Summit Announces Industrial-Grade and Medical-Grade Wi-Fi and
Bluetooth Combo Modules

Summit has announced the release of two new modules that deliver support for the latest Wi-Fi standards as well as fully integrated Bluetooth. These combination modules enable manufacturers to reduce device size, current consumption and build cost resulting in less expensive, more ergonomic products with improved battery life.

Two modules are available, the SDC-MSD40NBT is a PCB module measuring 32 x 22 mm with a board to board host device connector, and the SDC-SSD40NBT is a System in Package (SiP) module measuring just 15 x 15 mm. Both are based on the popular Broadcom BCM4329 chip and support 802.11a/b/g/n via an SDIO interface and Bluetooth 2.1 via a UART interface.

The modules provide all of Summit's hardware and software capabilities including optimized transmit and receive range, dual band antenna diversity, an expanded operating temperature range, a fully integrated software suite and advanced Wi-Fi/Bluetooth coexistence. The SDC-MSD40NBT and the SDC – SSD40NBT are pin and dimensionally compatible with legacy Summit modules providing current Summit customers with an easy migration path.
