TI introduces WiLink 8Q family of wireless automotive connectivity solutions

Jan 09, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Texas Instruments Incorporated, or TI, has introduced the WiLink 8Q family of wireless automotive connectivity solutions.

With its multi-radio technology, the WiLink 8Q family reaches new levels of cross platform scalability and delivers advanced features including in-car multimedia streaming video in-parallel with Bluetooth hands-free calling and advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP) stereo sound, the company said.

Additionally, with near field communications (NFC) for easy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth pairing, WiLink 8Q solutions enable an easy connection between a smartphone or tablet and the automobile, providing a seamless user experience.

The WiLink 8Q family is designed for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast operation. With an integrated power amplifier (PA) and complete software reuse across all family members, WiLink 8Q solutions provide a full range of products for wireless automotive infotainment including combo-connectivity system-on-chips (SoCs) with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support; integrated combo-connectivity SoCs with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy and NFC; and super-combo SoCs with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy, NFC, and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) support, the company added.

"Delivering the familiar experience consumers have with smartphones and the tablets into the automobile to share information and content from drivers' and passengers' devices is driving the need for strong wireless connectivity solutions. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and GNSS have to work together seamlessly as integrated parts of the entire system," said Mattias Lange, automotive connectivity product line manager, Wireless Connectivity Solutions, TI.

"The WiLink 8Q family takes our expertise in wireless connectivity and automotive applications to the next level with support of four different RF technologies on one SoC - a truly integrated approach to automotive infotainment."
