Texas Instruments Builds 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1 and FM onto Single Chip

Texas Instruments has combined three radios, 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1 EDR and FM onto a single piece of silicon. The WiLink 6.0 is the first such chip to support 802.11n, which offers greater reception and coverage than 802.11a/b/g. The BlueLink 7.0 chip includes Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, FM and FM transmit. FM transmit means any MP3s or music stored on the mobile phone can be broadcast to a nearby FM radio. The 65 nanometer process used to create both chips makes them smaller and consume less power, and cheaper for handset manufacturers to incorporate into designs. This will lead to better features on less expensive mobile phones that will appear as early as 2008.
