Overview

Several industrial markets (especially retail scales) require a Wi-Fi 5/IEEE 802.11ac solution. This solution shows how easily platforms can be expanded with an M.2 Type E Wi-Fi board with PCIe. In this example, we show a combination of an RZ/G2M SMARC SoM (Scalable HMI SMARC SoM with AI) + a Wi-Fi 5 module on the (High Performance HMI System) universal carrier board.

System Benefits​:

  • Ready-to-use, proven-to-work Wi-Fi 5 M.2 board with all needed components
    • 4x4 MIMO for Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11ac using either
      • The CL2440 connectivity chip when existing infrastructure is 5GHz (with lower interference and higher throughput)
      • The CL2442 connectivity chip when existing infrastructure is 2.4GHz (more widely used)
  • Form factor M.2 Type E, with superfast PCIe interface
  • Single 3.3V supply, other power rails generated on module, additional 5V for the SMARC module

Target Applications:

  • Retail scales
  • Point of sale (POS) terminals
  • Digital signage
