The new Wi-Fi module Jalapeno from 8DEVICES supports DB/DC (Dual Band Dual Concurrency) 802.11a/b/g/n/ac in MU-MIMO 2×2 and provides 2×1000 Base-T and USB3.0 high-speed interfaces for high performance IoT-Hubs, Gateways, Routers und Access Points. Development Kits are available at our Sample Shop.
Jalapeno is based on the new SoC IPQ-4018 from QUALCOMM, which provides the special capability of serving two frequency bands 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time. This results in a maximum antenna data rate of 1.166Gbps; 866Mbps at 11ac 2×2 @ 5 GHz and 300Mbps for 11n 2×2 @ 2.4 GHz. To process the high data throughput, two Cortex-A7 CPUs are available as network processors and two more are available as application-processors.
All 4 CPUs are running at 700 MHz clock rate, each providing a NEON MPE (Media Processor Engine), one FPU (Floating Point Unit) as well as a number of high-end security features like secure boot and crypto engines. Also the memory configuration of 256MB DDR3 @ 667MHz, 128MB NAND and 8MB NOR FLASH will meet your hardest requirements.
In addition to USB3.0 and 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, Jalapeno offers numerous other interfaces like USB2.0, I2C, I2S, UART and GPIOs. OpenWRT linux distribution source code is available on GitHub ( https://github.com/8DEVICES) and is supported on the growing community forum ( http://www.8DEVICES.com/community).
