Highly integrated AW693 delivers advanced automotive security with concurrent dual Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 to enable multiple secure connections within the car, supporting the transition to software-defined vehicles.
This requires a change in the approach to automotive connectivity design, prioritizing low latency, simultaneous multi-band connectivity to support both legacy and new devices, and connection stability to allow seamless communication throughout a vehicle. NXP’s automotive wireless connectivity portfolio, including the AW693, recognizes this shift, incorporating an access point-like design approach that prioritizes these capabilities along with NXP’s Concurrent Dual Wi-Fi (CDW), allowing OEMs to deliver high-performance connectivity at an optimized solution cost.
The AW693 is part of a complete portfolio of automotive wireless connectivity solutions that include the AW692, the AW690, the AW611, and the Q9098. The highly integrated AW693 offers concurrent dual Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 operation, with integrated 2.4 GHz and 5-7 GHz TX power amplifiers, RX low noise amplifiers, Tx/Rx switches, and a full Bluetooth radio. NXP’s integrated EdgeLock secure subsystem supports hardware crypto-accelerated secure boot, key management, firmware authentication, secure life cycle management, and anti-rollback protection. The AW693 is AEC-Q100 Grade 2 compliant.
NXP’s automotive wireless connectivity portfolio is designed to scale with the i.MX 8 and 9 series of applications processors, including the i.MX 95 family, as the basis of automotive platforms such as connectivity domain controllers or infotainment applications. The i.MX 95 family quickly and easily integrates the AW693 to enable safety-capable, secure automotive platforms and offers efficient machine learning acceleration. This helps to simplify development and reduce costs.
