Intel® Home Wi-Fi Development Kit

Jump-start development of an intelligent, context-aware home network infrastructure.

The Intel® Home Wi-Fi Development Kit offers a starting point to accelerate development of an intelligent network of gateways and range extenders, and evaluate designs. Intelligent range extenders can be used to provide consistent throughput and enhance Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the home. The development kit is based on the Intel® Home Wi-Fi SoC IRX200 and Intel® Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV500 Series to offer a high level of performance for 4x4 backhaul designs. The Wi-Fi operates in Tri-Band concurrent (TBC) with two radios dedicated to service and one dedicated to backhaul to offer a high level of performance for designs that support 4x4 backhaul.

Solutions based on the Intel Home Wi-Fi Development Kit are designed for use with gateways based on Intel® AnyWAN™ SoCs and Intel® Puma™ 6 and 7 Families to provide an advanced networking experience at home.
