Atheros Introduces Two New 802.11n Router Solutions

Atheros Communications announced two new 802.11n solutions for Wi-Fi routers and residential gateways. The new Align AR933x and XSPAN AR934x system-on-chip (SoC) solutions include all of the major components required to build 1-stream or 2-stream 802.11n routers, respectively. The designs combine an 802.11n media access controller (MAC), baseband and radio, with a network processor, radio front-end, Ethernet switch, and other components onto a single silicon die. This integration reduces the number of external components required to build Wi-Fi products, enabling smaller and more cost-effective wireless platforms with robust 802.11n performance and advanced features.
