LILY-W1 Series - Host-based Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) modules

Compact host-based (front end) Wi-Fi modules with connection to a host via SDIO or USB interface and offering simultaneous operation as a station and a micro-access point for up to 8 clients.

u-blox LILY-W1 series compact Wi-Fi front-end modules include an integrated MAC/baseband processor and RF front-end components. The modules connect to a host via SDIO or USB interface.

They provide simultaneous operation as a station and a micro access point for up to 8 clients. In addition, the LILY-W132 also includes an on-board antenna and LTE filter to enable in-device co-existence without jeopardizing Wi-Fi performance.


  • Extremely small footprint
  • On‑board antenna (LILY-W132)
  • Integrated LTE filter (LILY-W132)
  • Micro access point feature for up to 8 clients
  • Wi‑Fi direct
