Infineon launches new line of single-chip WLAN ICs

Systems based on the new ICs are expected to require less number of external components and no external memory

By CBR Staff Writer

Infineon Technologies has launched XWAY WAVE100, a new family of single-chip WLAN integrated circuits (ICs). According to the company, the new ICs provide enhanced performance for wireless network access points that are compliant to the 802.11n draft standard and the 802.11 b/g standard.

Infineon said that the new XWAY family integrates the WLAN Baseband, Media Access Controller (MAC), RF, Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) and Power Amplifier (PA) functionalities. Systems based on the new XWAY family, are expected to require less number of external components and require no external memory.

With the new XWAY family, the company provides an integrated tool-box to support trimming with temperature, voltage and supply monitoring during standard operation mode, the company said.

According to Infineon, the new XWAY IC’s are available with either SDIO or PCI interface. When used in combination with the XWAY AMAZON-SE and XWAY ARX182 ADSL2+ single-chips, the SDIO variant frees up the USB 2.0 host interface of the xDSL for other tasks such as connecting a hard disk, printer or 3G dongle.

The PCI variant can be used in combination with XWAY ARX100 family for featured WLAN gateways.

Christian Wolff, president of wireline communications division at Infineon, said: “With the new XWAY WAVE100 family, Infineon enables customers to meet growing consumer demand for high-speed wireless connectivity by offering WLAN 802.11n 1×1 with up to four times more speed than earlier generation WLANs at the price of legacy 802.11b/g systems.”

Reportedly, the new XWAY family IC’s are compliant to the European Union Code of Conduct (CoC) for broadband equipment energy efficiency.
