Separately, Broadcom announced at CES a Wi-Fi router chip it says provides four-times greater routing performance compared with previous devices at comparable price points. The single chip device, dubbed the BCM5356, is targeted at entry-level Wi-Fi routers that provide the speed and reliability of higher-end models.

Broadcom suggest that because of the tight integration, OEMs can design very small routers that can reduce the total system cost by up to 33 per cent compared to previous 802.11g designs.

The chip and turnkey BCM95356SSNR reference design are now sampling to early access customers with volume production scheduled for Q1 of 2009.

The part integrates an 802.11 media access controller (MAC) and base band, a 2.4 GHz radio, a 333 MHz MIPS 74K CPU core, a 5-port Fast Ethernet switch and physical layer (PHY) device, CMOS power amplifier and several options for system memory interfaces.
