Celeno Communications has unveiled the CLR260, a single PCIe WLAN chip powered by the company's signature video-grade OptimizAIR and digital beam forming technology. The CLR260 provides manufacturers with a highly integrated, low-cost access point solution for wireless home gateway and set-top box applications.

The CLR260 PCIe chip is a significant addition to Celeno's 802.11n portfolio, which includes the CL1830 SoC and CLR250 USB/Wi-Fi chips. With this addition, the company now offers an extensive 3x3 video-grade Wi-Fi portfolio that addresses service providers' cost-conscious architectures while meeting the requirements for concurrent dual band and HD video streaming in the home.

Celeno's chip leverages host CPU processing and memories to minimize bill of materials. It also ensures reliable, feature-rich wireless connectivity at high throughput from an extended distance to enable distribution of multiple HD video streams throughout the home.

Low packet drop, jitter, and latency, and overall QoS for perfect, lossless video streaming is achieved with channel-aware scheduling and rate selection. The device also combines an 802.11n MAC, baseband and 3x3 radio on a single silicon with support for PCIe bus and architecture.

The CLR260 operates in both the 2.4GHz and the uncongested 5GHz frequency channels, and works with legacy home networks as well as innovative 5GHz powered portable devices.
