2x2 Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Dual-Band + Bluetooth/BLE Solutions

NXP Semiconductors has introduced a set of wireless solutions under the IW62X family, a family of 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Dual-Band + Bluetooth/BLE solutions for advanced gaming, audio, industrial, and IoT markets. The new solutions are ideal for IoT hubs, wireless speakers, video-enabled smart devices, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) devices, and a universe of additional IoT applications.

The 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 solutions offer high performance in the advanced gaming controllers with near-zero wireless controller lag time and low latency multiplayer gaming experiences through wireless networks. These solutions offer real-time interactions for cloud-based gaming devices, clients, and services by providing high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity needed for full 4k / 60 fps gameplay.

The new family of devices offers increased speed, 4x increased capacity, and 2x increased bandwidth than the previous solutions. This allows a high number of users and devices to connect to a network or gateway. The Bluetooth/BLE supports various Bluetooth/BLE standards (BLE LR/2Mbps, BLE AoA/AoD, BLE Mesh), independent connections, and operational modes with multiple external devices.

The IW62X comes with 2.4 and 5 GHz dual-band Power Amplifiers (PAs), Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) antenna switches along with a power management unit that reduces the BOM and device board area. NXP’s IW62X family of 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 Dual-Band + Bluetooth solutions are available for sampling now and soon from select module partners.
