WBR1 is a low-power embedded WiFi+BLE module that Tuya has developed. It consists of a highly integrated wireless RF chip (RTL8720CF), with an embedded WiFi network protocol stack and varied library functions. With the maximum CPU clock rate of 100MHz, WBR1 also contains a low-power KM4 microcontroller unit (MCU), a WLAN MAC, a 1T1R WLAN module, 256 KB static random-access memory (SRAM), 2 MB ﬂash memory, and extensive peripherals. WBR1 is an RTOS platform that integrates all function libraries of the WiFi MAC and TCP/IP protocols. You can develop embedded WiFi products as required.

WBR1 uses two types of antennas: onboard PCB antenna and external antenna. By defalut, the onboard PCB antenna is preferred. You can select either of them by configuring a resistance.
To ensure optimal WiFi performance when the WiFi module uses an onboard PCB antenna, it is recommended that the antenna be at least 15 mm away from other metal parts.
The RTL8720CF chip has requirements on the power-on sequence. It is recommended that the voltage rise from 0 to 3.3V within 40mS.

When designing a plate of a module, you should set a resetting IC at the foot of CHIP_EN in advance. The preferable type of IC is BL8506-27CRO. The module is packaged in the form of SOT23. The following shows a circuit (R30 is preset and cannot be placed).
The mechanical dimensions of PCB of WBR1 are 18±0.35 mm (W)×23.5±0.35 mm (L) ×0.8±0.1 mm (H). The following figure shows mechanical dimensions of WBR1.
Note: The default dimensional tolerance is ±0.35 mm. If you have specific requirements on dimensions, make them clear in the datasheet after communication.
The following figure is a schematic diagram of WBR1 which shows how pins correspond to each other.
WBR1 PCB Layout is shown as belows:
Use an SMT placement machine to mount the stamp hole module that Tuya produces onto the PCB within 24 hours after the module is unpacked and the ﬁrmware is burned. If not, vacuum pack the module again. Bake the module before mounting it onto the PCB.
A. SMT placement equipment
B. Baking equipment
Storage conditions for a delivered module are as follows:
The moisture-proof bag is placed in an environment where the temperature is below 30°C and the relative humidity is lower than 70%.
Bake a module based on HIC status as follows when you unpack the module package:
If the 30%, 40%, and 50% circles are blue, bake the module for 2 consecutive hours.
If the 30%, 40%, and 50% circles are pink, bake the module for 12 consecutive hours.
Baking temperature: 125±5°C
Rebaking condition: The module is not soldered within 12 hours after baking.
Do not use SMT to process modules that have been unpacked for more than 3 months. Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is used for the PCBs. If the solder pads are exposed to the air for more than 3 months, they will be oxidized severely and dry joints or solder skips may occur. Tuya is not liable for such problems and consequences.
Perform SMT placement based on the following reﬂow oven temperature curve. The highest temperature is 245°C. The reflow temperature curve is shown as belows: Refer to IPC/JEDEC standard; Peak Temperature: <245℃; The number of Times: ≤2 times

This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance 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 reception, 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 following measures: - Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. - Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. - Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. - Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Radiation Exposure Statement This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled rolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20cm between the radiator and your body.
Important Note: This radio module must not installed to co-locate and operating simultaneously with other radios in host system except in accordance with FCC multi-transmitter product procedures. Additional testing and equipment authorization may be required to operating simultaneously with other radio. The availability of some specific channels and/or operational frequency bands are country dependent and are firmware programmed at the factory to match the intended destination. The firmware setting is not accessible by the end user. The host product manufacturer is responsible for compliance to any other FCC rules that apply to the host not covered by the modular transmitter grant of certification. The final host product still requires Part 15 Subpart B compliance testing with the modular transmitter installed. The end user manual shall include all required regulatory information/warning as shown in this manual, including: This product must be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 20 cm between the radiator and user body. This device have got a FCC ID: 2ANDL-WBR1. The final end product must be labeled in a visible area with the following: “Contains Transmitter Module FCC ID: 2ANDL-WBR1”. This device is intended only for OEM integrators under the following conditions: 1) The antenna must be installed such that 20cm is maintained between the antenna and users, and 2) The transmitter module may not be co-located with any other transmitter or antenna. As long as 2 conditions above are met, further transmitter test will not be required. However, the OEM integrator is still responsible for testing their end-product for any additional compliance requirements required with this module installed.
