March 02, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Celeno Communications has announced a joint reference design with Realtek for 4K wireless set-top boxes, which is enabled by the CL2440 4x4 802.11ac wave 2 Wi-Fi chip from Celeno and the RTD1295 SoC for 4K set-top boxes from Realtek.

The joint reference design allows for high performance wireless set-top-boxes with an ultra-small-form-factor chassis enabled by energy efficient Wi-Fi design. The CL2440, an energy efficient PCIe Wi-Fi radio, eliminates the need for additional external memories and boasts a small package size which together drive down size and cost. Its unique embedded Smart Antenna Steering (SAS) technology allows for smart antenna arrays to increase diversity and overall Wi-Fi performance for flicker free video.

"We are excited to partner with Realtek for high performing wireless set-top box solutions" said Lior Weiss, VP Marketing of Celeno. "Together, we will drive a new breed of high performing, cost effective ultra-small form factor wireless set-top boxes that will allow service providers to offer more appealing devices that can be flexibly installed anywhere in the house and improve user satisfaction."
