WildPass, developed by Infineon Technologies, is an integrated secure dual-band 802.11a/g wireless network processor system-on-chip (SoC) solution. Featuring multiple on-chip interfaces including USB 2.0 and Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE), WildPass can be seamlessly integrated into various network applications, such as VoIP access points, routers, and gateways as well as media and print servers. It supports simultaneous “Triple Play” of voice, video, and data for both LAN and WAN connections. The dual-band and WPA2 (802.11i) security functionality of WildPass and its on-board WLAN transceiver enable it to communicate securely with any existing WLAN solution. WildPass allows system makers to reduce component costs, system complexity, and design cycles, hence answering more efficiently growing demand for integrated wireless Triple Play access devices.
WildPass also offers PCM and SPI for Voice over IP applications; MII for connecting to broadband uplink technologies (such as xDSL, fiber or cable-modem); and SDRAM and flash for external memory devices. Its hardware NAT (Network Address Translation) engine allows numerous PCs or Internet-enabled devices (video-on-demand media servers, gaming consoles, personal media gateways, etc.) in a network to access the Internet at the same time, at guaranteed full wired speeds for both LAN and WAN connections. WildPass comes in a 289 or 324 BGA package. Samples are available now, with volume production planned for next month. For further information, go to www.infineon.com/WildPass.
