Premium WiFi Advantage Hardware

With a global hardware engineering and test team that has decades of experience bringing products to market, we employ learned best design practices, verify and QA validate those designs at each stage of development, and RF test in-house to produce tremendously reliable, globally certified Wi-Fi module solutions. We design to the environments and challenges our customers face and with long-term availability in mind. We offer extensive documentation on all of our offerings, including regulatory documentation, guides, datasheets, targeted application notes, DVK drawings and schematics, 3D models, RF scans, and a global support team is also available to assist.

Our deeply experienced teams work off of best practices developed by years of working together. We know what works and what doesn’t, which we leverage in our designs, as well as in reviewing your designs. Our designers and our RF test teams work from the outset of design clear through to final production and certification testing. 

Our Wi-Fi modules are purpose-built from the start to deliver reliable, high-performance connectivity suited for real problems our customers face in their applications. That means we have deep expertise in components and processes that yield industrial temperature range support, environmental resistance, and everything that makes our customers’ challenges unique. Our products are built for challenging industries like medical and are supported for life cycles of 15+ years.

Ezurio Wi-Fi modules are provided with options for connectors, fittings, and form factors that our customers prefer. Standards-based connectors like M.2, antenna connectors like U.FL and MHF, and SOM edge connectors like SMARC help provide long-term compatibility with popular industry-based hardware.

When appropriate we will design based upon industry standard form factors, including M.2, SDIO and PCIe Cards. Our Sona Wi-Fi module product line embraces the latest M.2 surface mount and plug-in card form factors. Understanding the standards based form factors and pin out is important, and because there is flexibility in the pin connections, having a standard is critical. We understand that in embedded designs it is not a ‘one size fits all’ and as a result support a range of surface mount and plug-in options. The following are our pinout standards for the M.2 2230 plugin card and M.2 1216 SMT pinouts, these are compatible across all Ezurio modules:

Product M.2
9 x 9 mm
10 x 10 mm
12 x 12 mm
13 x 14 mm
12 x 17 mm
21 x 15 mm
60 Series

M.2 1216, M.2 1318, M.2 1219 and M.2 1420 are pin compatible.

We choose industry conventions that help guarantee availability for decades to come. New manufacturing options for system-on-modules (SOMs) in the US, as well as our expanded manufacturing footprint outside of mainland China, give OEMs many more options. Our supply chain diligence protects our product availability and fulfillment, and by extension, yours as well.

We pre-certify our offerings in many of the world’s most popular regulatory regions, such as North America (including Canada), Europe, the UK, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, and more. Our EMC compliance teams have the equipment and expertise to help you secure regulatory approvals anywhere in the world.

We also pre-certify antennas for our modules that take uncertainty and guesswork out of the complete RF pathway. Choosing a pre-certified antenna eliminates regulatory hurdles and ensures the reliable connection demanded by your applications. As regulatory rules and legislation around the world change and impose new demands on equipment manufacturers, our teams provide guidance, updated testing, and continuous compliance.

Our antennas are a perfect fit with our Wi-Fi modules and are included in the approved list of antennas for our precertified modules. We focus on embedded modules that provide targeted benefits for embedded applications.
