Broadcom, a leading semiconductor company, has recently unveiled three of its second-generation Wi-Fi 7 chip range, designed for wireless connectivity in various sectors. These chips support Wi-Fi 7 along with integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Zigbee, Thread, and Matter protocols. The company aims to equip developers with necessary wireless connectivity options to explore new possibilities for the Internet of Things (IoT) and other applications.

The first in line is the BCM6765, designed for residential access point chips to enable the mass-market production of Wi-Fi 7 access points and smart repeater solutions. The device uses 320 MHz 2-stream Wi-Fi operation to cater to a range of cost, form factor, and performance requirements, ensuring advanced connectivity for homes and businesses.

Another product to the portfolio is the BCM47722, an enterprise access point platform SoC, which features dual IoT radios that enable simultaneous operation for BLE, Zigbee, Thread, and Matter protocols. As the demand for IoT applications continues to rise in the enterprise Wi-Fi market, BCM47722 addresses this need by offering robust connectivity and optimized performance. When it comes to mobile devices, such as handheld devices, the BCM4390 fills in the gap with a low-power Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 802.15.4 combination device platform.

“Arcadyan is proud to expand our collaboration with Broadcom to build out our portfolio of Wi-Fi 7 solutions for the service provider market. Broadcom’s modular approach of Wi-Fi 7 solutions enables a full spectrum of residential gateways and extenders options which can be optimized for performance, form factor, and cost and gives us the flexibility to address our customers’ specific needs,” says Raymond Hsiung, vice president, Sales & Marketing at Arcadyan.

The BCM47722 includes an integrated quad-core Armv8 CPU and supports multi-link operation (MLO) with up to 3-link support on the SoC and SpeedBooster support. Moreover, it integrates dual radio Bluetooth Low-Energy, Thread, and Zigbee support, complying with IEEE, WFA Wi-Fi 7, and Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) specifications, as well as the Bluetooth 5.4 standard and future draft specifications.

Broadcom is currently sampling its second-generation Wi-Fi 7 chips to early access partners and customers in various industries.
