Implements the 2-stream 802.11ac specification to enable speeds up to 867 Mbps in PC and consumer digital TV products.
The single-chip dual-band transceiver integrates all the major functional blocks needed to implement a complete 802.11ac wireless sub-system, including radio, baseband and Media Access Control (MAC). This highly integrated solution provides the increased coverage and throughput performance required for high-quality video and media applications in the home and enterprise. Personal computers and digital TV/ media devices enabled with the BCM43526 will offer up to gigabit speeds over Wi-Fi networks.
80 MHz bandwidth is 2 times wider than current 802.11n solutions
Dual-band operation compatible with legacy 802.11n networks
256-QAM, a higher modulation scheme that increases data transfer efficiency
802.11ac-compliant transmit and receive beamforming for extended coverage for 802.11ac and legacy devices
Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) Codes for increased rate at range
USB 2.0 host interface
Enhanced Bluetooth coexistence interface support for seamless BT + 5G WiFi operation
