Synaptics Launches Breakthrough Triple Combo™ 16 nm Ultra-Low-Power SoC With Enhanced Connectivity and Streaming Features to Drive New Automotive and Multimedia Use Cases

NUREMBERG, Germany, March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics® Incorporated (Nasdaq: SYNA) today announced the latest Triple ComboTM—the breakthrough SYN4382—with state-of-the-art system-on-chip (SoC) radio integration and architectural innovations that enable a more immersive and reliable audio and video experience across a new range of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, while lowering power consumption, cost, and system complexity. Building upon the original award-winning Triple Combo 16 nm platform—the first to integrate Wi-Fi 5/6E, Bluetooth 5.3 (BT 5.3), and IEEE 802.15.4/Thread radios—the ultra-low-power SYN4382 features a doubling of Wi-Fi throughput to 1200 Mbps, the addition of another discrete radio channel for real-time simultaneous dual-band (RSDB) 2.4 and 5 or 6/6E GHz operation for robust, high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, and LE Audio for multiple concurrent BT 5.3 audio streams in a multi-device environment.

The SoC comes with built-in support for the Matter application layer to ensure interoperability of IoT devices across heterogeneous wireless networks, as well as Synaptics’ own best-in-class, proprietary, Smart Co-Ex coexistence technology, to ensure a seamless multimedia wireless experience.

“SYN4382 is the perfect solution for complex, streaming-intense applications such as advanced automotive infotainment units and high-end OTT and TV/home theater audio systems,” said Brandon Bae, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at Synaptics. “For example, in a car, the first Wi-Fi 6E radio can act as a soft access point and stream multimedia content to a number of local in-car devices. The second radio, meanwhile, provides the ability to connect to a high-speed Wi-Fi network. At the same time, the SYN4382 is capable of using LE Audio to stream to multiple BT 5.3 devices, including rear entertainment systems.”

Along with reduced hardware complexity, the SYN4382 is supported by Synaptics’ Syn-FiTM software tools to simplify product development and reduce time to market for increasingly advanced IoT devices that need to connect across heterogeneous IoT networks, regardless of platform or OEM.
