BALI Half Mini PCIe card is a high performance multi-protocol certified wireless system supporting dual-band 1-stream (1T1R) Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and dual mode Bluetooth 5.0. This card provides high 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 many host off-loading features. BALI Half MiniPCIe is based on Qualcomm QCA9377 SoC and connects to host processor with PCIe (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, and ETSI/CE. Approvals for other countries may be possible upon request.

The BALI hmPCIe card is a platform that enables evaluation of hosted Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity. It uses a PCIe interface for WiFi and USB interface for Bluetooth over half mini PCIe connector. The card includes procedure for Linux build and instructions set, scripts to test the following:
