We were surprised to find that a proper three-stream N adapter really can provide significantly higher bandwidth even with lower signal levels.
Ubicom and Ralink have created reference designs for networked music players.
I was briefed by both Atheros and Ralink last week on their announcements at this week's Computex over in Taipei. While it wasn't the sole reason for the calls, I was able to get a feel for why we still haven't seen any three-stream N routers, even though the first were announced well over a year ago.
Ralink Technology today announced a 450 Mbps, 3 stream, draft 802.11n router chipset with beamforming technology.
Ralink Technology today announced what it says are the first 802.11n single chip AP/router SoCs (System On Chip) with integrated five-port 10/100 Ethernet Switch and PHY.
Wi-Fi chipset maker Ralink Technology today announced what it claims is the industry's "longest range" draft-802.11n Wi-Fi chipset. The company said its RT2800 chipset "doubles the range of high-performance wireless systems" through the use of patented, low-noise circuitry. Ralink also said the chipset is designed so that changes to the current draft-802.11n standard can be done via firmware upgrade.
