LM006 Nano WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter 150Mbps

The LM006 Nano WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter is a powerful 150Mbps dongle that also fully supports the functional compliance of IEEE 802.11 e and i standards and therefore can be used across IEEE 802.11 bands g n e and iThe LM006 Nano WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter is supplied with a comprehensive driver package and its own software program that is compatible with Windows: CE7, XP, VISTA, Win 7 and W8. As many W8 WLAN dongles are now supplied a W8 driver at extra cost. In addition to windows the WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter also supports Linux and Apple PC’s and is compatible with: Linux MAC OSX 10.4-10.8 Linux Kernel2.6.18~2.6.38 and Kernel 3.0.8The LM006 is available as Adapter only or in a clamshell retail package with CD that has Software, Driver and Manuals.The LM006 Nano WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter uses a Realtek Realtek RTL8188CUS IC alongside an LM qualified list of components which enables the dongle to work at temperatures between -20°c degrees to +70°c and able to withstand -40°c storage. We have also conducted temperature testing within a barometric chamber at -40°c and sustained a continuous working environment. Although as the IC on the PCBA is not qualified to work at such a temperature we would not be able to obtain certification at this temperature

LM006 Nano WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter 150Mbps

The LM006 Nano WLAN USB 802.11 n Adapter has a maximum distance of 180m outdoors and 80m indoors. In order to obtain 150Mbps bandwidth the dongle broadcasts on 2.4 GHz when using maximum bandwidth. The dongle also incorporates technology which improves effective throughput and range, over existing 802.11 g and is designed to provide excellent performance with minimum power consumption and enhance the advantages of robust system and cost effectiveness. It is targeted at superior performance, better power applications.Current certifications are FCC, R&TTE CE, The hardware can be offered with or without Retail packaging and can be branded for your company.
