802.11b/54g® Integrated Wireless AP/Router Reference Design
AirForce™ BCM94712 system-on-a-chip includes a 200MHz MIPS32™ processor and 54g® MAC/Baseband, along with integrated 10/100 Ethernet and USB interfaces and, combined with the BCM2050 2.4 GHz radio, enables 802.11g wireless LAN access points, routers and gateways to be produced in smaller form factors and at lower costs than previously possible. The BCM94712 handles access point, routing and gateway functions at full 802.11g 54 Mbps speeds while also providing backwards compatibility to 802.11b devices. This system-on-a-chip platform is capable of a full suite of functionality including data processing, routing, security, network management and communications controller functions.
- Compact, sophisticated, and low-cost access point includes chipset: BCM4712, BCM2050, and AC101L
- 10/100 Ethernet LAN port with Auto-MDIX
- Production-quality reference code provides a turnkey solution and compatibility with BCM47XX wireless network processors
- Advanced high performance baseband processor with integrated medium access controller (MAC) supports upcoming IEEE standards and Wi-Fi Alliance initiatives such as Wireless Multimedia Extensions (WME), 802.11i Security and 802.11e QoS for built-in future proof designs.
