just a quick note, the x30 (dell) has a bluetooth module and wifi on a seperate card, the wifi sits on the CF interface and the bluetooth on the serial. if only i had a pinout as it would just about fit in a cf slot
This morning my x30's screen was smashed when it fell. I took apart the unit and the bluetooth/wifi combo module is really really small - 22mm x 29mm x 3mm (let me know if you want pictures). Smashed x30 (did x3 have the same module?) could be a great source of these modules if somebody figures out if they can work in Zaurus. They have a nice neat connector that could be used to make everything neat. Can the module's connector pins be traced on the x30 motherboard?
Below is all the info that I could find for this module (I don't understand what it means but maybe it would be helpful to somebody):
Both wireless modules are built into the one pcb (removable) P/N:COMBO SIP 6325-600026-02 is a USI COMBO Sip
>>>>802.11B+Bluetooth COMBO SiP module (WM-BB-AG-01)
The USI 802.11 SiP Wireless module WM-BB-AG-01 which refers as “COMBO-SIP module” is the smallest wireless module in the world with full function 802.11b and Bluetooth class 2 on a 22* 29 mm tiny module. This multi- functionality and board to board physical interface provide system users the maximum flexibility including system feature and system integration.
WM-BB-AG-01 is approved as one of USI embedded Wi-Fi module product lines. There are two product variants of WM-BB-AG-01 by de-populating either 802.11b or Bluetooth to be a single module which provided better cost-feature on system with single design-in effort.
The small size design (22*29*3.5 mm), low power consumption (Typical 340 mA) and excellent radio performance make it the best solution which is suitable for OEM customers who require embedded 802.11b Wi-Fi plus BlueTooth features, such as, Wireless PDA, Barcode scanner, mini-Printer, VoIP phone etc.
For the hardware features, Agere “802.11” chipset solution is adopted for 802.11b, and CSR BlueCore 02 for 802.15. Two antenna connectors provide antenna connectivity for each function.
In additional to the classic radio design, physical signaling between Bluetooth and 802.11b functional block and channel skipping technology from CSR provides the best performance when Bluetooth and 802.11b function at the same time.
For the software and driver development, USI provides extensive technical document and reference software code for system integration. Hardware evaluation kit and development utility will be released base on listed OS and processors to OEM customers under agreement for development.
• Small size suitable for low volume system integration.
• Low power consumption, extend battery life.
• 2.412~2.484 GHz frequency band.
• Support hardware signaling and channel skipping for co-existence scheme.
• Easy for integration into mobile and handheld device with flexible system configuration and antenna design.

The WLAN chip set is Agere
The Bluetooth chip set is CSR Bluecore2
The interface to the WLAN is compatible with CompactFlash (PCMCIA)
The interface to the Bluetooth is high speed UART with RTS, CTS, TXD, and
RXD lines. Using one of the three UARTS available on the PXA270. You should
be able to a standard CSR serial driver for Blue Core 2 as a starting point
if there is currently no LINUX driver..
The Lattics CPL is probably used to provide the buffering between the PXA270
memory bus and the CF interface for the combo module WIFI interface, not
address decoding which is done inside the PXA270.
By the way it appears that a Chinese company HUATENG TECHNOLOGY LIMITED (http://ht.hkinventory.com) sells them. Do you think they can also provide documentation with it? See their contact info here: http://ht.hkinventory.com/eCatalog/hisende...TENG+TECHNOLOGY
