The AW690 is a highly integrated Wi-Fi 6 device enabling concurrent dual Wi-Fi (CDW) and Bluetooth 5.3 operation.
Supporting a 1x1 CDW configuration in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, and 2x2 MIMO single-band operation, the
system-on-chip (SoC) provides a peak data rate of 1.2 Gbit/s and implements advanced features including MU-MIMO, OFDMA
and target wake time (TWT).
With integrated 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz TX power amplifiers (PA), RX low noise amplifiers (LNA) and Tx/Rx switches (T/R SW)
as well as a full Bluetooth radio, the AW690 simplifies the design and minimizes the PCB area.
The AW690 implements advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth coexistence hardware with algorithms to optimize
collaborative performance. In addition, support for external radio coexistence (for example, cellular) is provided
through an external interface.
With AEC-Q100 Grade 3- compliant options, the AW690 provides multiple host interface options for the
Wi-Fi radios (PCIe) and Bluetooth radio (UART) to provide a flexible design for easy integration into demanding
Wireless modules based on the NXP AW690 are offered by leading module manufacturers.
