WR6 is a low power-consuming built-in Wi-Fi module developed by Hangzhou Tuya Inc. It consists of a highly integrated RF microchip (RTL8710BN) and an external flash chip, with a built-in Wi-Fi network protocol stack and robust library functions.
WR6 also contains a low power-consuming ARM CM4F, a WLAN MAC, a 1T1R WLAN, and the maximum basic frequency of 125 MHz, and is embedded with a 256 KB SRAM, a 2 MB flash, and rich peripheral resources.
WR6 is an RTOS platform that integrates all the function libraries of the Wi-Fi MAC and TCP/IP protocols. You can develop built-in Wi-Fi products as required.
WR6 has two rows of pins (2 x 7) with a 2 mm pin pitch.
Dimensions (H x W x D) of WR6 are as follows: 4.8 mm x 37.8 mm x 21.7 mm. The figure below shows the dimensions of WR6.

WR6 supports onboard PCB antenna and external antenna. By default, the module uses an onboard
To ensure optimal Wi-Fi performance when the Wi-Fi module uses an onboard PCB antenna, it is recommended that the antenna be at least 15 mm away from other metal parts. To prevent adverse impact on the antenna radiation performance, avoid copper or traces along the antenna area on the PCB.
U.FL RF connector parameter as below:
PCB Size : 21.7±0.35mm (W)×37.8±0.35mm (L) ×1.0±0.15mm (H).
Use an SMT placement machine to mount the stamp hole module that Tuya produces onto the PCB within 24 hours after the module is unpacked and the firmware is burned. If not, vacuum pack the module again. Bake the module before mounting it onto the PCB.
Storage conditions for a delivered module are as follows:
Bake a module based on HIC status as follows when you unpack the module package:
Do not use SMT to process modules that have been unpacked for over three months. Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is used for the PCBs. If the solder pads are exposed to the air for over three months, they will be oxidized severely and dry joints or solder skips may occur. Tuya is not liable for such problems and consequences.
Before SMT placement, take electrostatic discharge (ESD) protective measures.
To reduce the reflow defect rate, draw 10% of the products for visual inspection and AOI before first SMT placement to determine a proper oven temperature and component placement method. Draw 5 to 10 modules every hour from subsequent batches for visual inspection and AOI.
Perform SMT placement based on the following reflow oven temperature curve. The highest temperature is 245°C.
