First 802.11n operating at 450 Mbps
Marvell announced that it will be launching its new TopDog 11n-450 wireless 802.11n chipset technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, next week. The new wireless solution based on the 802.11n standard will deliver a blistering 450 Mbits, which is a 500% increase over the 802.11g standard, and is still offering backward compatibility to the previous wireless standards.
The new TopDog 11n-450 is built using 90nm CMOS technology. This new technology offers lower power consumption, making it a natural for integration into a variety of products that require a wireless solution with high wireless bandwidth. Marvell is also pushing the new STBC (Special Time Block Coding) technology, which can increase the distance from the access point while at the same time maintaining the high level of bandwidth throughput.
