Quantenna Communications (NASDAQ:QTNA) announced on Monday that it has partnered with NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) for the WiFi 6 market.

As quoted in the press release:

The platforms include hardware, software and a set of reference designs  for integrated residential gateways, routers and repeaters, as well as enterprise, industrial and outdoor applications. These designs combine Quantenna’s Wi-Fi 6 products, QSR10GU-AX PLUS and QSR5GU-AX PLUS, with NXP’s Layerscape® processors, including LS1043A and LS1046A multicore processors. They offer high levels of Wi-Fi performance with up to 10 Gbps throughput, a high-performance networking stack with extra security features, support for IoT technologies such as Bluetooth® and NFC, and processing headroom for customer applications.

Quantenna’s QSR10GU-AX Plus (12-stream) and QSR5GU-AX Plus (9-stream) provide integrated dual-band, dual-concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz functionality in the same chipset, and support speeds up to 10 Gbps for the QSR10GU-AX Plus. Both chipset families include the SmartScan feature, which offers enhanced radar detection and spectrum analyzer capabilities with wide frequency range analysis. These families also support advanced MU-MIMO schemes, allowing for transmission to multiple devices at the same time.

The pin-compatible NXP LS1043A and LS1046A are quad-core, 64-bit Arm®-based processors designed for high-performance communication systems. They offer up to 45,000 Coremarks of CPU performance and include on-chip packet and crypto acceleration for up to 20 Gbps routing throughput.
