ON Semiconductors' QCS-AX2 Chipset Family

ON Semiconductors has announced the availability of samples of their new QCS-AX2 chipset family that supports the 6GHz spectrum band based on the enhanced Wi-Fi 6E standard. The QCS-AX2 series is built on an integrated baseband and RF (radio frequency) architecture that supports the most important features of Wi-Fi 6E such as orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), advanced MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multi-Input, Multi-Output). They also include 160MHz channel support for faster speeds and SmartScan channel selection for maximum band utilization.

The QCS-AX2 chipset family consists of three devices QCS-AX2-A12(tri-band  (6GHz/5GHz/2.4GHz) with AdaptivMIMO technology supports flexible 8x8 or 4x4 configurations),  QCS-AX2-T12 (tri-band concurrent 4x4 operation for high performance, cost-effective router solutions), QCS-AX2-T8(tri-band concurrent 8-stream configurations for mesh nodes and mainstream access points).

The QCS-AX2 series has been designed with high performance, flexible architecture to maximize usage of the 6GHz band and they are optimized for high throughput Wi-Fi applications such as access points, gateways, and mesh networking solutions for dense environments and underserved areas.

ON Semiconductor’s Wi-Fi 6E solutions are designed to meet the transition of the 6GHz band with AdaptivMIMO technology at the same time it also addresses mainstream 6GHz applications. A Wi-Fi 6E infrastructure device with AdaptivMIMO allows the network to operate in the 5GHz or 6GHz band depending on the clients present in a subscriber’s home network to maximize performance, coverage, and utilization. The QCS-AX2 series can provide Wi-Fi performance and connectivity in very small environments to multiple devices if required. For more information about the QCS-AX2 series, visit the product page.
