Today, we live in a world of connected devices - where every device, and increasingly everything, is connected. Gadgets around us are constantly collecting, transmitting, and analyzing data.

Wireless makes the Internet of Things (IoT) possible and Murata's wireless innovations help to make new IoT products a reality. We are at the forefront of wearable computing, intelligent homes, smart cars, digital health and fitness.

Murata offers a variety of connectivity solutions to meet your needs. Through our Wireless Connectivity Platforms, Murata is continuously innovating the ways to connect and network devices, equipment, and processes.

The Murata Wireless Connectivity Platforms uniquely assist OEM design engineers, applications developers, and/or systems integrators in accelerating development and delivery of public or private cloud networking solutions to consumer, commercial and industrial customers.

Murata’s connectivity solutions for IoT are based on the Cypress WICED® architecture. Murata offers high quality, easy-to-use, certified and ultra-small wireless connectivity modules based on Cypress Semiconductor Corporation for minimizing development time and effort. Examples of Murata’s Cypress based modules are found below:

Type 1DX

Order Number: LBEE5KL1DX

  • 2.4GHz WiFi + Bluetooth WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Network Topology: AP and STA dual mode
  • Chipset: Cypress (CYW4343W)
  • Processor: No

The Murata Type 1DX Wi-Fi module, based on the Cypress 4343W chipset, has been incorporated into Future Electronics’ recently launched Nebula IoT Development Kit. The board was designed for novices and expert developers looking to explore the vast opportunities in IoT applications such as asset tracking, energy management, fitness, lighting controls, HVAC, portable controls, security and building automation.

The kit is an IoT cloud-ready board that allows developers to quickly prototype and deploy their IoT ecosystems. Wireless connectivity is supported by the Murata 1DX module, which is powered by the Cypress CYW4343W Wi-Fi and BT/BLE combo SoC. The SoC includes a 2.4 GHz WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g/n baseband/radio and Bluetooth 4.2 support. In addition, it integrates a high-performance power amplifier (PA), a low-noise amplifier (LNA) for best-in-class receiver sensitivity, and an internal transmit/receive (iTR) RF switch to reduce the overall solution cost and 1DX module size.

The Nebula board supports applications development through the Cypress WICED® (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio development platform.

It is also equipped with four interfaces to access the STM32F429 peripherals that enable developers to create any IoT application: ArduinoTM compatible shield, mikroBUSTM socket, PmodTM Connector/Interface and USB. In addition, the kit employs easy hardware expandability through a large number of standardized add-on boards. Each one focuses on a different application such as motor control and environmental sensors, including the wireless connectivity to enable IoT development.

Murata’s 1DX Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo module on the Nebula board is also a certified solution designed to fit into small spaces and utilizes minimal external circuitry. The end result allows engineers to overcome design challenges and launch the products that make IoT a reality.

Type 1FX

Order Number: LBWA1KL1FX

  • 2.4GHz Wi-Fi Module
  • Network Topology: AP and STA dual mode
  • Chipset: Cypress (CYW43364)
  • Processor: No
  • Modulation: DSSS / CCK / OFDM

Murata Type 1FX module is an ultra-small module that includes 2.4GHz WLAN functionality. Based on Cypress CYW43364, the module provides high-efficiency RF front end circuits. The module is designed to fit into small spaces and is smaller than a dime. Minimal external circuitry is required to complete a radio design; add an antenna, power source, clocks, processor, and associated interface hardware and the radio hardware design is complete. To ease Wi-Fi certification, the Type 1FX module complies with IEEE 802.11b/g/n. Software is available for Linux and Android.

Type 1GC

Order Number: LBWA1UZ1GC

  • 4GHz & 5GHz Wi-Fi / dual mode
  • Chipset: Cypress (R4 CYW43907)
  • Processor: ARM Cortex
  • Modulation: DSSS / CCK / OFDM
  • Ethernet WiFi and MCU
  • Network Topology: AP and STA

Murata Type 1GC Wi-Fi module is an embedded network controller solution for consumer grade applications. It is enabled with Cypress Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) architecture. They host the Wi-Fi, TCP/IP network stack, security supplicant, and other network application features.
