Mon, 11/08/2021 - 14:53

The focus of the presentation will be around the features introduced to the connectivity space by Wi-Fi 6 and how they can be leveraged in the embedded electronics space. Wi-Fi 6 has been promoted as the next generation Wi-Fi technology, bringing higher data rates to the connectivity markets; however its greatest contribution is the enhanced efficiency it brings to connectivity. We will review how this efficiency applies to and can be leveraged by embedded applications.

Topics that will be discussed are:

  • Improved link rate support and higher QAM
  • Low latency feature
  • Increased device density and station capacity
  • Enhanced low power modes
  • 6GHz spectrum availability
  • Wi-Fi 6 device profile
