Variscite Releases First Wi-Fi 6-Enabled System-on-Module To Enhance Connectivity Performance


NXP-based Wi-Fi 6 Module Delivers Extended Bandwidth, Improved Range, High-Throughput Simultaneous Streaming, Reduced Latency, and Optimized Power Management

Variscite, a leading worldwide System on Module (SoM) designer, developer and manufacturer, announced its support for Wi-Fi 6 today and has released the enhanced NXP i.MX93 based SoM with the NXP-based Wi-Fi 6 module.

Wi-Fi 6 provides numerous advantages over previous-generation Wi-Fi modules. These advantages include extended bandwidth, improved range, better simultaneous stream capabilities, lower latency, and optimized power management. The integration of NXP’s IW611/ IW612 Wi-Fi 6 modules offers certified and secure dual-band Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax/ac/a/b/g/n solution with BT/BLE 5.3 and optional 802.15.4 tri-radio that fully supports the new Matter™ standard to meet the next generation of IoT requirements.

The VAR-SOM-MX93 is Variscite’s first of several Wi-Fi 6-enabled releases in the company’s extensive product portfolio. This upgraded SoM is available to order, along with related evaluation kits, from Variscite’s online store. SoMs based on the NXP i.MX8 series will soon be upgraded to Wi-Fi 6, offering users the same enhanced connectivity features and performance.

Starting at only US $39, the SoM offers an energy flex architecture for efficient processing with integrated AI/ML NPU acceleration and targets markets like industrial, IoT, smart edge devices, and portable devices.

“It is our mission to deliver advanced SoM solutions that leverage the latest technology advances, such as Wi-Fi 6,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “With growing interest in IoT and portable wireless connections, we anticipate strong demand for upgraded connectivity in the industrial embedded systems market. With this advanced solution, unparalleled speed and efficiency are not just future expectations, but reality today.”

Variscite’s VAR-SOM-MX93 runs on 1.7GHz Dual Cortex™-A55 NXP’s iMX93 processor with 250MHz Cortex-M33 real-time processor and features the industry’s first implementation of the Arm® neural processing unit, Ethos™-U65 microNPU. The SoM provides built-in security features, 2x CAN bus, 2x GbE, industrial temperature range, camera inputs, audio in/out, ADC, 2x USB, certified Wi-Fi 6, BT/BLE 5.3, and display outputs.

The VAR-SOM-MX93 features Variscite’s VAR-SOM Pin2Pin product family, offering compatibility of one carrier board design to several SoMs. This extensive Pin2Pin family ensures extended longevity, as well as reduced development time, costs and risks.
