Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) today announced the company is extending its AIROC portfolio with the AIROC CYW5551x Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5.4 solution. The versatile family delivers secured, reliable 1×1 Wi-Fi 6/6E (802.11ax) connectivity that goes beyond the standard, plus advanced ultra-low power Bluetooth (BT) connectivity. The optimized CYW55512, a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 solution, and CYW55513, a tri-band Wi-Fi 6/6E solution, feature power-efficient designs ideal for smart home, industrial, wearables and other small form-factor IoT applications.
“Infineon’s new CYW5551x family brings the range, reliability, and network robustness from our 2×2 Wi-Fi 6/6E CYW5557x family of devices to an IoT optimized family,” said Sivaram Trikutam, Vice President of Wi-Fi Products of Infineon. “As part of the company’s digitalization and decarbonization strategy, this family is optimized for very low power consumption, making it ideal for battery-operated devices like wearables and IP cameras. Tuned for best performance across a wide temperature range, it serves industrial and infrastructure applications such as electric vehicle charging, solar panel controls, logistics and others”
The new 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-optimized 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.
