    New Dual-Band Wi-Fi 6 Companion IC Provides Seamless Wi-fi Connectivity and Wi-fi Based Locationing


    Nordic Semiconductor has launched a new ultra-low power, dual-band Wi-Fi 6 companion IC nRF7002 that provides seamless Wi-Fi connectivity and Wi-Fi-based locationing (SSID sniffing of local Wi-Fi hubs) and is designed to be used alongside Nordic’s existing nRF52 and nRF53 Series Bluetooth Systems-on-Chip (SoCs), and nRF91 Series cellular IoT Systems-in-Package (SiPs). Moreover, this nRF7002 IC can also be used in conjunction with non-Nordic host devices.

    With the nRF7002, Nordic Semiconductor brings decades of ultra-low-power wireless IoT and silicon design expertise to Wi-Fi 6, a standard that features efficiency gains that support long-life, battery-powered wireless IoT operation. Wi-Fi 6 will support all wireless protocols used in Matter, Bluetooth LE for commissioning, Thread for low power mesh, and Wi-Fi for high-throughput.
