Atheros Communications unveiled its next-gen "XSPAN" family of MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) wireless solutions capable of delivering 300 Mbps data rates across a home environment using a 3 x 3 transmitter/receiver architecture. The three-radio solution increases throughput and connection reliability at greater range.

The Atheros AR6001 family of WLAN solutions is based on a highly compact, power-efficient, single and dual-band single-chip design.

Atheros, which is a founding member of the Enhanced Wireless Consortium (EWC). said it is seeking to accelerate the next generation 802.11n WLAN technologies.
