"PB#: J47195-001" is silkscreened on the back of the card in the FCC photos.

  • Host Interfaces Wi-Fi: PCI based (Internal to the SoC)
  • Interfaces to the SoC Wi-Fi: CNVio (Intel propietary bus
inspired by the DPHY low power interface)
  • Intel corrected errors in CNVio trace numbers on M.2 2230
(pins 21 and 23 swapped) on April 2017


It is NOT a regular WiFi card, but just a dumb "Companion RF module", to Gemini Lake

"Pulsar" CNVi IP-core. So it Is NOT backward-compatible in the all senses.

«Jefferson Peak» is an implementation of "Companion RF module" for AC-9560.

Description of "Pulsar" and CNVi overall idea: CNViDetails

HW features Requirements[edit]

As it not a regular WiFi card it has as additional HW requirement

to support Pulsar IP-core.

Following Intel SoC devices include Pulsar:

- Cannon Lake PCH-LP
- Cannon Lake PCH-H
- Gemini Lake
