Palma Ceia SemiDesign Announces Sampling for PCS11ax28, New 802.11ax Transceiver

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 28, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —    Palma Ceia SemiDesign, a fabless semiconductor company specializing in semiconductor chips and IP for next-generation wireless connectivity, today announced the PCS11ax28, its new chip for the 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard, is now available for customer sampling.

"We are very excited at the test outcomes for the PCS11ax28, our new 802.11ax transceiver – initial testing all came back with positive results," said James Flowers, chief operating officer of Palma Ceia SemiDesign. "The advanced feature set of the PCS11ax28 is designed to support the ever-expanding universe of applications for the Internet of Things and our customers' accelerating initiatives. Sample supply is initially limited due to greater than expected customer demand and we are working with our global partners to expand supply."

The 802.11ax standard, also known as Wi-Fi 6, is the newest version of the 802.11 standard for wireless network transmissions commonly referred to as Wi-Fi. It offers greater maximum data rates than earlier standards, as well as higher network capacity to support greater numbers of IoT devices. Wi-Fi 6 is backward-compatible with the previous version of the Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac.

Highlights of the new Wi-Fi 6 chip from Palma Ceia SemiDesign include:

  • Currently available in 1x1 MIMO configuration. Availability of 2X2 and 4X4 configurations is expected to begin Q3 2020
  • Supports Wi-Fi 6 channel bandwidths 20 MHz, 40MHz and 80MHz.
  • Supports all Wi-Fi 6 modulations up to 1024-QAM.
  • Analog I/O out can enable Bluetooth over 2.4 GHz channel.
  • Extremely low power consumption, with peak RX power consumption of only 195mW for the 1x1 configuration.
  • Based on high-performance 28-nm HPC technology
