STMicroelectronics and Quantenna Communications Inc. have entered into a non-exclusive licensing contract. The agreement entitles ST to integrate Quantenna's IP into its SoCs and also enables Quantenna to leverage ST's entertainment, networking, and security products.

"WiFi is becoming a crucial connectivity technology for a wide range of products where ST is a leading semiconductor supplier," said Gianluca Bertino, executive vice president and general manager digital convergence group, STMicroelectronics. "Integrating Quantenna's best-in-class 802.11ac technology, including the 4x4 configuration as well as other MIMO configurations like 3x3 and 2x2, into our products will enable us to further expand our leadership position in several market segments."

"We are proud to work with a top semiconductor company like ST," said Sam Heidari, chief executive officer of Quantenna. "This licensing agreement opens a new chapter in Quantenna's strategy and enables us to position ourselves into new markets as well as leverage ST's exceptional customer and geographical diversity."

The two companies have started joint engineering integration efforts and the first ST products incorporating Quantenna WiFi are expected to be introduced next year.
