Celeno Communications announced a joint reference design with Realtek for 4K wireless set-top boxes. The solution uses Celeno's CL2440 4x4 802.11ac wave 2 WiFi chip and Realtek's RTD1295 SoC for 4K set-top boxes.

The joint reference design is intended to allow for an ultra-small-form-factor chassis enabled by energy efficient WiFi design. The CL2440, a PCIe WiFi radio, is designed to eliminate the need for additional external memories and boasts a small package size to reduce solution size and cost. Its embedded Smart Antenna Steering (SAS) technology allows for smart antenna arrays to improve overall WiFi performance, particularly for video.

"We are excited to partner with Realtek for high-performing wireless set-top box solutions," said Lior Weiss, VP of marketing at Celeno. "Together, we will drive a new breed of high-performing, cost-effective ultra-small form factor wireless set-top boxes that will allow service providers to offer more appealing devices that can be flexibly installed anywhere in the house and improve user satisfaction."

"Our customers demand very powerful performance, but they want that performance with the economic efficiency they've come to expect from Realtek products," said Realtek Vice President and Spokesman Yee-Wei Huang. "The cost-effective structure and high performance of the combined solution of Realtek's RTD1295 SoC and Celeno's CL2440 silicon allow us to deliver a significant step forward in 4K wireless set-top boxes, while simultaneously providing best in class efficiency that sets our product apart from competitors and maintains high levels of customer satisfaction."

In January, Celeno teamed up with AirGain on a gigabit WiFi reference design.
