SOM provides layers of enterprise-grade security to protect from external threats. This architecture is designed with multiple layers of signing, verification, and isolation to ensure the device only runs trusted software and protects the host application from intrusion attempts. These capabilities along with FIPS 140-2 certification make the 60 Series SOM the ideal platform for wireless bridges, main processing units, or IoT gateways for medical and industrial applications.
