1 General Description
The AMW007 module from Zentri provides an advanced
stand-alone Wi-Fi and networking solution.
An integrated module avoids difficult RF layout and ena-
bles designers to rapidly embed Wi-Fi and secure net-
working functionality into virtually any device.
The ZentriOS embedded connected operating system,
pre-programmed into all modules, may be used to fast-
track module integration into end-products.
With dimensions of just 12mm x 11mm and a wide tem-
perature range, the module is suitable for integration
into most embedded applications.
The Wi-Fi device includes an integrated RF transmit
power amplifier and provides superior Wi-Fi perfor-
mance and full compatibility with all 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n
Wi-Fi networks.
The AMW007 microcontroller core operates at a fre-
quency of 160MHz.
The AMW007 module offers extensive I/O and periph-
eral interfaces listed below, and provides
additional interface combinations by leveraging
multiplexing and alternate function capabilities.
1 x 4-Wire UART interface
8 x GPIOs
1 x 10-bit A/D converters
4 x PWM outputs
1 x ultra-low power wake input
The module is powered by a single 3.3V power supply.
Various powersave modes offer ultra-low power opera-
tion. Wake from low power sleep mode is possible using
IO pins or the internal real-time clock, and wake from ul-
tra-low power standby mode is achieved using the dedi-
cated wake pin.
The module has numerous modular approvals. See Sec-
tion 7, Regulatory Certification.

3.4 Digital IO Characteristics
All digital IO pads are bidirectional, non-inverting and tri-state. Each pad includes an input and an output buffer with
tristate control inputs. When the AMW007 is powered down, all output enable signals can be set to hold high or low
to minimize power consumption.
The hold functionality introduces some positive feedback into the pad. Hence, the external driver that drives the pad
must be stronger than the positive feedback. The required drive strength is however small in the range of 5uA.

6.2 Recommended PCB Footprint
All dimensions in Figure 4 are in millimeters unless otherwise marked.
Figure 4. AMW007 Recommended Footprint (Top)
6.3 Routing Recommendations
When designing a carrier board, the addition of ground fill directly underneath the AMW007 module, rather than signal
or power traces, is recommended. All ground pads adjacent to antenna pins must be connected to a solid ground
plane. Failure to comply with these recommendations may result in degraded performance of WLAN functionality.

Wire Antenna
A suitable wire antenna is an 18-gauge wire with a length
of 25.4mm ± 2mm. The wire antennas should be perpen-
dicular to the carrier board.
NOTE! Do NOT bend antennas backwards over the mod-
ule; doing so will cause poor performance and may cause
undesirable out-of-band radio transmissions.
Chip Antenna
The AMW007 is certified for use with a chip antenna

6.7 Power Supply
The AMW007’s typical transmit current requirement is
200mA. To handle sudden demand for this typical cur-
rent, we recommend a power supply capable of deliver-
ing a continuous 300mA.
We also recommend bypass capacitors to meet instanta-
neous power requirements. For design guidelines on by-
pass capacitors, see the AMWx06 Hardware Design
Guide, which also applies to the AMW0x7 regarding
characteristics and placement of capacitors. Note that
references to specific pin numbers should be adjusted
for the AMW007 and AMW037.

6.8 Application Examples
Operation using ZentriOS
Each AMW007 module is pre-installed with and li-
censed to use ZentriOS-WL, Zentri’s feature-rich and
reliable Wi-Fi networking application. The module can
be used with an external host microcontroller via the
serial interface command API.
For more details see https://docs.zentri.com/zentrios.
To use ZentriOS with a host processor, the module only
requires an external connection to power and a UART
serial interface. A host processor connects to the UART
(pins 7/8) as shown in Figure 12. Zentri recommends
UART hardware flow control (RTS/CTS) is used to im-
prove the reliability of data communications.
GPIO0 is the default factory reset pin. In order for the
module to boot normally (and avoid factory reset), the
GPIO0 pin must be pulled or driven to ground during a
reset. A 100k pull down resistor on this pin is recom-
mended.
The CHIP_EN pin must be pulled to 3V3 to enable ZentriOS
to boot. A 100k pull up resistor is recommended if this pin
is not driven by an external host MCU.
The WAKE pin is an output from the module, and may be
used to wake the module from deep sleep. Connect WAKE
to RESET_N using a 1k resistor to enable sleep/wake func-
tionality. This connection is not required if sleep/wake
functionality is not used, or a host MCU has explicit control
of the RESET_N pin.
Hardware Design Guidelines
For hardware design guidelines, see:
Zentri online documentation, AMWx06 Hardware Design
The general guidelines for the AMWx06 devices apply to
all Zentri devices.
Pin numbers should be adjusted for actual device used.

7.1 United States
The Zentri AMW007 module has received Federal Com-
munications Commission (FCC) CFR47 Telecommunica-
tions, Part 15 Sub-part C “Intentional Radiators” modular
approval in accordance with Part 15.212 Modular Trans-
mitter approval. Modular approval allows the end user
to integrate the AMW007 module into a finished product
without obtaining subsequent and separate FCC approv-
als for intentional radiation, provided no changes or
modifications are made to the module circuitry. Changes
or modifications could void the user’s authority to oper-
ate the equipment. The end user must comply with all of
the instructions provided by the Grantee which indicate
installation and/or operating conditions necessary for
compliance.
The finished product is required to comply with all appli-
cable FCC equipment authorization, regulations, require-
ments, and equipment functions not associated with the
transmitter module portion. For example, compliance
must be demonstrated to regulations for other transmit-
ter components within the host product; to require-
ments for unintentional radiators (Part 15 Sub-part B
“Unintentional Radiators”), such as digital devices, com-
puter peripherals, radio receivers, etc.; and to additional
authorization requirements for non-transmitter func-
tions on the transmitter module (i.e. Verification, or Dec-
laration of Conformity) (e.g., transmitter modules may
also contain digital logic functions) as appropriate.
Labeling and User Information
Requirements
The AMW007 module has been labelled with a unique
FCC ID number, and if the FCC ID is not visible when the
module is installed inside another device, then the out-
side of the finished product into which the module is in-
stalled must also display a label referring to the enclosed
module. This exterior label can use wording as follows:
Contains FCC ID: 2ABPY-5B9198
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference re-
ceived, including interference that may cause unde-
sired operation.

If the exterior label area is smaller than the palm of the
hand, the end product user manual must contain the
above statement. The user manual should contain the
following additional statement:
The Host Model Number (HMN) must be indicated at any
location on the exterior of the end product or product
packaging or product literature which shall be available
with the end product or online.
Additional information on labeling and user information
requirements for Part 15 devices can be found in KDB
Publication 784748 available at the FCC Office of Engi-
neering and Technology (OET) Laboratory Division
Knowledge Database (KDB.
For products available in the USA/Canada market, only
channels 1 to 11 can be operated. Selection of other
channels is not possible.
This module is intended for OEM integrators. The OEM
integrator is responsible for compliance in all the rules
that apply to the product into which this certified RF
module is integrated.
Additional testing and certification may be necessary
when multiple modules are used.
RF Exposure
All transmitters regulated by FCC must comply with RF
exposure requirements. OET Bulletin 65, Evaluating
Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to
Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, provides assis-
tance in determining whether proposed or existing
transmitting facilities, operations or devices comply with
limits for human exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) fields
adopted by the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC). The bulletin offers guidelines and suggestions for
evaluating compliance.
If appropriate, compliance with exposure guidelines for
mobile and unlicensed devices can be accomplished by
the use of warning labels and by providing users with in-
formation concerning minimum separation distances
from transmitting structures and proper installation of
antennas.
The following statement must be included as a CAUTION
statement in manuals and OEM products to alert users
of FCC RF exposure compliance:
If the AMW007 module is used in a portable application
(i.e., the antenna is less than 20 cm from persons during
operation), the integrator is responsible for performing
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) testing in accordance
with FCC rules 2.1091.
This equipment has been tested and found to com-
ply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursu-
ant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are de-
signed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio fre-
quency energy and if not installed and used in ac-
cordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television re-
ception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or more of the fol-
lowing measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equip-
ment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a cir-
cuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
To satisfy FCC RF Exposure requirements for mobile
and base station transmission devices, a separation
distance of 20 cm or more should be maintained be-
tween the antenna of this device and persons dur-
ing operation. To ensure compliance, operation at
closer than this distance is not recommended.
The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not
be co-located or operating in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.

This device complies with Industry Canada license-
exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) this device may not
cause interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference, including interference that may
cause undesired operation of the device.
Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie
Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de
licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux
onditions suivantes: (1) l'appareil ne doit pas
produire de brouillage, et (2) l'utilisateur de l'appa-
reil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique
subi, meme si le brouillage est susceptible d'en com-
promettre le fonctionnement.
Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio trans-
mitter may only operate using an antenna of a type
and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the trans-
mitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio
interference to other users, the antenna type and its
gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotrop-
ically radiated power (EIRP) is not more than that
necessary for successful communication.
Conformément à la réglementation d'Industrie Can-
ada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec
une antenne d'un type et d'un gain maximal (ou infé-
rieur) approuvé pour l'émetteur par Industrie Can-
ada. Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouil-lage
radioélectrique à l'intention des autres utilisa-teurs,
il faut choisir le type d'antenne et son gain de sorte
que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente
(p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l'intensité nécessaire à
l'établissement d'une communication satisfaisante.
