Cypress Expands its Leadership in Wireless Connectivity with New 802.11ac Solutions that Pave the Way for Mass Adoption in IoT Devices
Wi-Fi networks powered by 802.11ac simultaneously deliver low-latency and high-speed with secure device authentication, making them the ideal wireless technology for connecting things directly to the cloud. The new highly integrated Cypress CYW43455 advanced multi-radio wireless solution incorporates high-performance 802.11ac, low-power Bluetooth 4.2 and BLE. This combo solution is ideal for smart home products such as security cameras that require high-speed Wi-Fi combined with low power BLE connections for motion sensing.
The Cypress CYW54907 802.11ac microcontroller (MCU) integrates a high-performance 320-MHz ARM® Cortex®-R4 application processor and an advanced 802.11ac subsystem. This powerful dual-band solution offers bridging for IoT gateways and synchronized streaming audio solutions. Both solutions feature a dual-band 2.4- and 5-GHz radio with 20-, 40- and 80-MHz channels with up to 433 Mbps performance.
