WiDeFi Selects Atmel for SiGe 802.11 Repeater Chipsets

WiDeFi, a start-up based in Melbourne, Florida, selected Atmel as its foundry partner for its Xtender family of 802.11 repeater chipsets. WiDeFi's devices will be produced using Atmel's advanced silicon germanium (SiGe) bipolar complementary metal oxide semiconductor (Bi-CMOS) technology. The companies describe WiDeFi's new WLAN Xtender as a new fundamental wireless network element that doubles the range of WLAN networks with twice the throughput and lower cost than the top competing solutions.
