Wi-Fi 4 solution with next generation WPA3 security

Infineon Technologies has expanded its portfolio of high performance and secured IoT solutions with one of the industry’s only dedicated Wi-Fi 4 solutions to deliver the latest WPA3 security standard.

The CYW43439 solution is intended to make it easier for product designers to comply with new security regulations currently emerging worldwide, many of which are looking to give more privacy rights to consumers, including the right to know about the personal information a business collects, and the right for that information to be deleted.

As most IoT products function effectively with the basic connectivity implemented by Wi-Fi 4, the standard will remain the workhorse of IoT designs for years to come. Approximately half a billion new devices are expected to ship implementing Wi-Fi 4 through 2025, according to ABI Research. As a result, there will be an ongoing need for these devices to support the latest features, such as WPA3. It allows more robust authentication, increased cryptographic strength and more resilient mission-critical networks. Using the Infineon CYW43439, designers can provide connectivity, while implementing the security their products need with the WPA3 security standard.

The CYW43439 is both robust and power-efficient and comes with worldwide certifications and certified interoperability. The product family offers cross-platform features for RTOS, Linux, and Android, and development support for software that includes advanced smart-coexistence for multi-user Wi-Fi and Bluetooth applications, enabling multiple connections simultaneously including BLE Mesh networking.

The devices reduce system power consumption by providing Host SoC off-load processing for network management and audio applications reducing CPU loading. Its optimised software for library-based functions allows connections to mobile devices or any cloud service at any time.

Infineon’s CYW43439 with ModusToolbox software gives designers access to an adaptable development system for IoT, including carefully packaged solutions supporting popular ecosystems and cloud management tools.
