NXP Semiconductors announced the availability of a comprehensive Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) portfolio, which significantly expands the number of products and markets able to adopt the latest Wi-Fi standards. The expanded portfolio represents the company’s new end-to-end vision and differentiated technology approach that is designed to help usher in an era of connectivity innovation for automotive, access, mobile and industrial and IoT markets.

Wi-Fi 6 delivers a wealth of additional connectivity improvements, including symmetric multi-gigabit uploads and downloads, dramatically lower latency, increased capacity and improved power efficiency across applications. These technical advancements have so far been limited to premium products. With NXP’s broad portfolio, these benefits are now available for large-scale deployment across multiple markets, enabling products with today’s most advanced Wi-Fi capabilities, including up to 4x performance improvement, greater range, improved battery life and greater connection reliability

“To deliver Wi-Fi 6 to broader markets, OEMs need Wi-Fi 6 options that scale to their needs. They need a family of products that matches the performance and cost needs of their different market segments,” said Rafael Sotomayor, senior vice president of Security and Connectivity at NXP. “With NXP’s latest connectivity solutions, we are making it easier for our customers to invest in our Wi-Fi 6 platform to add Wi-Fi 6 to smart homes, connected cars and industrial machinery. We are excited to see these markets reap the networking benefit of Wi-Fi 6.”

NXP Wi-Fi 6 portfolio highlights:

Performance leading 4x4 and 8x8-stream solutions with integrated Bluetooth 5 for home and enterprise access solutions (88W9064, 88W9068).

• Concurrent dual Wi-Fi 2x2+2x2 + Bluetooth 5 AEC-Q100 qualified solutions purpose-built for the highest-performance infotainment and telematics automotive applications (88Q9098).

• Concurrent dual Wi-Fi 2x2+2x2 + Bluetooth 5 solutions that provide a best-in-class offering for multimedia streaming and consumer access applications (88W9098).

• IoT-focused 2x2 WiFi 6 + Bluetooth 5 optimised for cost and power.

• NXP’s RF front-end solutions portfolio based on silicon germanium (SiGe) can scale Wi-Fi 6 capabilities from low- to high-end applications, including 1x1, 2x2, 4x4 and 8x8 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) solutions and is packaged in an ultra-compact 3 x 4 mm module optimised for mobile solutions.
