The Broadcom BCM4354 SoC will allow manufacturers to deliver twice the Wi-Fi performance of 1X1 MIMO devices used in smartphones today and also improving system power efficiency up to 25 percent when using wireless applications.

It also addresses three key expectations that consumers have for their smartphone connectivity experience, which are speed, range and reliability. 2X2 MIMO uses two antennas to transmit and receive two streams of data at the same time, so it effectively doubles the performances.

The BCM4354 uses 5G Wi-Fi, so it has beam-forming capability that can dynamically sense the environment for transmitting Wi-Fi signals and steers the beam to a specific device. Besides these, the BCM4354 supports Android, Windows and Chrome-based operating systems.
