CL1800 CL1800 802.11n SoC

The powerful CL1800 System on Chip (SoC) is a highly integrated silicon solution combining 802.11n baseband, radio and powerful CPU. These unique features make the CL1800 ideal for cost sensitive, high performance Telco and retail applications such as multi-room digital video recorders (DVR) and WiFi-networked set top boxes and TVs.


CL1800 Highlights


Next generation, video-optimized, 802.11n compliant WiFi Access Point SoC:

  • Integrated Celeno’s OptimizAIR™ technology suite:
    •  3T3R Implicit (client agnostic) Transmit Beam forming (up to 3 spatial streams)
    • Supports up to 6 antennas for robust antenna diversity
    • TDM-like scheduled MAC for guaranteed QoS without collisions
    • Real-time channel-aware adaptive rate eliminates retransmission and packet loss
    • Superior interference immunity:
      • Dynamic 40/20MHz bandwidth utilization
      • Advanced PHY-level interference detection and seamless channel hopping
  • Includes a 802.11n digital baseband integrated with embedded CPU processing engine for overall reduced bill of materials (BoM) and minimizes load on host processor

CL1800 Features

  • Point to Multipoint solution architecture supporting up to eight (8) different concurrent HD streams and advanced throughput for demanding home networking topologies such as Multi-Room DVR
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) for simple setup and security configuration
  • HTTP-based GUI management and software upgrades
  • Remote management based on SNMP or TR-069 standards
  • Full wire speed of 450Mbps Ethernet-Wi-Fi bridging with full classification and QoS based on internal hardware network processor
  • Rich set of host interfaces (PCI/PCIe/RGMII/MII/USB) allows easy integration into gateways, DVRs, set-top-boxes and other CE devices
  • Full-rate hardware-based encryption engines to support WEP, AES-CCMP / Wi-Fi-WPA2
