Telit, an IoT enabler today announced the WE310G4 module, which enables device vendors to add dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 connectivity quickly and cost-effectively to their products.

Based on Realtek Ameba system on chip (SoC), the WE310G4 is ideal for a wide variety of embedded devices, including smart lighting, home appliances, medical wearables, smart city sensors, aftermarket telematics and industrial robots.

The Telit WE310G4 is said to be ideal for vendors that have limited Wi-Fi or BLE expertise and those with extensive RF experience that want to reduce time to market for new products. The module is IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth certified, and complies with all Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG-v5 requirements, eliminating the time and expense of testing and certification.

The WE310G4 provides device vendors with a low-cost, high-speed serial-to-Wi-Fi/BLE connection to an embedded design built on an 8/16/32-bit microcontroller. The module can be implemented as a host-less solution offering up to 456 Kb of SRAM dedicated to customer application development.

“The new Telit WE310G4 module gives vendors a fast, easy way to add Wi-Fi or BLE to their products — even if they have little or no in-house RF expertise,” said Manish Watwani, Chief Marketing and Product Officer, Telit. “It’s ideal for vendors that want to develop wearables, IoT sensors and other products with enterprise-grade security, long battery life and other market-differentiating features, and then have them in customers’ hands before competitors do.”

Telit said the engineering samples of the WE310G4 will be available in Q2, with mass production scheduled to begin in Q3 2022.
