CSR plc today announced availability of the CSR6030A11, its most powerful and feature-rich automotive-qualified standalone Wi-Fi solution. CSR introduced the CSR6000 family of automotive-grade platforms in April 2011 and, in close collaboration with automotive manufacturers, has since continued updating the company’s Wi-Fi solution to meet and exceed customer expectations. Representing a significant R&D investment, CSR’s new automotive Wi-Fi solution offers a number of significant advancements. In addition to improvements to the Wi-Fi performance, the CSR6030A11 offers “Concurrent Network Mode” – the capability to support Wi-Fi connectivity on two networks at the same time. In addition, CSR6030A11 is Wi-Fi Direct compliant, meaning that the CSR6030A11 can connect directly to other Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Wi-Fi Direct devices without relying on a hotspot for that connection. These capabilities give system designers greatly increased flexibility in supporting a much greater range of network topologies and use cases within the rapidly-changing, in-car consumer communications and entertainment environment.
