JALAPENO: Embedded Wi-Fi Module with Quad Cortex A7 for Linux based Applications

by donpedro

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).
If you wish to receive more information in the product, please get in touch with your CODICO contact or Mr. Ivan Mitic, Regional Sales Manager at CODICO.

Development Kits are now available at CODICO’s Sample Shop (www.codico.com/shop).
