Fujitsu Components America today announced the release of a compact, 802.11a/b/g SDIO wireless LAN module with antenna diversity, low power consumption and reduced footprint.

Fujitsu’s MBH7WLZ23 wireless module provides a highly integrated communications platform for OEMs designing low-power, battery-operated wireless devices, especially where board space is very limited. This includes industrial handheld and POS terminals, portable healthcare devices, personal media devices, digital audio/visual devices, e-books, smart grid meters, and wireless meter readers.

The surface-mount module supports dual band (2.4GHz/5GHz) in a very compact package measuring just 12.0x12.0x1.8mm. Its diversity enhances signal coverage, yet in 802.11g transmitter mode is more efficient and is reduced by 50 percent in receive and idle modes, compared to existing products. It offers a maximum data rate of 54Mbps, with 18Mbps under Windows CE.
