Doodle Labs offers industry’s best-in-class performance for IEEE 802.11ac, and 802.11n (Wi-Fi) transceivers. These transceivers are ideal for OEMs and System Integrators implementing Industrial Wi-Fi applications. The transceivers have received regulatory approvals to simplify and expedite the system integration.

Thanks to their high transmit power, these transceivers provide higher throughput over longer distance and provide large area coverage. This characteristics helps to deliver faster data rates to the client devices like smartphones that typically have limited RF power and low Rx sensitivity.

In addition, Doodle Labs rugged transceivers feature high interference immunity. This is very important for operating in today’s Wi-Fi congested environments.
