TriQuint Semiconductor, an RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, today stated that a chipset provider has selected its two new high-performance 5GHz WLAN front-end modules for the industry’s fastest commercially available 4x4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac chipset. Triquint state that with almost 2Gbps total throughput, the chipset streams flawless, carrier-grade IPTV to multiple devices in full 1080p or 4K Ultra HD resolution. TriQuint’s modules provide the improved linearity, power consumption and thermal performance critical for delivering high-quality HD video in Wi-Fi set-top boxes and media gateways.

TriQuint also launched a family of three high-performance filters to solve challenging Wi-Fi / LTE interference issues. Utilizing TriQuint’s bulk acoustic wave technology, these advanced filters enable customers to extend Wi-Fi ranges while meeting stringent spectrum regulations worldwide. TriQuint has already secured multiple design wins for these filters in Wi-Fi access points, home media gateways and automotive infotainment markets.

“As demand for high-bandwidth Wi-Fi connectivity grows, our customers and chipset partners count on TriQuint to solve the toughest system challenges so they can deliver best-in-class wireless broadband capabilities,” said James Klein, Vice President for Infrastructure and Defense Products. “TriQuint continues to drive WLAN innovation and capture design wins for its high-performance BAW filters in several applications. We’re leveraging our broad in-house RF technology portfolio and integration expertise to deliver products for the fast-growing WLAN infrastructure connectivity market.”

According to a recent market report, shipments of consumer and enterprise WLAN access points will reach 170 million and 25 million respectively at the end of 2014. As new devices are rolled out with the faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, sales are rapidly accelerating: 802.11ac devices are expected to represent 45% of consumer Wi-Fi equipment shipments at the end of 2014.*
