Wi-Fi Module Packs WLAN, Bluetooth, And An MCU

Laird Connectivity’s Sterling-EWB is promoted as a high-performance 2.4-GHz WLAN and Bluetooth combo module that makes it easy to gather data from sensors and wirelessly send it to cloud services. With an industrial temperature rating and an array of country certifications, the module suits a wide range of applications including security and building automation, IoT & M2M connectivity, and smart gateways.


Based on Cypress’ 4343W silicon with an integrated ST Micro STM32F412 Cortex M4 MCU, the module offers power-conscious battery management that enables deployment in remote battery powered devices. The onboard STM32F412 Cortex M4 Microcontroller complies with several sensor interfaces including SPI, QSPI, USART, PCM, ADC, I2C, I2S, GPIO, and JTAG.


The Sterling-EWB is also compatible with Cypress' WICED software development kit (SDK), a comprehensive software package that leverages a suite of tools that promise to simplify complex application designs. The Sterling-EWB is offered in three package styles including SIP module, PCB module with onboard chip antenna, or PCB module with u.FL connector. For more information checkout the Sterling-EWB datasheet.
