STMicroelectronics (ST) and Quantenna Collaborate on Highly Compact 4K Wi-Fi Client Reference Design

In China, across multiple Electronic applications, the world’s leading semiconductor supplier STMicroelectronics (ST; NYSE: STM) and the world’s largest provider of ultra-high-performance Wi-Fi solutions, Quantenna Communications, Inc. Announced that both parties’ reference designs for playback of high-quality 4K video over a home Wi-Fi network on a highly compact fanless set-top box are now available for sale. This reference design has excellent indoor network coverage, higher portability and multi-machine sharing capabilities.
Eric Benoit, Head of Product Line Director, Consumer Electronics, STMicroelectronics, said: “ST unveiled the world’s first wireless client chip for a single-chip HD set-top box at the 2015 International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in the Netherlands. Cannes Wi-Fi (STiH390), and this partnership represents ST’s entry into the 4K UHD market. The technology integration between the two parties will help equipment manufacturers develop cost-effective, design-flexible 4K wireless solutions that enable consumers to Get the perfect multimedia experience at home.”
The new reference design set-top box incorporates ST’s market-proven high-performance Cannes 4K ARM® quad-core system-on-chip. This new product, which is already on the market, not only integrates advanced middleware, but also has a strong development ecosystem that enables customers to rapidly develop high-profile solutions with short development cycles.
The cost and system of ST’s Cannes 4K SoC have been optimized and improved. After integration with the Quantenna QSR1000, through a 4×4 MIMO architecture that supports DynaMMO (Dynamic Multipurpose MIMO) technology, dynamic digital beamforming and four spatial streams, Provides outstanding performance, transmission distance, reliability and coverage. The standardized STMicroelectronics Quantenna reference design is compatible with all third-party 802.11ac and 802.11n products.
Harpreet Chohan, senior director of product marketing at Quantenna Communications, said: “Users can use set-top boxes, OTT platforms and consumer electronics at home to achieve the same comfort, and the QSR1000 is particularly suitable for wireless multimedia transmission, which can achieve cable-equivalent video transmission quality. Nearly 2Gbps The total throughput allows the reference design to robustly deliver carrier-grade IPTV to multiple 1080p Full HD or 4K Ultra HD devices, penetrating concrete walls and floors of multi-storey homes, covering every corner of the room.”
