Embedded electronics specialist Synaptics has introduced the launch of a brand new chip for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity within the Web of Issues (IoT), claiming a best-in-class rate-over-range efficiency and an algorithm that may watch you breathe: the SYN43711 system-on-chip (SoC).
“Wi-fi is integral to Synaptics’ complete ‘Sense, Course of, Join’ technique and product portfolio for the IoT,” says Synaptics’ Brandon Bae in assist of the launch. “The SYN43711 is a high-performance Wi-Fi and Bluetooth answer that allows a broader vary of community edge purposes. These embrace video distribution, the place constantly excessive throughput is required, and AI-enabled compute, the place information have to be communicated securely and reliably with low latency.”
The SYN43711 is designed so as to add each Wi-Fi 6E (IEEE 802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity to a system, providing simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz or 6GHz connectivity to push 600Mb/s throughput on the previous and assist for Bluetooth Low Power (BLE) and a number of concurrent connections and audio streams on the latter.

Each radios profit from what the corporate calls “Synaptics Good Co-Ex,” designed to assist Wi-Fi and Bluetooth higher coexist on the two.4GHz band — routinely shifting frequencies when required with the intention to keep away from interference.
In comparison with Synaptics’ current dual-stream SYN43756E chip, the SYN43711 is available in providing half the height throughput on its Wi-Fi aspect — however, as at trade-off, will are available in at a decrease value, the corporate guarantees. It additionally retains assist for the corporate’s “Wi-Fi Sensing” algorithm, which analyzes Wi-Fi Channel State Info (CSI) to detect the presence of people, estimate their movement, provide an approximation as to their location in a room, and sense gestures and actions as delicate as respiration.
The SYN43711 is now sampling to “key prospects,” Synaptics has confirmed, with normal availability in quantity slated for the primary quarter of 2024; the chip will probably be made accessible in customary and plated through-hole (PTH) suitable WLBGA packages. Pricing has but to be confirmed, however extra info is on the market on the corporate’s product web page.
