Best in Show Nominee: Synaptics SYN4382 Triple Combo 2
March 10, 2023
The new SYN4382 Triple Combo 2 system on chip (SoC) is the second generation of Synaptics’ award-winning platform that integrates Wi-Fi 6/6E, Bluetooth 5.3 (BT 5.3), and IEEE 802.15.4 radios with built-in support for the Thread protocol and the Matter application layer.
The new version features a doubling in Wi-Fi throughput to 1200 Mbps, as well as real-time simultaneous dual-band (RSDB) operation (versus time-multiplexed implementations) in the 2.4 GHz and 5- or 6/6E-GHz bands for ultra-reliable, robust connectivity. The SoC and its supporting SynFi software simplify development of Internet of Things (IoT) devices while ensuring reliable, seamless, and secure, high-speed connectivity across heterogeneous networks for the optimum user experience.
The typical smart home, automobile cabin, or factory floor comprises devices from multiple vendors with a variety of wireless interfaces and communication protocols, all with varying throughput and quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. Combining the three main wireless interfaces on a single low-power 16 nm IC, with 2x2 MIMO for double the throughput of previous-gen devices and RSDB for the strongest possible connection in noisy wireless environments, the SYN4382 ensures users of any wireless IoT device have the best possible experience.
