Silicon Integrated Systems Corporation announced that 6 manufacturers of USB WLAN dongles will be using the SiS162U WLAN single-chip Medium Access Controller (MAC) and Baseband Processors (BBP) in their latest products for the growing WLAN market sector.
The SiS162U is designed to be the lightest and most compact wireless chipset, with no need for extra Flash or SRAM and is only 10mm x 10mm. The hardware circuit engine of the SiS162U supports 64-/128-bit WEP/WPA encryption coding to provide solid data security capacity, and the programmable software design helps minimizes the power needed for operation.
In addition, SiS162U is expected to meet the requirements of FCC, Wi-Fi and WHQL. SiS162U works well with RF/PA hardware, such as Airoha, GCT+Winspring and Maxim, providing a flexible solution. It supports both Ad-Hoc and infrastructure networks and allows clients to enjoy extremely comprehensive wireless networking backup. The SiS162U is designed to support the 802.11b and USB 2.0 standards. SiS162U supports all widely available operating systems and is supplied with appropriate software for testing and tuning purposes.
The list of WLAN dongle products based on the SiS 162U includes CNUSB-611 from CNET Technology, WL-1207 by CC&C Technologies, USBWLS from Billionton Systems, WLB-1500 from Cameo Communications, EW-7119U by EDIMAX Technology, and Global Sun Technology’s GL-2411UD.
