Product Overview


WPEB-265AXI(BT) series is a WLAN 802.11ax (WiFi 6)+BT5.0 Module, 802.11ax (WiFi 6) allow efficient allocation of low data-rate connections, improve the battery life of IoT sensors, and extend the range of Wi-Fi signals. The new 802.11ax standard with its unique features such as OFDMA, 1024QAM, Target Wake Time (TWT). WPEB-265AXI(BT) series enables smooth streaming of high-resolution videos, fewer dropped connections and faster connections farther away from the router and in dense environments.



There are two basic types of WPEB-265AXI(BT) Series models, one is USB interface for Bluetooth the other is UART interface for Bluetooth. Function GPIO & UART work with VIO 1.8V. The included PCIe interface for Wi-Fi. The 802.11ax (WiFi 6) half mini PCIe module can support Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to increase channel capacity when simultaneously servicing multiple devices using the same frequency chunks. Bluetooth 5 provides doubles data rates speed for faster transmissions thereby reducing the overall power consumption. Additionally, Bluetooth 5 adds new enhanced data broadcasting enabling seamless services.



WPEB-265AXI(BT) module can support the Soft AP mode and Station (Client) mode. the product can be connected to a wireless network as a Client, while also creating a separate network as an AP for other devices to connect to it.


Suitable Application


Applications include medical devices, security systems, industrial PC, Point of Sale, digital signs, STB, embedded / tablet PC’s, smart devices, thin client devices, Gaming machine, tablets, etc.
