Type ABR is a small module (integrated PCB antenna) based on NXP 88MW320 (wireless microcontroller), supporting Wi-Fi® 802.11 b/g/n up to 72.2 Mbps PHY data rate; with an integrated 200MHz ARM Cortex-M4F MCU for host-side applications.
Type ABR easily enables stand-alone consumer applications with its integrated ARM Cortex-M4F MCU. NXP's powerful EZ-Connect™ tool (WMSDKA) allows customers to quickly and easily customize their solution.
In addition to the stand-alone WMSDKA configuration, NXP provides a MCUXpresso-integrated solution whereby Murata’s Type ABR mikroBUS EVB is paired up with LPCXpresso55S16/28/69 Development Boards. Both Murata and NXP’s documentation details this solution where Type ABR module provides a WLAN link for the NXP LPC MCU via a simple serial interface supported by WMSDKA firmware.
Type ABR network controller module provides device manufacturers with an easy-to-design solution for data acquisition, device management, and industrial control applications. RF matching, Antenna design and Regulatory certification are already taken care of and tested.
Each module offers a complete network controller solution via a simple UART interface. The Wi-Fi®, TCP/IP, security supplicant and other network application features are hosted directly on the module. Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) is also supported.
The feature-rich Type ABR module is packaged in a small form factor that facilitates integration into size- and power-sensitive applications.
