Hi all,

Does anyone have the orCad part library created for the CYW43455 and/or a recommended reference design for using the 2g/5g/bt SoC ?

Thanks

Thanks.  Our applications requires the use of an external antenna which sadly rules out most modules.  I will contact the local sales team.  Thanks

I am looking into where we are with regards to the broad market launch of the CYW943455EVB_02.

More to follow.

The CYW943455EVB_02 EVK will be released in conjunction with the next version of the SDK (v7.0). We normally provide schematic, gerber, BOM and layout files with each EVK release.

The EVK will leverage the Murata 1MW, which is a certified module based on the 43455.  As sgup​ alluded to, chip down un-certified designs are typically not supported within the broad market due to complexity.

Hi Jason,

Are you looking for orcad symbol for CYW43455 silicon or module? We do not recommend chip-on-board designs using Wi-Fi / combo devices due complexity involved to get best performance and design something that passes certifications. If you are looking for symbol for module, I would recommend to get in touch with the module vendor based on the module that you are using. If you have not selected a module yet, please refer to module the selector guide at IoT Solutions Guide

Let us know if that addresses your question.

Thanks

Thanks for this.  Looks like the module is about $25 which unfortunately puts it out of reach for our project.
