The LBEL6Z2TXC wireless combination module from Murata is aimed at automotive applications and uses an AEC-Q100 compliant chipset.

Providing support for wireless LAN, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communications in addition to providing an FM radio receiver and GPS receiver the module measures just 24.6 x 18.0 x 3.0 mm. The WLAN feature is IEEE 802.11 b, g and n compliant and also supports WiFi Direct. Bluetooth 4.0 class 2 compliant support and H4 protocol is standard. By combining the five wireless functions into a single package allow designers to simplify their end-designs, save valuable board space in addition to easing the burden of procurement when compared to having to select multiple modules from other suppliers.

The use of the LBEL6Z2TXC speeds time to market since the modules are pre-qualified removing the need for time consuming design testing and evaluation. Module interfaces include a UART, PCM, SDIO, I2S and audio. The unit operates from +3.3 or from +1.8 VDC, across a wide range of temperatures from -40 to +85ºC. Typical applications include car infotainment, parking assistance, telematics, driver assist and internet-in-car.
