CL2340 Small CL2340 802.11ac dual band 4x4 Single Chip

The CL2340 is a powerful, highly integrated, dual band 4x4 802.11ac single chip with 1300Mbps PHY rate support to deliver the increased coverage and highest throughput performance required for high quality video and media applications in the home. The CL2340 integrates both a CPU and memory to run more of the wireless LAN functions on-chip, delivering a strong host offloading solution.

The CL2340 is embedded with Celeno’s feature rich OptimizAIR 2.0 suite, including both implicit and explicit beamforming enabling the delivery of the highest levels of performance and reliability anytime and under any circumstances while ensuring superlative QoS. The suite includes Celeno’s breakthrough Wi-Fi airtime management technology, enabling the dynamic provisioning and enforcement of airtime capacity per Wi-Fi network (SSID) and per client.

Delivering these capabilities in a single, high-performance 802.11ac solution, the CL2340 ups the ante for wireless performance and range. It is the ideal choice for high performance set-top- boxes, service provider gateways, hotspots and homespots, delivering data-intensive streaming multimedia applications to the connected home.
