AzureWave Technologies, Inc. introduces the first IEEE 802.11b/g/n WLAN & Bluetooth & FM combo module IC - AW-NH387. The module IC is targeted to mobile devices including Mobile Phones, Digital Still Cameras (DSCs), Portable Media Players (PMPs), Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), and Gaming Devices which need small footprint package, low power consumption, multiple interfaces and OS support. By using AW-NH387, customers can easily enable Wi-Fi, BT and FM embedded applications with the benefits of high design flexibility, short development cycle, and quick time-to market.
Compliance with the IEEE 802.11b/g/n standard, AW-NH387 uses Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), DBPSK, DQPSK, CCK and QAM baseband modulation technologies. A high level of integration and full implementation of the power management functions specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard minimize the system power requirements by using AW-NH387. In addition to the support of WPA/WPA2 and WEP 64-bit and 128-bit encryption, AW-NH387 also supports the IEEE 802.11i security standard through the implementation of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)/Counter Mode CBC-MAC Protocol (CCMP), Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) with Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)/Cipher-Based Message Authentication Code (CMAC), and WLAN Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure (WAPI) security mechanisms. For video, voice and multimedia applications, AW-NH387 support 802.11e Quality of Service (QoS).
AW-NH387 supports Bluetooth 3.0 + High Speed (HS) and is complaint with Bluetooth 2.1 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR). Bluetooth 3.0 + HS can make it easier to connect devices with lower power consumption and improved security.
AW-NH387 provides FM Tx/Rx function locating on 76-108MHz worldwide. FM bands supported and support the European Radio Data Systems (RDS) and the North American Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) modulations.
AW-NH387 supports SDIO and G-SPI for WLAN to the host processor. High speed UART, SDIO,
AW-NH387 is suitable for multiple mobile processors for different applications. With the support cellular phone co-existence, AW-NH387 is also the best solution for mobile phones and PDA phones applications.
PCM/I2S interface are available to connect the BT core the host processor. For FM Tx/Rx, the device supports I2S /analog stereo audio interfaces. An I2C-compatible interface is available to connect FM Tx/Rx to the host processor, as well. FM Tx/Rx can also share the host interface with Bluetooth.
