The Filogic 880 and Filogic 380 Wi-Fi 7 platform solutions from MediaTek were announced recently by MediaTek. Both chipsets are meant for high-bandwidth applications in the operator, retail, enterprise, and consumer electronics markets.
This pair of chips will be among the first Wi-Fi 7 solutions available, allowing device makers to deliver cutting-edge products with the most up-to-date connectivity technology.
According to MediaTek, Filogic 880 is a complete platform that combines a Wi-Fi 7 access point with a new advanced host processor solution to deliver the industry’s best router and gateway solution for operators, retailers, and enterprises.
It has a scalable architecture that can support up to penta-band 4×4 at 36 Gbps. All client devices, including smartphones, tablets, TVs, notebooks, set-top boxes, and OTT streaming devices, will benefit from the Filogic 380’s Wi-Fi 7 connectivity. The chip’s dual concurrent 2×2 capability will be optimised “out of the box” for these devices. This streamlines the design process, improves performance, and reduces time to market.
The Filogic 880 platform features a 6nm Wi-Fi 7 access point that supports key Wi-Fi 7 technologies like 4096-QAM, 320MHz, MRU, and MLO. It has the ability to scale up to 36Gbps penta-band speeds. Furthermore, the chipset can support up to 10Gbps per channel. OFDMA RU, MU-MIMO, and MBSSID are also supported.
The Filogic 880 platform includes a powerful host processor with a quad-core Arm Cortex-A73 application processor and an advanced NPU, in addition to Wi-Fi 7 capabilities. An advanced hardware network full off-load engine on both Wi-Fi and Ethernet interfaces is one of the key features. IPSec, SSL/TLS, DTLS (CAPWAP), SRTP, and MACsec are all accelerated by a built-in networking crypto engine (EIP-197). High-speed interfaces (5Gbps USB and 10Gbps PCI-Express), UART, SD, SPI, PWM, GPIO, and OTP are all supported, allowing for extensive platform customization.
Filogic 380, on the other hand, is a stand-alone, single-chip 6nm Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.3 combo solution designed by MediaTek to deliver best-in-class connectivity. It works with MediaTek SoCs in smartphones, TVs, notebooks, set-top boxes, OTT streaming devices, and many other consumer electronics devices.
Support for key Wi-Fi 7 technologies such as 4096-QAM, 320MHz, MRU, and MLO are among the Filogic 380’s highlights. Furthermore, MLO is supported, with speeds of up to 6.5 Gbps. It can also handle up to 5Gbps per channel. It supports the 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz frequency bands. Dual 2×2 radios for dual-band simultaneous operation are supported, as is Bluetooth 5.3 with LE Audio.
