NXP Semiconductors is laying the foundation for a new era of Wi-Fi 6 devices that operate in the 6GHz band with the help of the CW641 WiFi 6E Tri-Band System-on-chip (SoC). The new Wi-Fi 6E device will have a 6GHz band and extend Wi-Fi capacity by bringing higher throughput, increased capacity, reliability, and improved latency.


Targeting the access points and service provider gateways, the CW641 offers high speeds of over 4Gbps and multi-user performance in the 6GHz band. The 6GHz capabilities allow the service providers to efficiently partition available bandwidth across devices for a better user experience in a wide range of applications.


The transformative 6GHz spectrum of the new Wi-Fi 6E Tri-Band SoC boosts the performance of in-home mesh networks, streaming high-resolution music and videos, online gaming, video calling, digital downloads, data-heavy web content, and numerous other use cases. Apart from access point applications, the CW641 SoC can also support high-performance Wi-Fi 6E applications across consumer, automotive, industrial, and Internet of Things (IoT).


Features of CW641 Tri-Band SoC

  • 4x4 Wi-Fi device with 4-spatial streams
  • Supports 6GHz, 5GHz, and 2.4GHz operation
  • 160/80/40/20MHz channel bandwidth
  • Peak PHY rate of 4.8Gbps
  • Uplink and downlink OFDMA
  • Uplink and downlink MU-MIMO
