ODIN-W2 - Versatile industrial IoT gateway modules

Stand-alone IoT gateway modules with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

The ODIN-W2 is a compact and powerful stand-alone multiradio module, designed for Internet-of-Things gateway applications. The module includes an embedded Bluetooth stack, Wi-Fi driver, IP stack, and an application for wireless data transfer, all configurable using AT commands. The wireless support includes dual-mode Bluetooth v4.0 (BR/EDR and low energy) and dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz bands).

The module supports point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations and can have concurrent Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections. It can operate in Wireless Multidrop™ or Extended Data Mode for advanced multipoint capabilities. Operation in Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) mode gives the host a UART-based IP interface for advanced use cases. The software provides support for RMII with a micro Access Point.

Using the EVK-ODIN-W262 Mbed evaluation kit, the module's integrated Cortex®-M4 with FPU can be accessed for integration of the customer application using Arm Mbed and to save external MCU, crystals, and PCB area in an end product.

Additionally, interfaces like SPI, I²C, CAN, and ADC are made available through the software libraries provided by the Arm Mbed development tool.

u-blox offers two types of evaluation kits for the ODIN-W2 multi-radio modules:


The EVK‑W262U makes the evaluation of the stand‑alone multiradio module ODIN‑W262 easy. The USB adapter board connects to a PC where a virtual COM port is installed. The evaluation kit is powered through the USB connector. The s‑center graphical user interface simplifies configuration and provides tools for performance evaluation and firmware upgrades.


  • USB 2.0 connector for virtual COM port interface and power
  • 3 Mbps UART interface
  • 5 LED indicators for status and activity
  • Reset button for quick rebooting
  • Serial and factory restore button for easy recovery from nonstandard settings
  • PC application for easy configuration and evaluation


The EVK‑ODIN‑W2 is designed for use with ARM mbed and is a complete starter kit that allows quick prototyping of a variety of applications for Internet of Things. The support for dual‑band Wi‑Fi, dual‑mode Bluetooth, and Ethernet enables easy connectivity for a wide range of applications.

Additional hardware interfaces such as CAN, SPI, I2C, UART, ADC, and GPIOs are available using ARM mbed. The EVK‑ODIN‑W2 can also be used to evaluate the pre‑loaded u‑blox software suite using the s‑center tool on a PC.


  • Available in two variants: EVK ODIN W260 and EVK ODIN‑W262
  • RJ45 Ethernet connector for ODIN‑W2 RMII‑PHY interface
  • Pin headers in 1.8 V I/O domain and Arduino sockets in 3.3 V I/O domain
  • Can be powered through USB or external power supply
  • Onboard ST‑Link v2.1 debugger
