BALI M.2 2230 USB 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 2230 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 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for superior user experience. This card enables low-power designs by utilizing multiple advanced power-saving techniques including wake on wireless and many host off-loading features. BALI M.2 2230 USB is based on Qualcomm QCA9377 SoC and connects to host processor with USB 2.1 (Wi-Fi) and USB 1.1 (BT) host interfaces. These cards are offered with antenna diversity in Industrial and commercial temperature grades. They are certified for FCC, IC,TELEC and ETSI/CE. Approval for other countries may be possible upon request.
