The Wi-Fi 6 router reference design files and prototypes are available now.
The router is based on the Quantenna QSR10GU-AX 8 x 8 MIMO dual-band dual concurrent Wi-Fi 6 chipset coupled with LS1043A 1.6GHz quad-core network processor from NXP Semiconductor. OnSemi completed the acquisition of Quantenna in June 2019 (see On Semi lays $1billion to buy Quantenna).
Wi-Fi 6 is intended to address the demand for 4K video streaming, online gaming and connecting smart home products. As well as supporting the emerging Wi-Fi 6 standard the Spartan router comes with design support, including hardware design files and a software development kit, as well as industrial design files.
The design supports dual-band, dual concurrent mode with 8 x 8 MIMO at 5GHz plus 4 x 4 MIMO at 2.4GHz 12-stream operation. It comes with 2.5G Ethernet WAN & LAN ports, a built-in near-field communication reader for easy Wi-Fi pairing. Other features include transmit beamforming, 1024-QAM, and target wake time (TWT). The reference design includes support for third-party applications such as motion detection, channel state information (CSI) and Radio Frequency (RF) sensing.
