The VL-MPEe-W2 is an extremely small and rugged Wi-Fi module based on the industry-standard Mini PCIe module half-size format. Unlike typical I/O expansion boards, Mini PCIe allows additional I/O functions to be added to a system with almost no increase in overall system/package size. Mini PCIe modules provide a simple, economical, and standardized way to add I/O functions to embedded computer products.


In a very small package, this Wi-Fi board enables high speed wireless networking.

This Wi-Fi module delivers premium Wi-Fi performance. This dual-stream (2x2), dual-band, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi product with Wi-Fi Direct combines faster speeds (up to 300 Mbps), greater range, and more reliability. Intel® Wireless Display enables display output over a simple wireless connection. Intel® My Wi-Fi Dashboard enables data sharing directly with other Wi-Fi devices without WLAN or hotspot access. Supports Intel® vPro Technology, Intel® Active Management Technology, and Intel® PROSet/Wireless Enterprise Software for enterprise Wi-Fi client manageability, improved security, and streamlined deployment.

This rugged product is designed and tested for full industrial temperature operation (-40º to +85ºC). It also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration, making it at home in harsh environments.

This Wi-Fi board is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, and Linux.

The module utilizes PCIe signaling and can be used in any system that supports PCIe signaling at the Mini PCIe socket.
