Infineon Technologies is working with Nvidia to add its high bandwidth WiFi 6E at 6GHz to the Jetson edge AI platform.

AI-at-the-edge devices require reliable and instant WiFi cloud connectivity for lifecycle management functions like deploying AI models through over-the-air (OTA) updates. Infineon’s AIROC Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo provide high performance WiFi 6/6E and low-power WiFi 5 integrated with the full range of Nvidia Jetson system-on-modules.

“In congested network environments, AI devices often encounter disconnections or low-data throughput, leading to poor user experience. Infineon’s AIROC Wi-Fi family delivers low latency, robust connectivity, and high data throughput streaming, which brings exceptional uninterrupted system level performance,” said Sivaram Trikutam, Vice President, Wi-Fi Product Line at Infineon. “We are happy to collaborate with NVIDIA so our customers can leverage the power of the NVIDIA Jetson platform in combination with our AIROC Wi-Fi solutions.”

“The NVIDIA Jetson platform gives customers powerful, easy-to-use tools to develop and deploy AI-at-the-edge devices for all sorts of applications,” said Durga Peddireddy, Jetson ecosystem partner lead at NVIDIA. “With Infineon’s reliable, proven and innovative Wi-Fi solutions, customers using the NVIDIA Jetson platform can easily build high-performance, AI-enabled devices.”

Many AI applications require real-time blending effects from live action to computer-generated images or videos, like gaming and AR/VR in industry applications. The device must process and stream data simultaneously. In these applications, high-throughput and low-latency wireless transmissions are critical. Infineon’s WiFi 6E, operating in the 6-7GHz band, minimizes the latency and prevents interruptions due to congested wireless networks.

Compatible products are here. Details of AIROC on the Jetson Xavier module are here.

The AIROC CYW4373, CYW5459x, CYW5557x are available to design now.
