Automotive WiFi + Bluetooth Combos

  • Automotive Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Combo Solutions

Cypress's portfolio of automotive qualified, WICED Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo solutions allow drivers and passengers to easily sync and stream content from mobile devices to the car's infotainment system and rear-seat displays, while enabling high-speed connectivity beyond the vehicle. All automotive grade, combo solutions have the latest generation IEEE 802.11ac-compliant WLAN PHY and dual band (2.4 GHz/5 GHz) support. These features enable the bandwidth required for multiple in-car displays with resolutions of up to 1080p. In addition upcoming solutions will increase performance with features like Real Simultaneous Dual Band (RSDB) i.e. simultaneous operation in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands as well as Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) support. 

Automakers can leverage in-car Wi-Fi to deliver software upgrades and new features. Drivers can use a mobile device to check remotely on their car's location, gas levels and mileage. The same device can receive alerts about vehicle performance and diagnostics. In-vehicle Wi-Fi technology also enables mobile hot-spots for on-the-go connectivity without relying on cellular service. Wi-Fi is also expected to play a key role in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications and the enablement of the self-driving vehicle, particularly as standards continue to evolve to support Gigabit speeds and beyond.
