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.
This RW-AX 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) IP is part of the RivieraWaves Wi-Fi Low Power category, targeted at IoT peripherals, including wearables, medical devices, wireless audio and other use cases where power and cost are critical factors. This is the industry’s smallest footprint and lowest power Wi-Fi IP compliant with 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) 1x1 20MHz and 20/40MHz STAs.
The CEVA RW-AX Low Power IP consists of 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) MAC and modem cores, restricted to 1x1 SISO with 20MHz or 20/40MHz bandwidths configurations, supporting STA and Soft AP modes. The MAC is controlled by a LMAC+UMAC (aka FullMAC) software protocol stack. The IP is provided with an integration-ready processor and operating-system- agnostic platform, simplifying deployment in SoC/ASSP designs. The Wi-Fi software protocol stack can be executed on any processor such as ARM, ARC, Andes, Cortus, RISC-V and others.
The RW-AX platform can be used in a standalone single processor chip or integrated into a bigger microcontroller with an application processor.
For more comprehensive solution, the RW-AX IP is 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-AX Low Power IP supports several radio IPs from various partners such as Catena. Other RF can be easily supported on customer demand.
