BALI M.2 SDIO is a high performance multi-protocol certified wireless module supporting dual-band 1-stream (1T1R) 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and BT5.0. This M.2 1216 standard form-factor Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo module provides superior throughputs and long range by integrating high performance base band, MAC, fine-tuned RF front end, power amplifiers, filters, switches, diplexer and crystals. With advanced coexistence algorithms, this module delivers low-latency and excellent rate-over-range performance for superior user experience. Enables secure connections using strong encryption and enterprise security protocols. These Wi-Fi modules with Bluetooth enables low-power designs by utilizing multiple advanced power-saving techniques and many host off-loading features. This SDIO Wi-Fi + BT module is based on Qualcomm QCA9377 SoC and connects to host processor with SDIO 3.0 (Wi-Fi) and UART (BT).

This multi-radio module comes with drivers for different operating systems (Linux and Android) for complete design flexibility and ease of integration. It is offered in commercial and industrial temperature grades.
