Present electronic world includes calculating the apparatus PC field , amusement / communication equipment consumption electronic field With the cell phone mobile field . Unfortunately, three major field this can’t well communication between each other, have now, connect, either can’t realize to to support in real time media. But the world is changing, and move and serve and extend towards the family with the TV, PC, moving and consuming the electronic field to begin to prone to merging, forms new commerce and use model on the market.
The prevalence of wireless technology is one of the drive factors of the back of above-mentioned change. Because consumer’s acceptance of Wi-Fi, bluetooth and honeycomb is very fast, each kind of platform is playing an important role in family and enterprise group’s network. For example, Wi-Fi is in key turning point, those apparatus with Wi-Fi functions have been expected to account for over half of all home-network linkups by the end of this year. This including 139 million notebook computers suppose that has allocated Wi-Fi absolutely ,According to the estimation by ABI Research Company, among them there will be the biggest Wi-Fi market share in the Asian-Pacific area.
ABI Research Company think until increasingly many ISP begin, use as standard the intersection of CPE and a portion of apparatus the intersection of guard station and gateway, the treble service will continue becoming driving force of future development. For example, China Telecom has already begun to dispose the basic DSL Wi-Fi gateway, has regarded it as the upgrading apparatus of the basic DSL modem. In the country like China, the price is the greatest development obstacle, broadband ISP will continue offering the basic modem, but according to the estimation by ABI Research Company, the price disparity between gateway and modem will shrink constantly. Repertoire that a lot of families that though already there are gateway products at present can not still use these gateways for the moment, but as time goes on, the increasingly many family will have wireless devices such as many PC, even mobile phone or game machine,etc., they can receive these gateway products into family’s network then. The total number of family networks of the Asian-Pacific area will be from more than 29 million 85 million rising to 2012 years in 2007. The majority which increases quantity will come from China, only China will be close to the network of 42 million families by 2012. The fast popularization of family’s network of broadband will lead to the fact the wireless applications of these countries will be developed rapidly, thus bring the fairly good chance for the development of Wi-Fi technology.Fig. 1: According to the network development trend of family of the Asian-Pacific area from 2005 to 2012 of what the countries and regions subdivided.
In addition, a lot of in the world study the company to think Wi-Fi market will continue developing towards a plurality of front fields, and as Wi-Fi gets deeply to more consumer-elcetronics devices, the products based on IEEE802.11g standard will be continuing expanding in the whole 2008 and 2009. Because the present 802.11g solution cost is low, the consumption is little, this platform will mix wireless technology as prize of broadband gateway, apparatus of the game, media player, mobile phone and PC peripheral hardware,etc., will help apparatus manufacturers to offer stronger wireless connections performance with smaller external dimension together with other wireless technology.
BCM4325 of Broadcom Company is an example which represents this trend. This product is that industry combines Wi-Fi, bluetooth and FM to the first solution on the single 65nm silicon chip. The high solution of integration reduce, get one the intersection of mobile device and size, cost and consumption taken all three wireless technology intergration greatly, can offer the score to set up Wi-Fi and bluetooth performance with better solution at the same time. The improvement of this performance benefits from the integrated CMOS work of Broadcom Company and shows the complicated and complete coexistent algorithm.
