Automotive-Grade Dual-Band Wi-Fi 6/Bluetooth 5.3 Wireless Module

30 June 2023

Intended for use in next generation vehicle designs, the JODY-W5 is the latest addition to the u-blox portfolio of wireless communication modules.

Based on NXP's AW611 2.4GHz/5GHz RF transceiver chip, this module provides dual-band 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) and dual-mode Bluetooth 5.3 (including LE Audio) functionality. It is supplied in a compact 13.8mm x 19.8mm x 2.5mm form factor. Among its potential uses are helmet-to-helmet communication (for two-wheel vehicles), EV charging solutions (like link/device configuration, etc.), telematics control, rear-seat entertainment infotainment connectivity, smartphone tethering and hands-free calling. Sophisticated security features support over-the-air firmware updates and secure boot procedures.

“Keeping the successful u-blox JODY form factor, seamless migration through performance generations, and feature sets for various environmental requirements, the module provides users maximum configuration freedom. Furthermore, it covers RF design and certification requirements for end devices use and applications, which can be extended globally upon request. In collaboration with NXP, u-blox provides hardware and software connectivity for easy integration and long-term support,” states Sebastian Schreiber, Product Strategy, Short Range Radio, at u-blox.
