UcRobotics is going to launch the IVY5661 96Boards IoT Edition board that features 802.11ac (WiFI 5) and Bluetooth 5 thanks to the UniSoC UWP5661 Arm Cortex-M4 WiSoC chip.

IVY5661 board specifications:

  • SoC – UniSoC UWP5661 dual core Arm Cortex-M4 microcontroller @ 416 MHz manufactured with 28nm process
  • Storage – 32Mbit NOR flash
  • Connectivity (built-in SoC) – Dual band 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi, Bluetooth 5
  • USB – 2x Micro USB
  • Expansion Interface – 96boards LS (Low Speed) connector with UART, I2C, SPI, I2S, GPIO
  • Misc – 4x user LED, 2x reset and user button
  • Power Supply – 5V via Micro USB port
  • Dimensions – 60 x 30 mm (96Boards IoT edition form factor)

The board runs Zephyr OS , and documentation should eventually become available in the product page on 96Boards website, now mostly filled with “coming soon” since the board has yet to launch.

Pricing and availability information are unknown for now, but most 96Boards are not known for their aggressive pricing so we’ll have to wait and see.
