Wi-Fi HaLow chips support kilometre-range for IoT
Palma Ceia SemiDesign has taped out the PCS2100 and PSC2500 chips, client and access-point transceivers designed to the Wi-Fi HaLow standard.

The PCS2100 and PCS2500, based on the IEEE 802.11ah wireless standard, suitable for applications in domains such as agriscience, Industry 4.0, smart home, smart health, and surveillance and safety.

The PCS2100 and PCS2500 both operate in a sub-Gigahertz (S1G) frequency range, extending their operating range to 1 kilometer and beyond, depending on conditions.

Operating using a Wi-Fi protocol with special IoT network management functions, the PCS2100 provides exceptional range, scalable throughput and low power, all key performance metrics for efficient and robust IoT networks.

The PCS2500 supports complete AP functionality including device authentication, security, and protocol functions that optimize network operation such that devices contend for the network in an orderly fashion.

Both the PCS2100 and PCS2500 support streaming and telemetric — continuous — communication links.

The PCS2100 and PCS2500 are expected to be available for sampling beginning in Q4. Contact Palma Ceia SemiDesign via email at info@pcsemi.com for details.
