Basic Information

NW5061 is a cost-effective WLAN module designed for the internet of things (IoT) devices, such as Wi-Fi speaker, smart toys, home gateway, Wi-Fi storage and smart appliances etc. It is based on the X1000/DM6291A SoC, which runs up to 1.0GHz and integrates 32MB/256MB LPDDR, and embedded with a 8/16/32MB SPI Flash, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n or Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (up to 433.3Mbps data rate) and Bluetooth 4.0 with BLE. It also provides two 50-pin pin header interfaces for various external devices.
