Texas Instruments has unveiled the industry's first single quad-radio package
, incorporating WLAN 802.11n, GPS, FM transmit/receive, and Bluetooth technologies
in one 65nm chip. The WiLink 7.0 boasts several benefits, including a 30% cost reduction, it requires 50% less space, and superior coexistence performance than existing solutions.
The WiLink offers a few unique benefits, such as hardware
mechanisms to cancel out board and chip-level RF interference at the source, and low energy inter-core communication prioritizes packet scheduling and supports more connections in parallel. A full list of features can be read after the break
, but something that jumps out is best in class 3GPP and RF performance.
