Strengthening the link between the real and the digital world
System design challenges solved on chip
Our Wi-Fi / Bluetooth Combo Chipsets and supporting software serve as application development platforms enabling multiple users to connect and seamlessly stream unique content to as many as 10 mobile devices simultaneously. The infotainment platforms include a Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth combo solution that features Infineon‘s Real Simultaneous Dual Band (RSDB) architecture. RSDB enables two unique data streams to run at full throughput simultaneously by integrating two complete Wi-Fi subsystems into a single chip. Wi-Fi 6 enables gigabit-level throughput and improves reliability for content streaming to multiple devices at once. Two Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth combo solutions empower car makers and automotive system suppliers with a scalable platform solution to address a wide range of vehicles with a uniform software architecture that minimizes development and system integration costs.
Premium infotainment systems require high-throughput, multi-role, concurrent operation to implement wireless mirroring for applications such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Mirrorlink. Infineon‘s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo solutions meet these needs and also offer simultaneous Wi-Fi Hotspot and content access, and multi-band/multi-radio coexistence for video and Bluetooth audio.
The CYW89459 2×2 Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 combo with RSDB enables more connected devices to the head unit and includes emerging features such as WPA3 security, Wi-Fi Location, and Wi-Fi Aware. Together with the cost-effective CYW89373 1×1 Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 combo, the portfolio services a mass market to luxury class vehicles with advanced wireless performance and medium coexistence management for an uninterrupted entertainment experience.
Our Wi-Fi / Bluetooth Combo Chipsets and supporting software are fully automotive qualified with AEC-Q100 grade-3 validation.

While infotainment generally encompasses in-car applications for Wi-Fi, telematics broadly deals with external Wi-Fi connectivity, which is the car connecting to an external Wi-Fi network. These could be home Wi-Fi networks when parked in the garage, public hotspots, car dealership Wi-Fi networks, or factory floor Wi-Fi networks.
Infineon’s industry-leading, automotive-qualified, Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® combo solutions drive Infotainment and Telematics systems in connected cars. It enables easy synchronization and streaming of data from mobile devices the car's infotainment system besides enabling high-speed connectivity beyond the vehicle. All automotive-grade, combo solutions have the latest generation IEEE 802.11ac-compliant WLAN PHY and dual-band (2.4 GHz/5 GHz) support. These features enable the bandwidth required for multiple in-car displays with resolutions of up to 1080p.
Components recommended for use in telematics control units are:
Automotive Wi-Fi: CYW89273
Bluetooth 5.0 SoC: CYW89820
