Type 1CX is a small and very high performance module based on Cypress CYW4356 combo chipset which support WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac 2x2 MIMO + Bluetooth 5.0 BR/EDR/LE up to 866Mbps PHY data rate on Wifi and 3Mbps PHY data rate on Bluetooth. The WLAN section supports PCIe v3.0 interface and the Bluetooth section supports high-speed 4-wire UART interface and PCM for audio data.

The CYW4356 implements highly sophisticated enhanced collaborative coexistence hardware mechanisms and algorighms, which ensure that WLAN and Bluetooth collaboration is optimized for maximum performance.

In IEEE 802.11ac mode, the WLAN operation supports rates of MCS0 - MSC9 (up to 256 QAM) in 20MHz, 40MHz and 80MHz channels for data rate up to 866Mbps.

Type 1CX module is packaged in an impressively small form factor that facilitates integration into size- and power-sensitive applications such as IoT applications, handheld wireless system, gateway and more.
