The new XWAY™ WAVE100 ICs provide a high-performance and cost-effective solution for wireless network access points that are compliant to the 802.11n draft standard for data rates up to 150Mbit/s as well as the 802.11 b/g standard. The XWAY WAVE100 family lowers the total system cost for home gateway manufacturers, with a significantly reduced RBOM (Rest of Bill-of-Material) and improved manufacturing throughput. Additionally, it is fully compliant to the European Union Code of Conduct (CoC) for broadband equipment energy efficiency. The single-chip XWAY WAVE100 family integrates the WLAN Baseband, Media Access Controller (MAC), RF, Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) and Power Amplifier (PA) functionalities. Systems based on the XWAY WAVE100 family require the industry’s lowest number of external components and need no external memory…
