Extended Battery Life
802.11ax Dual band 2x2 160MHz
By implementing the new 802.11ax standard, with its unique features such as OFDMA, 1024QAM, Target Wake Time (TWT), and spatial reuse, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module enables smooth streaming of high resolution videos, fewer dropped connections, and faster connections farther away from the router and in dense environments.
When using Wi-Fi 6 technology with 1024QAM and 160MHz channels, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module can deliver nearly 3x higher peak data rates3 (up to 2.4Gbps) and up to 4x capacity improvement in dense or congested environments compared to 802.11ac.
Bluetooth® 5 Technology Bluetooth® 5 technology provides 4x range over Bluetooth® 4.2 technology using the same Tx power, enabling coverage throughout the home. Bluetooth® 5 technology also doubles data rate speed for faster transmissions, thereby reducing the overall power consumption. Additionally, Bluetooth® 5 technology adds new enhanced data broadcasting, enabling seamless services such as location-based services and simpler pairing for Bluetooth® devices.
Microsoft Windows* 10 Full support for latest Microsoft Windows* 10 OS.
Form Factors
(M.2 2230 and 1216)
M.2 2230 modules enable system configuration and platform usage flexibility with the use of a standard Key E socket for attaching the module.
M.2 1216 modules enable platform design optimization with the use of an Intel CNVio interface between the CNVi4 and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module5, providing savings on motherboard space, BOM and PCIe* port, plus allowing for flexible motherboard routing up to 10''.
