Better streaming and connection quality: Rutronik expands portfolio with Intel® WiFi 6 modules

09/03/2020 Know-How

More performance thanks to new standard: The Intel® AX200-/ AX201 modules ensure smooth streaming of high-resolution video, fewer dropped connections and faster connections, even at greater distances from the router or in dense environments. This is possible by implementing the new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard with its features OFDMA, 1024QAM, Target Wake Time (TWT) and spatial reuse. The Intel® Wi-Fi 6 portfolio is available at

The AX200 features a PCIe interface for Wi-Fi and a USB interface for Bluetooth 5. Bluetooth® 5.1 offers a range of 4x over Bluetooth® 4.2 with the same Tx performance, enabling ubiquitous availability. It also doubles the speed of data rates, thereby reducing overall power consumption. It also improves data transmission, enabling seamless location-based services and easier pairing of Bluetooth® devices. The AX201 CRF module created for use with Intel‘s proprietary interface (CNVio2), matches therefore only with certain Intel® chipsets and platforms.  

Performance and security at the highest level 

Using Wi-Fi 6 technology with 1024QAM and 160 MHz channels, Intel® Wi-Fi 6 modules can deliver nearly three times the peak data rates (up to 2.4 Gbps) and up to four times the capacity improvement in dense or congested environments compared to Wi-Fi 5 (IEEE 802.11ac). The new IEEE 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDMA) and MU-MIMO (Multi User Multiple Input, Multiple Output) to ensure communication between the access point and multiple devices.

In addition to the improved performance, the new WPA3 features provide state-of-the-art authentication and military-grade encryption, creating a secure environment for sensitive data traffic.

The M.2 2230 form factor modules are designed for flexible system configuration and platform usage by using a standard Key-A or Key-E socket. M.2 1216 modules, on the other hand, enable space-saving platform design.
