Key Features

Dual Band 11AC

The E61 Series F is a single-die wireless local network (WLAN) and Bluetooth (BT) combo solution to support 1×2 IEEE 802.11ac/abgn PCI-E WLAN standards and BT 4.2, enabling the seamless integration of WLAN/BT and low-energy technology. It is a small footprint, low-height, modular design providing a fully-featured cost-effective solution for consumer applications. Connect one or two antennas, as per your design specifications.


The E61 Series F comes with World-level Regulatory Compliance and full compatibility with the latest industry standards and advisory for regulatory adaptability, aiding swift design-to-market deployment solution for the growing consumer electronics applications.

Longer Range

Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, the MIMO implementation in this module actually uses reflections to increase the range and reduce “dead spots” in the wireless coverage area.


The E61 Series F is WiFi Direct® & Miracast® Certified enabling easy direct connectivity and wireless display functionality with other compliant devices without the need of a wireless access point.

Less Power

A high level of integration and full implementation of power management functions specified in the E61F Series minimizes system power requirements. Both WLAN and BT conserve power having several power-saving modes implemented, like MIMO-PS, UAPSD, Green-Tx, host power offload, Packet-power-save (PHY-NAP), early beacon termination.

Extended Temperature Grade

Operate consumer electronics under extended temperature conditions (-10 ~ 70°C). The E61F Series is a highly integrated wireless, suitable for outdoor and demanding entertainment applications.

Product Market Orientation
