This is the wireless module for at least the...

  • Apple MacBook Pro w/ Retina display (2012)

The PCIe connector for this device is proprietary (see external links below for more info).

This module is using the following components...

  • BCM4331 (BCM4331KML1G [P21], different chip pkg. from the standard BCM4331KMLG)
    • w/ 2 Skyworks SE5515 Dual Band Front End Modules (FEMs)
    • w/ 1 Skyworks (SiGe) SE5019T 5GHz Power Amplifier (PA)
    • w/ 1 Skyworks (SiGe) SE2598L 2.4GHz Power Amplifier (PA)
  • BCM20702 r. A3 Bluetooth SoC (USB)

The antenna connector used for this card is presumed to be MHF4.
