  • Cost effective USB client architecture
  • Highly integrated: MAC, PHY and Radio.
  • Leverages host CPU processing and memories to minimize RBOM
  • Built in eFUSE for reduced RBOM

Video-Grade Performance

  • Real time Transmit Digital Beam Forming MIMO
  • 3Tx3R, up to 3 spatial streams – 450Mbps physical Wi-Fi speed
  • Optimized rate selection for video traffic
  • Low power consumption
  • Client-to-client direct connection (TDLS)
  • Wire-like HD video experience
  • Full HD video streaming coverage throughout the entire home
  • Unique solution to overcome wireless multi-room DVR throughput bottlenecks

By combining the CLR250 enabled clients with Celeno’s CL1800 powered Gateways and Access Points, service providers and OEMs can offer a cost effective home network with superior performance.

CLR250 Features

  • Combines an 802.11n MAC, baseband with 3Tx3R radio on a single silicon with a memory-less USB architecture, lowering the bill of materials
