Single chip 802.11a/b/g solution to become mainstream

The single-chip IEEE802.11a/b/g WLAN solution will be able to replace the 802.11b/g chip as the mainstream WLAN solution by the end of this year, according to Michael Lu, president of Taiwan-based WLAN RF module maker Airoha Technology.

The 802.11a/b/g WLAN solutions were originally priced much higher than the 802.11b/g solutions because they had to include two power amplifiers (PAs) as well as a low-drop output (LDO) regulator, Lu explained.

The 802.11a/b/c solutions now include integrated PAs and LDOs into the solution, allowing WLAN chip vendors to reduce their prices, Lu added.

In addition, Intel?s efforts to push sales of 802.11a/b/g-enabled Sonama notebooks will also help drive the growth of 802.11a/b/g solutions in the second half of the year, Lu added.
