Is there a way to disable wifi mechanicly on the Udoo Quad?
Just unplug the module (it has only 1 screw).
Could you please tell me who is the Wi-Fi module / Chip vendor?
Also, what is the interface for the Wi-Fi module (SDIO/USB/PCIe?)
The Chip vendor is: gwf-3m08 while the interface for the Wi-Fi module is USB.
Great, the chip vendor is Ralink 5370. I am very ....very familiar with that
If you don't need the Wifi module, its 7-pin header can easily be used as a fourth USB port-- just skip pin 1 (closest to the rear of the board), and starting with pin 2 the signals are the same order as for USB port 3 on the 4-pin JST header: +5V, DN, DP, GND. See page 10 of the schematic, lower-left corner.
The only caveat is that the +5V power connection on this header, unlike the other USB ports doesn't seem to be protected by a fuse, so adding an in-line one somewhere between the header and your USB socket would be a good idea.
Separate names with a comma.
