The EtherChip EC482 has been specifically designed for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) 5 GHz and WiFi applications, with superior single- and multi-antenna performance at frequencies even beyond the WiFi high-band. Ultra-fast RF switching seamlessly supports WiFi air interface protocols. Very low off capacitance provides ample control in switching reactances at high WiFi frequencies. Embedded in the EC482 are Ethertronics proprietary algorithm and communication and control conduits to enable Active Steering for WiFi applications. Ethertronics worldwide applications team can easily integrate EC482 into a variety of products, including access points, set-top boxes, WiFi clients, WiFi extenders, wearables and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Ethertronics Active Steering technology generates multiple radiation patterns from a single antenna structure. EC482 enables Ethertronics Active Steering beam steering technique from a wireless device by monitoring RF link performance, and through a combination of closed loop and predictive algorithms, optimally selects the antenna radiation pattern that provides the best RF link performance.
