By Ken Briodagh November 05, 2019

CEVA, a licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies, has announced that AIC Semiconductor, a new China-based fabless company focused on the IoT market, recently licensed the RivieraWaves 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 IP for a low power System-on-Chip (SoC).

The latest 802.11ax 1x1 Wi-Fi 6 implementation offers low power connectivity for IoT applications, according to the chief engineer at AIC Semiconductor. Licensing the RivieraWaves RW-11ax 1x1 Wi-Fi 6 IP will enable AIC to fast-track its chip design for IoT, the company said.

“It is a pleasure to announce AIC as a licensee for our Wi-Fi 6 IP,” said Ange Aznar, VP and GM, Wireless IoT Business Unit, CEVA. "The performance benefits that 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 offers over previous generations of the standard is exemplified in low power IoT use cases and AIC is primed to address this with a compelling product offering based on our best-in-class IP."

CEVA’s RivieraWaves Wi-Fi IP family offers a suite of platforms for embedding Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n (Wi-Fi 4), 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) or 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) into station and access point SoCs/ASSPs, and is offered pre-integrated with popular operating systems including FreeRTOS and AliOS Things.
