antenna solution (2.4 Ghz WLAN SISO/ Bluetooth/ 5 GHz single antenna), while reusing the
original certification, can do so by making sure that no RF comes out of the second antenna
port (2.4 MIMO only / 5 Ghz diversity). To do this, use the following requirements:
•
Leave the second module RF port open ( pin number 18 = N.C.)
•
In the WL1837MOD INI, make sure that only 1 antenna is selected for 2.4 GHz by
setting parameter NumberOfAssembledAnt2_4 = 1;

Antenna
This device is intended only for OEM integrators under the following conditions:
• The antenna must be installed so that 20 cm is maintained between the antenna and users.
• The transmitter module cannot be co-located with any other transmitter or antenna.
• The radio transmitter can operate only using an antenna of a type and maximum (or lesser) gain
approved by TI. Table 5 lists the antennas approved by TI for use with the radio transmitter along with
maximum allowable gain values. Antenna types not included in the list or having a gain greater than
the maximum indicated are strictly prohibited for use with this transmitter.

Hardware Troubleshoot
This section is intended to cover the basic hardware troubleshoot that you may come across bringing up
the WL18xxMOD on the final board; the device has several interfaces and sequences that must be kept in
order to operate the device in properly.

• Wireless Tool Package located at TI.COM
• Minimum requirements: PC running Pentium II
• Operating systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 7
• Serial communication port (RS-232) or USB port with UART-to-USB adapter (to enable the RS232
interface on the WiLink 8.0 IC)
• Access to WL_UART_DBG pin
• Access to BT_UART_DBG
• Access to RS232 Tx , RS232 Rx Pins

Hardware Troubleshoot
www.ti.com
Debug and calibration tools for WLAN and Bluetooth require four UART ports. The most efficient way to
drive these ports to the PC is to use a UART-to-USB converter (not included in the wireless tools
package). TI recommends using the WL18XXCOM82SDMMC SDMMC-to-COM8 adapter with the TI
WL1837MODCOM8I module or the WL1835MODCOM8B module on the COM8 board.
NOTE: Multiple UART-to-COM8 adapters are available on the market, such as the FTDI Chip
development modules.
9.2
Power Rails
There are two power rails that must feed into the WiLink system:
• VBAT - Main power supply source (typically 3.3 V - 3.6 V)
– VBAT should be connected to pin 46 and 47 of the module
• VIO - Voltage reference from host (1.8 V)
– VIO should be connected to pin 38 of the module
– Can be used for Level shifter supply and slow clock OSC supply

Sense on Reset
Wilink8 has several wake-up options that are entered through sense on reset by three IO's of the device:
IRQ_WL, UART_DBG_BT, AUD_OUT_BT.
Once Bluetooth or WLAN enable bit is set to high, the device checks the state of the lines and wakes up
in that specific mode.
There are only two modes or configurations that are supported by the device, all of the rest are prohibited
and the user must verify that there is no option on the system level to enter the prohibited modes.
The supported modes are:
• Operational mode:
– IRQ_WL = 0, UART_DBG_BT = 1, AUD_OUT_BT = 0
Operational mode is set by default using internal pull of WiLink (90K typical).
• Debug mode:
WLAN RS232 debug interface and Jtag interface are muxed out to the WiLink IO's by default,
nevertheless, this mode is only for debug a 10K resistor pull up place holder on the IRQ line should
be placed. It can be applied only in case the debug mode is required:
– IRQ_WL = 1, UART_DBG_BT = 1, AUD_OUT_BT = 0

NOTE: In order to avoid an undefined state of the device, be extremely careful when levelshifting those three I/Os to ensure that only those one of the two supported
configurations of the device are applied.

WLAN
9.5.1
WLAN Host Interface (SDIO)
The SDIO is the host interface for WLAN. The interface between the host and the WiLink module uses an
SDIO interface and supports a maximum clock rate of 52 MHz.
The device SDIO also supports the following features of the SDIO V3 specification:
• 4-bit data bus
• Synchronous and asynchronous in-band interrupt
• Default and high-speed (HS, 52 MHz) timing
• Sleep and wake commands
• The WLAN subsystem is controlled via an SDIO interface. The WLAN acts as a slave with the
processor as host. The host should generate the SDIO clock and read/write from the WLAN interface.
• Verify that the SDIO bus pins are connected to the host. These pins include:

SDIO clock input line. This line is generated by the host.
Host must provide PU using a 10-K resistor for all non-CLK SDIO signals.
In order to follow the wakeup/shutdown requirements, the WL_EN (pin number 40) should be
connected to host GPIO. Must be pulled high for WLAN operation. This GPIO should have internal
pull-up allowing the WiLink pin to remain high on host suspend. In order to enable WOW feature, a pull
up on the line is required during HOST shutdown.
IRQ_WL should be connected to host GPIO. This GPIO should be able to wake the host from
suspend, therefore it's better to always connect the pin (number 14) to the always on domain of the
Host. The IRQ_WL pin serves as interrupt generation from WiLink to the host.

NOTE: It is recommended to connect the SDIO directly to the 1.8 V SDIO interface on the host side.
In case Level Shifter is inevitable, see Level Shifting WL18xx I/Os Application Report
(SWRA448).
9.5.2
WLAN IRQ Operation (SDIO Out-of-Band Interrupt)
The WLAN IRQ is an out-of-band interrupt request line that is not defined by the SDIO standard
specification. Therefore, a good understanding on how it works is required in order to work with the WL8xx
solution.
The WLAN_IRQ line operates as follows:
• The default state of the WLAN_IRQ prior to device enable is internal 100K pulldown (in case of a
debug mode there is external 10K pull up)
• After the enable line is applied high, the WL_IRQ is changed to drive logic '0'.
• During firmware initialization, the WLAN_IRQ is configured by the SDIO module.
– The WLAN firmware creates an interrupt-to-host request, indicated by a 0-to-1 transition on the
WLAN_IRQ line (the host must be configured as active high or rising-edge detect).
– After the host is available, depending on the interrupt priority and other host tasks, it masks the
firmware interrupt. The WLAN_IRQ line returns to 0 (a 1-to-0 transition on the WLAN_IRQ line).
– The host reads the internal register status to determine the interrupt sources. The register is
cleared after the read.
– The host processes all the interrupts read from this register in sequence.
– The host unmasks the firmware interrupts.
• The host is ready to receive another interrupt from the WLAN device.

In case of host processor I/O is at 3.3 V, use a standard 245 level shifter and not a direction sensing
one. For more information, see Level Shifting WL18xx I/Os (SWRA448).
Once Bluetooth EN is asserted to high the Bluetooth FW stored in ROM start to execute, during this
time the RTS is driven high to prevent HCI transaction and not to interfere with device boot, once the
FW finish the boot process RTS line goes low after approximately 100 mS.
If logger is configured at this point, WiLink should print boot up message.

For bring up and evaluation of the module, the following should be connected:
• Pin out GPIO1 and GPIO2 for WLAN RS232 interface to enable RTTT tool for controlling RF test in the
absence of a host.
• There is a need to pull up WL_IRQ (10k pull up) at power-on to enable this RS232 UART interface.
• WLAN logger must have at least a TP to allow Wi-Fi Firmware logs to be captured by gLogger.
Requires a 1.8 V LVCMOS to USB cable for capture.
