An 802.11n WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) network controller, also known as a wireless LAN controller, is a network device or software application that manages and controls a wireless network based on the 802.11n wireless standard. This controller is responsible for coordinating and optimizing the operation of multiple access points (APs) and wireless clients within the network
Part Number: RTL8711, RTL8711AF
Function: SINGLE-CHIP 802.11b/g/n 1T1R WLAN SoC
Package: QFN48 ( 6 x 6mm2 ) Type
Manufacturer: Realtek Semiconductor
Realtek RTL8711 is a highly integrated single-chip low power 802.11n Wireless LAN (WLAN) network controller. It combines an ARM-CM3 MCU, WLAN MAC, a 1T1R capable WLAN baseband, and RF in a single chip. It also provides a bunch of configurable GPIOs which are configured as digital peripherals for different applications and control usage.
RTL8711AF integrates internal memories for complete WIFI protocol functions. The embedded memory configuration also provides simple application developments.
1. CMOS MAC, Baseband PHY, and RF in a single chip for 802.11b/g/n compatible
2. Complete 802.11n solution for 2.4GHz band
3. 72.2Mbps receive PHY rate and 72.2Mbps transmit PHY rate using 20MHz bandwidth
4. 150Mbps receive PHY rate and 150Mbps transmit PHY rate using 40MHz bandwidth
802.11n WLAN network controllers are commonly used in enterprise and business environments, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and other settings where wireless network management, security, and performance are critical.
