Amp’ed RF Wireless Technology announced a WiFi dual band single-chip solution. The Amp’ed RF Connectivity Controller, ACC1340, is a perfect solution for audio, video and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer the highest power and memory efficiency of any Wi-Fi chip on the market today with our ACC1340”, said Kelly Simone, President of Amp’ed RF Wireless Technology.
The chip offers dual band support in both 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies providing a balanced approach to supporting WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n protocols. Further, a feature of Packet Traffic Arbitration, PTA, supports coexistence with Bluetooth radios in the 2.4GHz band.
Naz Usmani, VP of sales at Amp’ed RF, said: “The dual band feature allows you to avoid data traffic jams by putting you in the 5GHz fast lane. Dual band allows for excellent reception in crowded environments with high population density areas such as apartment complexes, office buildings and transport hubs.”
The ACC1340 features low energy consumption, fast speed and a clean design. Its complete feature set offers the right amount of integration options, allowing for fewer external components and faster time to market. This is great for manufacturers of Wi-Fi enabled products who wish to seamlessly stream audio, video or Internet data.
Key specifications of the chip include STA, Soft AP, Wi-Fi Direct, and HotSpot 2.0. It also supports concurrent mode STA and Soft AP.
