Broadcom’s Wi-Fi Router Chip Cranks Up Integration

The BCM5354 Wi-Fi router combines the company's 54g wireless LAN baseband and MAC with a 2.4-GHz IEEE 802.11g radio, Fast Ethernet switch, and MIPS processor into a single chip. It supports multi-BSSID, which allows users to create and access multiple networks through a single access point. This level of integration is said to eliminate the need for up to 125 components required for a Wi-Fi router and reduces the number of printed circuit board layers by 50%. The device also features unique enhancement technology that improves the range of wireless devices by up to 50% and provides an additional 25% improvement over the company's previous generation technology with no increase in power usage. Additionally, the router hosts OneDriver software that offers security and ease of use for wireless networks. For price, call BROADCOM CORP., Irvine, CA. (949) 450-8700.
