NXP Semiconductors has announced the availability of a comprehensive Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) portfolio, which expands the amount of products and markets capable of adopting the latest Wi-Fi standards. The company's expanded portfolio outlines the company’s new end-to-end vision and differentiated technology approach that is intended to assist in ushering in an era of connectivity innovation for automotive, access, mobile, industrial and IoT markets.
Wi-Fi 6 provides a wealth of extra connectivity improvements, incorporating symmetric multi-gigabit uploads and downloads, lower latency, improved capacity, and enhanced power efficiency over applications. These technical improvements have so far been restricted to premium products. With the company’s wide portfolio, these benefits are now provided for large-scale deployment over multiple markets, providing products with the most advanced Wi-Fi capabilities.
“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.”
