The RivieraWaves Wi-Fi IP family offers a comprehensive suite of IPs and platforms for embedding Wi-Fi connectivity into SoCs/ASSPs addressing a broad range of applications.
The RW-AC IPs are part of the RivieraWaves Wi-Fi High Performance category, aimed at the vast array of media-sharing consumer devices including smartphones, tablets, cameras and smart home products. These are the industry’s smallest footprint and lowest power but high performance Wi-Fi IPs compliant with 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) 1x1 & 2x2.
The CEVA RW-AC IPs consist of 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) MAC and modem, available in both 1x1 SISO and 2x2 MIMO configurations. They are provided with LMAC (aka thinMAC) for use with linux/Android mac80211 UMAC, and LMAC+UMAC (aka FullMAC) software protocol stacks. They are provided with an integration-ready processor and operating-system- agnostic platform, simplifying deployment in SoC/ASSP designs. The Wi-Fi software protocol stacks can be executed on any processor such as ARM, ARC, Andes, Cortus, RISC-V and others.
The RW-AC platforms can be used in a standalone single chip or integrated into a bigger System on Chip (SoC) such as application processor, baseband processor, or multistandard wireless combos.
For more comprehensive solution, the RW-AC IPs are well complemented with CEVA-DSP such as the CEVA TeakLite 4 or CEVA-X2, to execute audio processing or other always on sensor hub.
Silicon independent, the RW-AC IPs support several radio IPs from various partners such as Catena. Other RF can be easily supported on customer demand.
