NXP’s new 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 solutions have been developed for applications that require high-performance Wi-Fi with low-latency over wireless networks. The IW62X devices also provide the high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity needed for full 4k / 60 fps gameplay in gaming applications.
“We’re delivering the industry’s leading 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 Dual Band + Bluetooth solutions, enabling both the gaming industry and one of its most prominent console makers with Wi-Fi 6 for the first time,” said Rafael Sotomayor, Executive Vice President of Connectivity and Security at NXP. “This product announcement reinforces NXP’s position at the cutting edge of connectivity and our ability to enable advanced wireless capabilities for the future of gaming plus the exponential growth in Wi-Fi 6 access points and IoT devices tethered to a single gateway. Our IW62X family of integrated Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth solutions brings a step-change in high performance and power efficient solutions for the latest-generation of smart home IoT services, connected industrial applications and the vast number of consumer devices that rely on power-efficient Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to maximize the user experience.”
The new family of 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 Dual Band + Bluetooth solutions boost speed, and provide a 4x increase in network capacity and a 2x increase in bandwidth over previous Wi-Fi generations. The increased capacity and reduced latency allows the connection of a higher numbers of users and devices to a network or gateway.
The BT/BLE radios found in the new family of devices offer support for Bluetooth/BLE standards (BLE LR/2Mbps, BLE AoA/AoD, BLE Mesh), independent Bluetooth connections and operational modes with multiple external devices. The IW62X range offers a high level of integration, with 2.4 and 5 GHz dual band Power Amplifiers (PAs), Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) antenna switches. The devoces also features a power management unit that reduces BOM and device board area, while simplifying chip-on-board and integrated-module designs.
