博通公司的BCM4342是单片802.11n方案,是完整的片上系统(SOC),采用独特的Intensi-fi架构,为企业802.11n接入点降低了开发成本,加快了产品面市时间. BCM4342集成了802.11媒体接入控制器(MAC),基带处理器, 2.4 GHz 和5 GHz无线电收发器以及其它的WLAN元件.而Intensi-fi架构可提供高达300 Mbps的数据速率,可在更大范围内提供主流的无线连接.本文介绍了BCM4342的主要性能,系统优势,系统方框图和主要的性能指标.

BCM4342 Intensi-fi™ Single-Chip 802.11n Enterprise Solution
The BCM4342 is a complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) that accelerates time-to-market and reduces development costs for enterprise 802.11n access points. The 65-nm BCM4342 combines an 802.11 medium access controller (MAC), a baseband processor, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios and other WLAN components onto a single silicon die. This high level of integration not only reduces the footprint and BOM cost, but also cuts power consumption in half. As a result, enterprise access points can now operate simultaneously on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands while being powered by a companys existing Power over Ethernet (802.3af) infrastructure.

Broadcoms unique Intensi-fi architecture delivers data rates of up to 300 Mbps, maintains wireless connections over a larger coverage area, and offers the greatest channel capacity of any 802.11n solution. When the BCM4342 is paired with FASTPATH Unified Access Point Software, the turnkey solution enables wireless APs that extend the business-critical features of a companys wired network, while bringing the benefits of 802.11n to mobile workers.
