MediaTek Filogic 130, Filogic 130A
Both the Filogic 130 and Filogic 130A support 1T1R Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) support, and other advanced Wi-Fi features including target wake time (TWT), MU-MIMO, MU-OFDMA, quality of service (QoS) and WPA3 Wi-Fi security.
Both the chipsets feature an ARM Cortex-M33 microcontroller paired with embedded RAM, external flash, and an integrated front-end module (iFEM). The Filogic 130A comes with an additional HiFi4 DSP, which offers support for more accurate far-field voice processing, always-on microphone capabilities with voice activity detection, and trigger word support.
MediaTek has partnered with AMD to create a new Wi-Fi solution for desktops and laptops. The new AMD RZ600 series Wi-Fi 6E module consists of the MediaTek Filogic 330P chipset. AMD has claimed that its new AMD RZ600 Wi-Fi solution will provide users with seamless high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, reduced latency, and reduced interference.
The MediaTek Filogic 330P supports 2×2 Wi-Fi 6 (2.4GHz/5GHz), Wi-Fi 6E (6GHz band up to 7.125GHz), and Bluetooth 5.2 (BT/BLE). It also comes integrated with the company’s own power amplifier (PA) and low noise amplifier (LNA) technology, which helps optimise power consumption and reduce design footprint.
