Processors Support More Than One Wireless Standard

Two new ICs, the e8024 voice and data broadband wireless gateway processor and the e9024 voice and data wireless LAN processor, are said to be the first devices capable of concurrently supporting IEEE 802.11a, operating at 5.7 GHz, as well as industry standard wireless protocols, such as IEEE 802.11b, Bluetooth, HomeRF, and HiperLAN 2. The two processors, which combine a MPU/DSP core with a hardware enabled OS, are said to eliminate problems with quality of service, interference and performance that occur when the direct sequencing IEEE 802.11b protocol coexists on a wireless network with other wireless standards. Pricing for the e8024 is $20 each/1,000 and for the e9024, $25. EMBEDDED WIRELESS DEVICES INC., Pleasanton, CA. (925) 251-6200.
