The CL8040 is a high-performing, highly integrated Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) R2 single PCIe chip that delivers the best Wi-Fi network performance for its size by combining two Wi-Fi 6 radios into a single 11x11mm PCIe chip. The chip employs two concurrent dual-band Wi-Fi 6 radios with 4T4R architecture that can drive aggregated PHY/data link speeds up to 4.8Gbps. The two independent radios can function as an access point, client, AP/CLI, connectivity + dedicated spectrum intelligent engine.
CL8040 integrates dual MAC, dual PHY, analog and RFIC in a single package, including the required CPUs and memories to run more of the wireless LAN functions on-chip, eliminating the need for costly external memories. Interface to the host is over a dual-lane PCIe 3.0 interface.
The CL8040 is designed to support standard based features addressing security, quality of service and international regulation, as well as above-standard integrated value-add functionalities based on embedded and edge software technologies.
