QUALCOMM (AirGo) Announces 802.11n Draft 2.0 Chipset

QUALCOMM announced the availability of a chipset offering full support for Draft 2.0 of the IEEE 802.11n standard. The AGN400 chipset is the fourth generation 802.11n-compliant chipset from Airgo Networks and features Airgo's True MIMO Gen-N technology.

Draft 2.0 improves upon the earlier Draft 1.0 with significantly better performance, a greater feature set and enhanced interoperability. The company said its AGN400 chipset also supports a full array of interface buses for OEM products in the retail, PC OEM, enterprise, consumer electronics and service provider market segments. Additionally, "neighbor friendly" coexistence is supported when the AGN400 is transmitting 40 MHz-mode 802.11n traffic and there are active 802.11a/b/g/n networks nearby.
