Quectel launches ultra-compact FCM360W Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 module ideal for smart homes and industrial IoT use cases

Vancouver, 6 June 2023 – Quectel  Wireless Solutions, a global IoT solutions provider, has launched its latest  Quectel FCM360W  Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module, combining a high-performance processor with Wi-Fi  6 and Bluetooth 5.1 capabilities. With large memory including 512KB SRAM and  4MB of flash memory, the FCM360W is highly versatile, offering a blend of  processing power, memory, connectivity and security.

The module features  standard security features such as WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK and WPA3-PSK security  standards and provides 128-bit AES encryption for added security. The FCM360W  supports multiple interfaces including UART, SPI, I2C, I2S, ADC and PWM  alongside many low power consumption modes and keep-alive mechanisms, making  it ideal for smart homes and industrial IoT (IIoT) use  cases.

Quectel’s FCM360W  Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 module is offered in an LCC form factor with an  ultra-compact package size of 25.5mm x 18.0mm x 3.2mm, providing great  flexibility for developers. The module offers support for multiple interfaces  across 19 GPIOs, allowing for multi-channel SSL connections and local caching  of large amounts of data. This makes it ideal for use cases such as  photovoltaic inverters, energy storage batteries and other smart devices that  require long-term data monitoring and storage. Additionally, the module has  an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and comes with antenna  options that include RF coaxial connector, external antenna pin or PCB  antenna.

“We’re proud to launch the Quectel FCM360W to  help enable a wide range of smart home and industrial IoT devices,” said  Norbert Muhrer, President and CSO, Quectel Wireless Solutions. “By bringing  together Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 in a compact form factor yet with a  high-performance processor and large memory, we’re providing greater choices  and flexibility for developers and device OEMs. With added support of  QuecOpen and its powerful processing capabilities and array of interface  options, the FCM360W is an excellent option for developers looking for a  compact, versatile, and secure module for their IoT devices,” Mr. Muhrer  continued.
