Intersil Corp. says its new Wi-Fi system-on-chip controller represents the world's most highly integrated access point silicon solution, providing
both wireless and Ethernet connectivity and a built-in ARM9 CPU core. The highly integrated processor, called the ISL3893 WiSOC, can be used as the
basis of low cost access point and router designs that comply with "PRISM GT" (draft 802.11g) and "PRISM Duette" dual-band (802.11a, b & g) wireless
standards, the company said. Dual MII interfaces enable flexible implementations, using either single- or multi-port Ethernet PHYs.
