The RivieraWaves Wi-Fi IP family offers a comprehensive suite of platforms for embedding Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac into SoCs/ASSPs. Optimized implementations are available targeting a broad range of connected devices, including smartphones, wearables, consumer electronics, smart home, gateway, industrial and automotive applications. Each of the RivieraWaves Wi-Fi platforms incorporates the Upper MAC (UMAC), Lower MAC (LMAC) and PHY modem functions.
In particular, the RivieraWaves Wi-Fi IP family includes a high performance Wi-Fi platform, called RivieraWaves Stream, which addresses the most advanced use cases applicable to access points, media gateways and Wi-Fi offload in small cells. Leveraging the processing power of the CEVA-XC4210 DSP for the PHY modem function, it is scalable to address up to several hundreds of users and offers flexible co-existence with LTE/LTE-A in infrastructure applications. The RivieraWaves Stream is available today for configurations up to 802.11ac 4×4.
This paper presents an evolution of the RivieraWaves Stream architecture for next-generation 802.11 ac Wave 3, which can support complex configurations up to 8×8 MU-MIMO with 160MHz bandwidth.
