Marvell Offers Single Chip Solution for Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 3.0

Marvell announced that its 88W8688 Bluetooth Wi-Fi combination chip fully supports the recently announced Bluetooth 3.0 + HS (High Speed) specification. The Marvell implementation is designed to allow the new Bluetooth radio to deliver up to 10 to 15 times the throughput of standard Bluetooth 2.1 implementations - at least 24 Mbps. Marvell solutions are differentiated by a superior 802.11 Protocol Adaptation Layer (PAL) that supports simultaneous connection of Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi using the same radio.
