Celeno launches chip that combines Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Doppler Radar

Celeno Communications, a provider of smart Wi-Fi solutions, has launched a single chip solution that combines Wi-Fi 6/6E, BT/BLE (Bluetooth/ Bluetooth LE) 5.2 and Celeno’s innovative Wi-Fi Doppler Radar.

The CL6000 “Denali” product family provides a connectivity and sensing solution for devices such as consumer multimedia devices, IoT end points, home automation, industry automation, and healthcare applications.

These new chips enable cloud connectivity with the latest Wi-Fi 6/6E standard, audio streaming and on-boarding use cases with BT and BLE 5.2 support, and sensing functions to enrich edge AI with valuable sensed data through its Doppler Radar function.

The product family supports both Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E standards with the latest advancements driving improved latency and connectivity, in even the most crowded Wi-Fi deployments. These include high bandwidth 160MHz channels, the new, recently approved 6-7GHz spectrum band, MU-OFDMA, MU-MIMO, Beamforming, 1024QAM, WPA3 encryption and Target Wake Time (TWT) for more efficient device power saving.

The CL6000 is able to support true simultaneous operation of Wi-Fi connectivity and Doppler Radar - which is a Wi-Fi based, high-resolution sensing technology, that employs the Doppler effect and standard Wi-Fi packets.

The technology can track an object’s location or sense its presence or motion characteristics by using a single Wi-Fi device, without requiring the assistance of multiple devices or additional Wi-Fi clients. The solution leverages standard Wi-Fi and operates in the 5GHz and 6GHz bands, to “see” through walls without requiring line of sight and/or dependence on light conditions. In addition, the technology does not depend on any Wi-Fi clients, wearables of any kind and does not invade privacy.

“We are excited to bring this disruptive solution to the Wi-Fi industry,” said Gilad Rozen, CEO and Founder of Celeno. “Celeno has been recognized for its innovative Wi-Fi solutions for home networking infrastructure applications. Our new CL6000 product family extends our product portfolio into the large Wi-Fi client markets, bringing together connectivity and sensing into smart home, IoT and multimedia devices.”
