The WR1-IPEX is a low-power embedded Wi-Fi module developed by Hangzhou Tuya Information Technology Co., Ltd. The module consists of the highly integrated RTL8710BN chip and an external flash memory.
WR1-IPEX comes with a built-in Wi-Fi network protocol and a large number of library functions. The WR1-IPEX also includes low power ARM CM4F, WLAN MAC, 1T1R WLAN, a maximum frequency of 125MHz, built-in 256K SRAM, 1Mbyte flash, and a wealth of peripheral resources.
The WR1-IPEX is an RTOS platform that gathers all Wi-Fi MAC and TCP/IP libraries into one place. It enables users to build on the product and develop embedded Wi-Fi products that suit their individual needs.
The WR1-IPEX has 2 lines of pins (2x9) with a spacing of 1.5mm.
WR1-IPEX dimensions: 18 mm (W) x 23.5 mm (L) x 3.3 mm (H), which are shown below:
Conventional pins are defined as shown in Table 1:

There are two antenna access modes: PCB on-board antenna and external antenna. The default method is PCB onboard antenna.
To optimize the performance of the Wi-Fi module in combination with the PCB onboard antenna, it is recommended to keep the antenna at least 15mm from other metal parts.
U.FL RF connector parameters are shown in the figure below:
Dimensions of the PCB of WR1-IPEX: 18±0.35 mm (W)×23.5±0.35 mm (L) ×0.8±0.1 mm (H).
Note: The PCB frame tolerance is ±0.35 mm and the PCB thickness tolerance is ±0.1 mm.
The moisture-proof bag must be placed in an environment where the temperature is below 40°C and the relative humidity is lower than 90%.
The shelf life of a dry-packaged product is 12 months from the date when the product is packaged and sealed.
There is a humidity indicator card (HIC) in the packaging bag.
