SyChip Creates 802.11g Module for Mobile Devices
SyChip has introduced its WLAN 6100EB Embedded Module which will provide future 54mbps IEEE 802.11g connectivity for handheld mobile devices including smart phones, feature phones, Palm OS PDAs, gaming devices and media players.
SyChip’s WLAN 6100EB offers an industry-leading IEEE 802.11g feature set optimized for mobile handheld devices through advanced power save functions, security capability and physical form factor. The module includes a full suite of test and integration tools that enable handheld device manufacturers to rapidly accelerate their design cycle time from concept to mass production.
“The worldwide migration of WLAN to portable devices will be a major catalyst to the wireless industry in the months and years to come,” said Moses Asom, co-founder and senior vice president of marketing and business development, SyChip. “Our 6100EB Embedded Module, with its world class size, electrical performance and plug-and-play capability, is one example of the types of next-generation products that SyChip is committed to delivering to meet growing consumer demands for wireless connectivity.” The very small footprint and low-power consumption meets or exceeds the WLAN connectivity for the next generation of mobile devices.
Additional benefits of the 6100EB include broad support for leading handheld Operating Systems including Nucleus, REX, Palm, Linux and Windows Mobile; a very low profile package (1.7mm) and small footprint (12x15mm) for space-constrained applications. The module supports three host interfaces in a single package: Compact Flash, Serial Programmable Interface and Secure Digital Input/Output(CF/SPI/SDIO) thus allowing the ability to quickly interface with numerous host processors.
The 6100EB also provides Quality of Service traffic prioritization ideal for VoIP and multimedia applications in conformance to IEEE 802.11e. Robust security features are provided in compliance to IEEE 802.11i. For enhanced co-existence with Bluetooth devices, an advanced signaling interface is provided to optimize throughput performance for both Wireless LAN and Bluetooth solutions.
