QCA9980

Wave-2 802.11ac Solution with MU-MIMO for Home Networks

The QCA9980 is a Wave-2 802.11ac radio that helps high-performance Wi-Fi routers, gateways, set-top boxes and range extenders to support more devices and more demanding applications in the connected home. The dual-band, 4x4 solution is designed to deliver peak data rates up to 1.7 Gbps, and uses Multi-User MIMO to maintain fast connections on increasingly crowded networks.
