Conexant, Sharp Launch Tiny Low-Power Wi-Fi Module
Conexant Systems and Sharp Corp. said Wednesday they have teamed up to produce a tiny low-power Wi-Fi module they believe will spur development of embedded and small consumer devices.
With Conexant supplying its CX3110X wireless radio and its library of WLAN solutions for Sharp's packaging technology, the companies succeeded in developing a module of less than 100 square millimeters. Conexant's PowerSave technology provides more than 600 minutes of talk time and 300 hours of standby mode, Conexant said.
The module is compliant with the 802.11b/g standard and can be leveraged to cover other Wi-Fi standards including 802.11n.
The companies foresee the module being used in consumer applications that demand high bandwidth like wireless video transfers, advanced home networking, and CD-quality audio and DVD-quality video streaming.
