The EMMY-W161 is recommended for applications that have co-located Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE
antennas and require co-existence of these wireless technologies. This module provides a dedicated BAW
bandpass filter instead of the ceramic bandpass filter. This filter rejects the adjacent LTE bands B40, B7,
B41 and B38. The integrated BAW filter is available only for the single-antenna configuration
(EMMY-W161). The module pinout, operating conditions, and electrical characteristics are identical for all
product variants. Differences in the RF parameters are explained in the Radio specifications section.

2 Interfaces
2.1
Operation mode configuration
EMMY-W1 series module uses the GPIO_3 and GPIO_2 pins as host interface configuration input to set the
desired operation mode following a reset. The definitions of these pins are changed to their usual functions after
reset. When you need to configure the pins for a certain module operation mode, you need to provide a 100 kΩ
pull down resistor to the ground. No external circuitry is required to set a configuration pin to high logical level.
External reset is not needed for proper operation due to internal power-up reset logic though it can be used by
the host controller through the PDn pin (active low) in case of an abnormal module behavior.
After reset, GPIO_3 and GPIO_2 pins can be used as open drain outputs (depending on firmware/driver version)
for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi activity LED indicators, but simultaneous usage of an LED connected to 3.3 V power line
and a pull-down resistor is not allowed (LED acts as a strong pull-up circuitry). Do not connect LED if you need
the pull-down resistors.
Depending on the firmware or driver used, you can use either one or both host interface operation modes:

3.2 Reset configuration
The EMMY-W1 is reset to its default operating state under the following conditions:



Power-on reset (POR) – Module receives power 3V3 supplies rise (triggers internal POR circuit)
Software/Firmware reset
External pin assertion (PDn) will generate POR.
High input impedance pin for minimizing shutdown current consumption. The pin shall be driven by the host controller or/and connected
via 51 kΩ (or less) pull-up resistor to the 3.3 V supply rail.
Possible to use as an LED output depending on the firmware and driver version. In this case, the module pin acts as an open drain output
and the whole LED circuitry must be supplied from 3.3 V power line. A LED current limiting resistor should be used; maximum sink current to
the ground is 10 mA. These pins can also be used for host interface configuration. See Operation mode configuration section.

7.1.1.1 Equipment classes
A multi-radio module is classified as class-1 or class-2 radio equipment depending on the frequency band in
which it can operate. This equipment class is inherited by the end-product that integrates the module, thus it
must be marked accordingly.
Class-1 radio equipment can be placed on the market and put into service without restrictions.
(Article 1 of Commission Decision 2000/299/EC of April 6 2000)
This multi-radio module is defined as class-1 radio equipment when it is restricted to operate in the
following frequency bands:

Bluetooth , ISM band 2400 – 2483.5 MHz

WLAN, ISM band 2400 – 2483.5 MHz
 WLAN, U-NII band-2e 5470 – 5725 MHz
Class-2 radio equipment includes restrictions applied by Member States as indicated in Article 1(2) of the
Commission Decision. This class uses the “Alert Sign” as an equipment class identifier.

EMMY-W1 series - User Manual
8.2.2 Mounting process and soldering recommendations
The EMMY-W1 series module is a surface mount module supplied on a 4-layer FR4-type PCB with gold plated
connection pins and produced in a lead-free process with a lead-free soldering paste. The wrap page of the PCB
is max. 0,75% according to IPC-A-610E. The thickness of solder resist on the host PCB top side and the
EMMY-W1 bottom side must be considered for the soldering process.
This module is compatible with industrial reflow profile for RoHS/Pb-free solders, Sn96.5/Ag3.0/Cu0.5 solder is a
right choice. Use of "No Clean" soldering paste is strongly recommended, cleaning the populated modules is
strongly discouraged - residuals under the module cannot be easily removed with any cleaning process. Cleaning
with water can lead to capillary effects where water is absorbed into the gap between the host board and
module. The combination of soldering flux residuals and encapsulated water could lead to short circuits between
neighboring pins.
Only a single reflow soldering process is permitted for host boards with the EMMY-W1 series modules.
The reflow profile used is dependent on the thermal mass of the entire populated PCB, heat transfer efficiency
of the oven and particular type of solder paste used. Since the profile used is process and layout dependent, the
optimum profile should be studied case by case. Recommendations below should be taken as a starting point
guide. In case of basic information necessity, please refer to J-STD-020C standard. }

8.2.3 ESD handling precautions
EMMY-W1 series modules are Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESD). Observe precautions for
handling! Failure to observe these precautions can result in severe damage to the Wi-Fi receiver!
Wi-Fi transceivers are Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESD) and require special precautions when handling.
Particular care must be exercised when handling patch antennas, due to the risk of electrostatic charges. In
addition to standard ESD safety practices, the following measures should be taken into account whenever
handling the receiver:

Unless there is a galvanic coupling between the
local GND (i.e. the work table) and the PCB GND,
then the first point of contact when handling the
PCB must always be between the local GND and
PCB GND.

Before mounting an antenna patch, connect
ground of the device

When handling the RF pin, do not come into
contact with any charged capacitors and be
careful when contacting materials that can
develop charges (e.g. patch antenna ~10 pF, coax
cable ~50-80 pF/m, soldering iron, …)

To prevent electrostatic discharge through the RF
input, do not touch any exposed antenna area. If
there is any risk that such exposed antenna area is
touched in non ESD protected work area,
implement proper ESD protection measures in the
design.

When soldering RF connectors and patch
antennas to the receiver’s RF pin, make sure to
use an ESD safe soldering iron (tip).
