Wi-Fi is a major component of many embedded platforms. However, the branding and versions of Wi-Fi are confusing at best. And, with the introduction of Wi-Fi HaLow, mesh variants, and the new Wi-Fi 6, the IEEE 802.11 specifications couldn't be more complicated. In this presentation, we will highlight the major variations of the versions, which ones operate in that frequencies, their speeds, distances and what types of hardware are needed for each type. If you're as confused as most as to all of the differences between IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/Ah/ax etc., this presentation will provide you with a road map to determine which Wi-Fi is best suited for your applications.
