Wireless Connectivity

Wireless connectivity technologies have come a long way over the past decade and a half—from the near-singular applications of Wi-Fi for Internet access for PCs, as well as Bluetooth for wireless earpieces for feature phones. These two technologies still ship in the highest volumes among all wireless connectivity technologies as they continuously evolve. They have become ubiquitous in certain product types, and continue to expand into new product types. GNSS will always remain a vital aspect of location-based solutions. IEEE 802.15.4 is growing rapidly since it has different strengths compared to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and NFC continues to move beyond payment applications and compliments other wireless technologies well.

This service provides a comprehensive look at wireless connectivity’s growth into many product types and shows the chipset integration trends across standalone chipsets, combo wireless connectivity chipsets, and integrated platforms with wireless connectivity. It looks at the integration trends driven heavily by the mobile device space that has started to shift to the IoT space.
