CL2400

11ac Silicon Chipsets

CL2400

The CL2400 product family is a powerful, highly integrated chipset solution implementing full 802.11ac Wave 2 functionality

The CL2400 series supports MU-MIMO, beamforming and an array of Spatial Streams. Employing new MAC and PHY improvements to perfect throughput in dense environments, the CL2400 product family significantly raises the bar on Wi-Fi performance, range and reliability.

The product family integrates both a CPU and memory to run more of the wireless LAN functions on-chip, eliminating the need for costly external memories and delivering a strong host offloading solution.
