Celeno bows new video-grade Wi-Fi chip
Celeno Communications will be showing off its new video-grade Wi-Fi chip at next week's International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The CLR260 is a single PCIe WLAN chip powered by Celeno's OptimizAir and digital beamforming technology. The chip can be used in wireless home gateways and set-top box applications.
"With the introduction of the CLR260, Celeno now offers a full product suite optimized for robust wireless video streaming in the home," said Lior Weiss, vice president of marketing of Celeno. "Our 802.11n video-grade product line has been adopted by over 20 ODMs and OEMs to enable a range of OEM Wi-Fi products. Service providers can now implement a video-grade Wi-Fi-enabled home cost-effectively using Celeno-enabled devices. These could include broadband gateways enabled with 3 x 3 CLR260 5 GHz and CLR260 2.4 GHz, video bridges enabled with a CL1830 3 x 3 SoC, and set-top box and laptops leveraging on USB dongles enabled by a CLR250 3 x 3 USB/Wi-Fi chip, among others."
The CLR260 operates in both the 2.4 GHz and the uncongested 5 GHz frequency channels and works with legacy home networks, as well as new 5 GHz-powered portable devices.
Celeno and European equipment supplier Inteno announced this morning that the Inteno ZAP100, powered by Celeno's video-grade Wi-Fi technology, was being offered by Telenor Sweden to wirelessly stream HD IPTV to multiple screens within subscribers' homes.
