Does anyone know of a good module with both Wifi and Bluetooth?

I am currently trying to find a module that has WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities that is compatible with the ARM Cortex M0. So far I haven't had any luck finding one that supports both at the same time so help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Just noticed a new mbed platform, the Delta DFCM-NNN40 https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/Delta-DFCM-NNN40/ and thought it may be of interest.

If you Google "combination WiFi and Bluetooth module" you will find plenty of results like this https://www.u-blox.com/en/bluetooth-wifi-multiradio-modules/multiradio-wi-fi-bluetooth-modules/odin-w160-wi-fi-bluetooth-module.html. Depending on your application of course, it might be easier to use two separate modules like this https://developer.mbed.org/components/RN-42-Bluetooth-Module/ and this https://developer.mbed.org/components/Roving-Networks-WiFly-RN-171-XV/ but the ARM Cortex M0 may require two serial ports for this approach.

I have searched plenty which is why I came here for further assistance. I've seen the first link you posted as well and have contacted the company that makes it to see if it is compatible with the M0 since I couldn't seem to find it on their site. I have also found other ones as well, but they require a more robust processor than the M0. Also at this point it is in my best interest to get one module instead of two. But if I can't find one I will have to settle for two.
