AzureWave Technologies, Inc. introduces the first IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN, Bluetooth and FM combo module - AW-NH610. The module is targeted to mobile devices including, Digital Still Cameras (DSCs), Portable Media Players (PMPs), and Gaming Devices, mobile phones which need small footprint package, low power consumption, multiple OS support. By using AW-NH610, 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 802.11a/b/g/n standard, AW-NH610 uses DSSS, 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-NH610. In addition to the support of WPA/WPA2 (personal) and WEP encryption, AW-NH610 also supports IEEE 802.11i security standard through AES and TKIP acceleration hardware for faster data encryption. AW-NH610 is also Cisco Compatible Extension (CCX) certified. For video, voice and multimedia applications, AW-NH610 support 802.11e Quality of Service (QoS).
For Bluetooth operation, the AW-NH610 is Bluetooth 2.1+Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) compliant. AW-NH610 supports extended Synchronous Connections (eSCO), for enhanced voice quality by allowing for retransmission of dropped packets, and Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) for reducing radio frequency interference. It provides easier to connect devices, lower power consumption and improved security.
For FM receiver/transmitter, AW-NH610 is 76-MHz to 108-MHz FM bands supported and supports the European Radio Data Systems (RDS) and the North American Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) modulations.
AW-NH610 supports standard interface SDIO v1.2 (4-bit and 1-bit) for WLAN, High-speed UART interface for BT/FM host controller interface, and PCM for BT/FM audio data. The demodulated FM audio signal is available as line-level analog stereo output. AW-NH610 is suitable for multiple mobile processors for different applications. With the combo functions and the good performance, AWNH610 is the best solution for the consumer electronics and the laptops.
