Broadcom today announced the BCM4335, a combo chip that houses 802.11ac (also called "5G Wi-Fi") and 802.11a/b/g/n/ Wi-Fi radios, in addition to Bluetooth 4.0 and FM radios on a single piece of silicon. The chip is platform agnostics, says Broadcom, and can be used in devices such as smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, and other mobile devices. The 802.11ac spec boosts Wi-Fi speeds by up to 10% compared to 802.11n, while also contributing a six-fold improvement in power efficiency. The chip has been optimized to minimize interference with LTE radios, and is Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Miracast, and Wi-Fi Passpoint certified. The BCM4335 is now sampling to select customers and is expected to reach full production in early 2013.
