Advanced handsets offer computing, organizing, documenting, multimedia, and communication applications that require fast, robust, and inexpensive wireless connectivity that is best serviced by Wireless LAN. The most common method of bringing in WLAN functionality into a handset is through the integration of a self-contained WLAN module offering a low load on the host processor. The extremely small and ultra-low power RS9110-N-11-01 module is an ideal solution for this application – it integrates a single stream 802.11n MAC/BBP – the RS9110, an RF transceiver and front-end, and firmware implementing all the WLAN protocol and power management functionality required for standards compliant Wi-Fi connectivity. The host application processor runs a WLAN network driver and provides WLAN configuration functionality to the user. A reference design based on RS9110 is Wi-Fi certified for single stream 802.11n Draft 2.0, WPA2, WMM, WMM-PS, WPS, and Voice-Personal, making this solution one of the most advanced in the market today.
