Infineon AIROC CYW5551x combines Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth connectivity for IoT applications

Infineon Technologies is extending its AIROC portfolio with the AIROC CYW5551x Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5.4 solution.

This versatile family can deliver secured, reliable 1x1 Wi-Fi 6/6E (802.11ax) connectivity that goes beyond the standard, plus advanced ultra-low power Bluetooth (BT) connectivity.

The optimised CYW55512, a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 solution, and CYW55513, a tri-band Wi-Fi 6/6E solution, feature power-efficient designs that are suitable for smart home, industrial, wearables and other small form-factor IoT applications.

The CYW5551x family has been optimised for very low power consumption and is intended for battery-operated devices like wearables and IP cameras. Tuned for best performance across a wide temperature range, it can also serve industrial and infrastructure applications such as electric vehicle charging and solar panel controls.

The solution also offers support for the “greenfield” 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi 6E, delivering lower latency and reduced interference. Bluetooth 5.4 low energy (LE) with Audio is range and power optimised with up to 20 dBm transmit power.

Other features include improved multi-layer security (PSA Level 1-certifiable); and design versatility supported by a wide ecosystem of module and platform partners. As with other members of the AIROC CYW5551x family, the devices feature Linux, RTOS and Android support, and have a fully validated Bluetooth stack and sample code to accelerate development time.

Infineon’s AIROC CYW55512 and CYW55513 are sampling now.
