Marvell Debuts All-in-One Wireless Chip


A new wireless chip promises a comprehensive connectivity package in a single chip. The Marvell Avastar 88W8897 combines IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi, near-field communication, and Bluetooth on a single low-power processor. The chip lets mobile device users connect to content in public venues, including retail marketing information and maps, and make payments at stores when brought close to a reader. Marvell claims the processor offers the first high-performance multiple input, multiple output combination radio with Wi-Fi data rates up to 300 Mbits per second. The company expects products with the chip to be available in 2013. (PhysOrg)(CNET)(Marvell)
