STMicroelectronics and Quantenna Communications have signed a non exclusive worldwide licensing agreement giving ST the ability to integrate Quantenna IP into its broad array of systems on chips and giving Quantenna the ability to leverage the entire ecosystem of ST's entertainment networking and security products.
"Wi-Fi is becoming a crucial connectivity technology for a wide range of products where ST is a leading semiconductor supplier," said Gianluca Bertino, Executive Vice President and General Manager Digital Convergence Group, STMicroelectronics. "Integrating Quantenna's [..] 802.11ac technology, including the 4x4 configuration as well as other MIMO configurations like 3x3 and 2x2, into our products will enable us to further expand our leadership position in several market segments."
The two companies have started joint engineering integration efforts and the first ST products incorporating Quantenna Wi-Fi are expected to be introduced next year.
