Thr Wi-Fi Pmod Expansion Board enables quick prototyping of wireless connectivity solutions using a variety of Renesas microcontroller (MCU) kits. It features an SX-ULPGN, a single-band 2.4GHz 802.11n module based on the Qualcomm QCA4010 System-on-Chip (SoC).

MCUs Supported

Getting Started

  1. RA Microcontrollers - In order to use the Wi-Fi Pmod Expansion Board with an RA MCU evaluation kit, refer to the Wi-Fi example project for that kit.
    • The project files (including binary/hex files) of the Wi-Fi example project for a kit are provided in the RA example project bundle ( for that kit which is available with Renesas' Flexible Software Package (FSP). Example:
    • The source code of the Wi-Fi example projects are also available at RA FSP Example Projects on GitHub. Browse to ra-fsp-examples/example_projects/<kit_name>/wifi_<kit_name>_ep. Example: ra-fsp-examples/example_projects/ek_ra6m3/wifi/wifi_ek_ra6m3_ep
  2. Synergy Platform - In order to use Wi-Fi Pmod Expansion Board with a Synergy Platform kit, refer to the Silex Technology SX-ULPGN Wi-Fi Drivers and PMOD Partner Project
  3. RX Microcontrollers - In order to use Wi-Fi Pmod Expansion Board with RX Microcontrollers, refer to the RX65N Cloud Kit.
