Genio 350-EVK


This chapter describes platform-dependent information and instructions. For example, you will get different benchmark results on different platforms.

For general usage of Wi-Fi, such as command to configure DHCP or static IP and so on, please refer to Wi-Fi chapter.

Note

Cmd operations and test results presented in this chapter are based on the AIoT Yocto v22.1 and Genio 350-EVK.

Note

Genio 350-EVK in AIoT Yocto v21.3 supports WPA2 by default.

Wireless Interface on Genio 350-EVK

Important

AIoT Yocto - Genio 350-EVK does not support MT6631 companion chip. It only supports MT7663 modules. Module AW-CB451NF is used in this installation guide.

Install Wireless (Wi-Fi) Card on Genio 350-EVK

The MT7663 M.2 card supports WiFi5. The Bluetooth functionality is not supported by AIoT Yocto.

Important

AIoT Yocto does NOT provide official support for Bluetooth functionality on MT7663. Only the Wi-Fi connectivity features are supported.

There is a M.2 2230 slot on Genio 350-EVK board. It is reserved for wireless card. In the picture below, you can find 3 cables connect to the antennas on Genio 350-EVK and MT7663 card. These cables use I-PEX MHF4 (IPEX4) connectors. You should be able to find these 3 cables comes along with the Genio 350-EVK, which just fit the distances between the antennas and wireless card. (There are 2 black cables for Wi-Fi, and the other gray cable for bluetooth).

There are other MT7663 modules with 2 antennas instead of 3 antennas. In this case, simply leave the gray cable unconnected.
