Cypress: wireless combo solution for IoT applications

Posted 6 June 2017

Cypress Semiconductor announced a new wireless solution that combines 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for IoT applications. The new highly integrated solution incorporates a USB 2.0 hub that provides a common WLAN and Bluetooth interface.

The CYW4373 combo solution features a dual-band 2.4- and 5-GHz radio with dynamic channel selection of 20-, 40- and 80-MHz channels, supporting up to 433 Mbps performance, and it includes a separate Bluetooth/BLE 4.2 subsystem. The solution simplifies system design with a common USB hub or shared SDIO interface to the system host controller.

The combo solution is suited for smart home products and network peripherals such as home appliances and printers.

The CYW4373 802 .11ac solution is currently sampling to lead customers. Full production is expected in late 2017.
