WBR2 is a low power embedded Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE combo module developed by Tuya Smart.

Scope of application

This topic describes relevant information about WBR2 module during MCU connection development.

WBR2 is a low power embedded Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE combo module developed by Tuya Smart. The module consists of a highly integrated radio-frequency identification (RFID) chip RTL8720CF, with a built-in Wi-Fi network protocol stack and various library functions. WBR2 also has low-power KM4 MCU, WLAN MAC, and 1T1R WLAN. The highest basic frequency is 100 MHz. The module has 256 KB built-in static random access memory (SRAM), 2 MB flash, and numerous peripheral resources. As a real time operating system (RTOS) platform, WBR2 integrates all function libraries of Wi-Fi MAC and TCP/IP protocols. You can develop your own embedded Wi-Fi products.

For more information, see WBR2 Module Datasheet.

Design specification

  • Module power supply:

    • When the module is in the working mode, the maximum transient current reaches 324 mA. It is recommended that the supply current of the 3.3 V module should exceed 400 mA.
    • In the PCB layout, capacitors C1 and C2 at the power input pin shall be arranged near the power supply pin. The capacitance shall exceed 10 uF.
  • Module pin:

    • There are no special pins. For more information, see WBR2 Module Datasheet.
  • Radio frequency (RF) of the module:

    • When a PCB onboard antenna is used in the Wi-Fi module, it is recommended that the distance between the module antenna and other metal parts should be at least 15 mm, in order to optimize the Wi-Fi performance. Wiring and copper pour are not allowed in the antenna area of the PCB, in order not to affect the antenna performance. Key points of layout:
      • Make sure that there is no substrate medium directly below or directly above the printed antenna.
      • Make sure that the printed antenna is away from the copper sheet. In this way, the antenna radiation effect is guaranteed to the maximum extent.
