When IEEE802.11b functionality is all that an application requires, Texas Instruments’ ACX100 delivers a field-tested, single-chip wireless LAN medium access controller (MAC) integrated with a Wi-Fi®-compliant (802.11b) spread spectrum baseband processor.
The ACX100 interfaces directly to a host and a radio to provide a complete solution for OEM and ODM design teams who need to turn out system-level designs quickly.
TI’s ACX100 delivers the most aggressive data rates available in the 2.4 GHz WLAN market. By employing advanced forward error correction (FEC) and modulation techniques, the ACX100 achieves much higher performance than its competitors. ACX100’s proprietary application of Packet Binary Convolutional Code (PBCC™) technology provides data rates up to 22 Mbit/s in 8.5 dB of signal-to-noise response (SNR) with a packet error rate (PER) of 10 -2.
