nRF7001 Wi-Fi 6 Companion IC

Low-power, advanced security, seamless coexistence

With decades of expertise in ultra-low-power wireless IoT and silicon design, Nordic is now bringing its know-how to Wi-Fi, providing added benefits to IoT applications, including further efficiency gains that support long-life, battery-powered Wi-Fi operation. The nRF7001 Wi-Fi 6 companion IC is an innovative IC designed to seamlessly enable Wi-Fi 6 connectivity in various applications.

The nRF7001 is the second device in Nordic's nRF70 Series of Wi-Fi companion ICs, which combines effortlessly with Nordic's existing ultra-low power technologies. Designed to work alongside Nordic's nRF52 and nRF53 Series Bluetooth SoCs, and nRF91 Series cellular IoT SiPs, the nRF7001 can also be used with non-Nordic host devices.

The nRF7001 features a 2.4 GHz radio with low power consumption, ensuring extended battery life, and advanced security features to protect user data. The nRF7001 is a cost-efficient yet powerful solution for adding the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology to products. It offers fast and reliable connectivity, advanced security features, and is designed for easy integration into a wide range of applications. With the nRF7001 Wi-Fi 6 companion IC, developers can now leverage the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology to create innovative and cutting-edge IoT products that offer improved speeds, extended range, and greater reliability.

With Wi-Fi 6 we support all wireless protocols used in Matter, Bluetooth LE for commissioning, Thread for low power mesh, and Wi-Fi for high-throughput. Matter is a protocol championed by Apple, Amazon, Google, Nordic Semiconductor, Samsung, and hundreds of other companies in consumer IoT.
