IPQ6018 is a new generation IPQ6000 series WiFi access point/wireless router solution launched by Qualcomm, an industry-leading WLAN chip manufacturer. It consists of a WiFi subsystem, a network processing subsystem and a CPU subsystem, and can support WiFi 5 specifications. IPQ6018 is different from the previous generation IPQ4018, IPQ4019 and other 802.11ac Wave2 solutions. IPQ6018 does not integrate the radio frequency part of WiFi, but adopts the method of separating radio frequency and baseband, which can reduce the heat of the chip.
