WiFi Chipsets

The CL2xxx series are future-ready, powerful, highly integrated, 802.11ac wave 2 single chips implementing full 802.11ac Wave 2 functionality including MU-MIMO, 160MHz channel support, beamforming and 2, 3 or 4 Spatial Streams. They integrate both a CPU and memory to run more of the wireless LAN functions on-chip, delivering a strong host offloading solution with no need for costly external memories. Employing new MAC and PHY improvements to perfect throughput in dense environments, the CL2xxx series significantly raises the bar on Wi-Fi performance, range and reliability.

The CL80x0 are high-performing, highly integrated Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) PCIe chips that deliver best Wi-Fi network performance for their size by combining two Wi-Fi 6 radios into a single 11x11mm PCIe chip. The chip employs two concurrent dual-band Wi-Fi 6 radios with 4T4R to 8T8R ElasticMIMO™ architecture that can drive aggregated PHY/ Data Link speeds up to 6Gbps. ElasticMIMO™ architecture enables dynamic runtime allocation of the radio chains and MIMO streams between the two radios for best performance and coverage leveraging adaptive optimization engine. The two independent radios can function as access point, client, AP/CLI or dedicated spectrum intelligent engine.
