Infineon’s AIROC™ Wi-Fi 6/6E family combines the most advanced Wi-Fi + Bluetooth® in a single chip. Operating in the 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz frequency bands, these radios interoperate with both new and older generations of access points and client devices.
The newly-opened 6GHz band (Wi-Fi 6E) offers a large number of channels in a relatively uncrowded frequency, enabling low latency and high performance for the most demanding applications. Infineon’s architectural innovations provide additional power efficiency and reliability across a variety of use cases.
This family includes products that can be combined with Infineon or third-party microcontrollers (MCUs) or with Linux-based Microprocessors (MPUs). Our flexible software architecture enables easy porting between different host platforms.
Infineon’s advanced Coexistence technology ensures reliable operation of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® to minimize performance degradation and connectivity issues when the two radios operate concurrently.
Infineon’s AIROC™ Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth® 5.x combo family expands our Wi-Fi leadership into 802.11ax including tri-band (2.4GHz, 5GHz, 6GHz) capability. Solutions include both 1x1 SISO and 2x2 MIMO configurations.
AIROC™ Wi-Fi 6/6E enables exceptional high-quality video/audio streaming and gaming experiences even in congested network environments, and significantly reduces latency operating in the 6GHz spectrum.
Additional technical benefits include increased range and network robustness. Infineon’s innovative architecture builds on the efficiency improvements in the Wi-Fi 6 specification with additional enhancements to improve battery life and overall user experience.
The unique benefits of AIROC™ Wi-Fi 6/6E enable advanced use cases including multichannel audio/video streaming, low-latency interactive video, and other high-throughput applications.
Our solutions feature enhanced power efficiency which is beneficial for battery-operated applications as well as small-form-factor designs where thermal control may be a concern.
