Smart-Antenna Wireless Chipset

Fri, 02/25/2005 - 9:12am

Atheros introduces the AR5005VL wireless solution that employs multiple-radio, smart-antenna technologies to deliver MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) performance and throughput to standard 802.11 WLAN products. The AR5005VL chipset uses phased array beamforming, cyclic delay diversity, and optimal receive combining to deliver high performance. The AR5005VL chipset is available in both 802.11g and 802.11a/g versions, supporting configurations with up to four antennas. These chipsets deliver up to 50 Mb/s of actual user throughput when operating on both sides of the wireless connection. The AR5005VL chipset supports up to four antennas to extend range and improve network performance. The chipset uses multiple radio outputs to focus a coherent 802.11a/g signal towards the receiver — combining the techniques of phased array beamforming and cyclic delay diversity — in a way that is fully compatible with existing WLAN radios. t1>p> t3>Atheros Communications, Inc./t3>
