Several industrial markets, especially retail scales, require a Wi-Fi 6/IEEE 802.11ax dual band 2.4GHz + 5GHz solution. This platform is enhanced with an M.2 Type E Wi-Fi board with PCIe. In this design, we show a combination of an RZ/G2M SMARC and a Wi-Fi 6 module on a carrier board.

System Benefits​:

  • Ready-to-use Wi-Fi 6 M.2 board with all needed components
  • 4x4 MIMO for Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11ax, compatible with existing infrastructure in 2.4GHz or 5GHz bands
  • M.2 Type E form factor with a high-speed PCIe interface
  • Single 3.3V power supply; other power rails are generated on the module, with an additional 5V for the SMARC module




  • Retail scales with Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Point of sale (POS) terminals
  • Digital signage
  • MPU-based solutions with Wi-Fi connectivity
