BALI M.2 1630 SDIO card is a high performance multi-protocol certified wireless card supporting dual-band 1-stream (1T1R) Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and dual mode Bluetooth 5.0 in M.2 1630 form factor. This small form-factor card provides superior throughput and long range by integrating high performance baseband, MAC, fine-tuned RF front end, power amplifiers, filters, switches, diplexer and needed crystals. With advanced coexistence algorithms, this card delivers low-latency and high performance WiFi and Bluetooth for superior user experience. This card enables low-power designs by utilizing multiple advanced power-saving techniques wake on wireless and including many host off-loading features. BALI M.2 1630 SDIO is based on Qualcomm QCA9377 SoC and connects to host processor with SDIO 3.0 (WiFi) and UART (BT) host interfaces. These cards are offered with antenna diversity in Industrial and commercial temperature grades. They are certified for FCC, IC, and ETSI/CE. Approval for other countries may be possible upon request.

The BALI M.2 1630 SDIO card is a platform that enables evaluation of hosted Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity. It uses a SDIO interface for WiFi and a UART interface for Bluetooth over M.2 connector. The card includes procedure for Linux build and instructions set, scripts to test the following:
