Broadcom unveils new WLAN VoIP chipset

Broadcom unveiled the new core logic for VoIP/Wi-Fi handsets. The chipset includes BCM1160 VoIP processor and BCM4318 AirForce One 54g WLAN solution. The reference design is to be showcased at Fall 2004 VON Conference & Expo.

BCM1160 is Broadcom´s new VoIP development designed for highly-integrated low-power systems. The ARM9-based processor combines an audio codec, directional microphone, speaker, 1.3 Mp camera, 262K-color LCD display and USB interfaces.

BCM4318 2.4 GHz transceiver includes a receiver, IEEE 802.11a/g, MAC baseband processor. It´s made using SecureEZSetup and SmartRadio technologies providing connection even over large distances from a WLAN router. The solution supports WPA, WPA2, AES encryption, TKIP and IEEE 802.1x. Chip modifications have PCI, Mini PCI, CardBus, PCMCIA/Compact Flash, SDIO (4/1-wire SPI) interfaces and supports 1, 2, 5.5, 6, 9, 11, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 54 Mbps throughputs.
