over wireless networks. The IW62X solutions also offer real-time interactions
for cloud-based gaming devices, clients and services by providing
high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity needed for full 4k / 60 fps
“Today we’re delivering the industry’s leading 2x2 Wi-Fi 6
Dual Band + Bluetooth solutions, enabling both the gaming industry
and one of its most prominent console makers with Wi-Fi 6 for the first time,”
said Rafael Sotomayor, Executive Vice President of
Connectivity and Security at NXP. “This product announcement reinforces NXP’s
position at the cutting edge of connectivity and our ability to enable
advanced wireless capabilities for the future of gaming plus the exponential
growth in Wi-Fi 6 access points and IoT devices tethered to a single gateway.
Our IW62X family of integrated Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth solutions brings a
step-change in high performance and power efficient solutions for the
latest-generation of smart home IoT services, connected industrial
applications and the vast number of consumer devices that rely on
power-efficient Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to maximize the user
Driving the future of consumer and industrial IoT
NXP’s family of 2x2 Wi-Fi 6
Dual Band + Bluetooth solutions bring a dramatic boost in speed,
and a 4x increase in network capacity and a 2x increase in bandwidth over
previous generations of Wi-Fi. This increased capacity with reduced latency
supports a significantly higher number of users and devices connected to a
network or gateway.
These forward-looking features support a wide range of robust use cases,
AR/VR headsets, making full, completely wireless immersive experiences in HD
Multi-channel home theatre audio experiences with wireless speakers,
video-enabled smart assistants with full bandwidth to support seamless 4k
video interaction and content streaming.
Smart IoT hubs, appliances and accessories, outdoor and remote IP-enabled
Consumer, commercial, and industrial IoT solutions for home and building
control (smart lighting, building safety and security and climate control).
Expanded capabilities with NXP’s Wi-Fi 6 + BT/BLE and Wi-Fi 6 + BT/BLE-Audio
The BT/BLE radios support Bluetooth/BLE standards (BLE LR/2Mbps, BLE AoA/AoD,
BLE Mesh), independent Bluetooth connections and operational modes with
multiple external devices. These capabilities enable advanced smart hub and
smart home services that use Bluetooth-based positioning and Mesh
connectivity, providing support for numerous applications, including:
- Dual/independent wireless headset support.
Robust support of audio steaming (via stereo A2DP, Isochronous Channel).
Separate low-power peripheral / accessory control, including speaker, voice
assistant, audio hubs/soundbar, physical remote control and low-power device
Highest integration in the industry
The IW62X family features the highest level of integration in the market,
including 2.4 and 5 GHz dual band Power Amplifiers (PAs), Low Noise Amplifiers
(LNAs) antenna switches. It also includes a power management unit that
substantially reduces system-level BOM (Bill of Materials) and device board
area. while also simplifying chip-on-board and integrated-module designs.
NXP’s IW62X family of 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 Dual Band + Bluetooth solutions
are available for sampling now and soon from select module partners.
