The ATWINC15x0B WLAN PHY is designed to achieve reliable and power-efficient physical layer communication specified by IEEE 802.11 b/g/n in Single Stream mode with 20 MHz bandwidth. Advanced algorithms are employed to achieve maximum throughput in a real-world communication environment with impairments and interference. The PHY implements all the required functions that include FFT, filtering, FEC (Viterbi decoder), frequency, timing acquisition and tracking, channel estimation and equalization, carrier sensing, clear channel assessment and automatic gain control.
