BCM43xx AirForce?54g® 802.11a/b/g PCI Express® Transceiver
Designed for client devices based on the PCI Express architecture, the Broadcom BCM43xx is a high-performance 802.11a/g baseband processor with an integrated media access controller (MAC). The highly-integrated solution delivers superior performance, range and ease-of-use in a small, cost-effective package -providing new levels of design flexibility for wireless-enabled notebook PCs, printers and other client devices.
PCI Express is a state-of-the-art bus architecture that addresses the needs of next-generation computing and communications products. Whereas today's embedded applications push the limits of the parallel PCI architecture, PCI Express uses serial interconnect technology to deliver higher bit rates that are better suited for performance-intensive multimedia applications. The PCI Express architecture also offers greater scalability, due to its low-cost, low pin-count design and software compatibility with existing PCI infrastructure.
The BCM94312HMGB features a shared antenna system and offers comprehensive Bluetooth and Wi-Fi software to streamline the design and manufacturing of notebooks, Netbooks and UMPCs.
