WLAN chip set for next generation 'embedded' wireless applications now in full production

9 May 2001 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Intersil says that it has now begun volume shipments of its PRISM 2.5 for its new enterprise networking product business, PRISM/work. This wireless chipset optimised for smaller form factor applications. These include embedded applications using mini-PCI cards and single-sided PCMCIA cards especially small handheld computing devices, laptop PCs, personal digital assistants and next generation 'Web Pad' Internet appliances.

PRISM 2.5 is a highly integrated WLAN chipset solution. It features a combined baseband processor (BBP) and medium access controller (MAC) to reduce total chip count to just 4 ICs. The new single-chip BBP/MAC also incorporates both PCMCIA and USB interfaces allowing OEMs to easily integrate 11 Mbps IEEE-802.11 wireless capability USB-based wireless networking products. A version with a mini-PCI interface for embedded applications is also available.

The PRISM/work solution includes ICs, software, firmware and a companion voltage-controlled oscillator.
