Use Infineon Wi-Fi Module on reComputer


In this document, you will learn how to use Infineon’s Wi-Fi 6/6E module on reComputer J4012.


reComputer J4012 is built with Jetson Orin NX 16GB a powerful and compact intelligent edge box to bring up to 100 TOPS modern AI performance to the edge, which offers up to 5X the performance of Jetson Xavier NX and up to 3X the performance of Jetson AGX Xavier. Combining the NVIDIA Ampere™ GPU architecture with 64-bit operating capability, Orin NX integrates advanced multi-function video and image processing, and NVIDIA Deep Learning Accelerators.

Infineon Wi-Fi Module

Infineon’s Wi-Fi solution supports Wi-Fi 6/6E features, is tri-band capable (2.4G, 5G, 6G). Its features improve range, power efficiency, network robustness, and security, while reducing the total Bill of Materials cost and board space. The solution delivers an exceptional high-quality video/audio streaming and seamless connectivity experience in congested network environments and significantly reduces latency by operating in the 6G spectrum.

Hardware connection

Step 1. Prepare all materials that will be used.

  • reComputer J4012 equipped with Jetpack 5.1.2
  • Infineon Wi-Fi Module
  • 2 x IPEX to SMA Female External Antenna Adapter and SMA Male Antenna for WIFI Module
  • Phillips screwdriver and screws

Step 2. Insert the wireless module into the M.2 Key E port. And insert 2 IPEX plugs into the corresponding sockets of the wireless module.

Install the software driver

Step 1. Download and upload the Infineon WiFi driver and hostap installation package to reComputer.

Step 2. Open a terminal on reComputer and run the following command to install the Infineon hostap(wpa_supplicant/hostapd) package,you only need to run this step once:

sudo killall wpa_supplicant
sudo dpkg -i ifx-hostap-jetson-2.10-arm64.deb

Step 3. Run the following command to run Infineon WiFi driver, you need to run this step after system boot up every time:

sudo dpkg -i cyw55573-jetson-orin-agx-1.0-1-arm64.deb

Step 4. Use the following command to check if the wlan0 interface is available:


Step 5. Connect to Wi-Fi network
