Infineon extends its AIROC Wi-Fi 6/6E portfolio

Infineon has announced the company’s new AIROC CYW5591x connected microcontroller (MCU) product family. The new family integrates robust, long-range Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth Low Energy 5.4 along with a secured and versatile MCU to allow customers to build cost-optimised, power-efficient, small form-factor products for smart home, industrial, wearables, and other IoT applications. The flexible platform accelerates customers’ time-to-market with ModusToolbox software, RTOS and Linux host drivers, a fully validated Bluetooth stack and multiple sample code examples, Matter software enablement, and support for Infineon’s worldwide partner network.

This flexible device family can be used as the main processor in an IoT device or as a subsystem in more complex designs to fully offload connectivity for IoT applications. The product family is available in three versions: CYW55913 for tri-band (2.4/5/6 GHz), CYW55912 for dual-band (2.4/5 GHz), and CYW55911 for single-band (2.4GHz) support.
