5G WiFi Combo Chip for Smartphones and Tablets unveiled by Broadcom

First to Sample 802.11ac Solutions for Complete Ecosystem of Consumer Electronic Devices; 5th Generation of Wi-Fi Delivers Dramatic Speed, Range and Power Efficiency.

The 2013 Apple iPad, iPhone and Android devices will have 5G Wi-Fi. Broadcom announced their 5G Wi-Fi chip for tablets and smartphones today. The Broadcom BCM4335 is the industry's first complete 5G WiFi combo chip for smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks and other mobile devices. 

5G WiFi, the 5th generation of Wi-Fi based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard, is a major evolutionary step from the existing 802.11a/b/g/n networks. 5G WiFi dramatically improves the wireless range in the home, allowing consumers to watch HD-quality video from more devices, in more places, simultaneously. With 3X faster speeds, consumers can download web content from a mobile device, and synch large files such as videos, in a fraction of the time it would take on a similar 802.11n device. Since 5G WiFi transfers the same volume of data at a much faster rate, devices enter low-power mode quickly and, as a result, are up to six times more power efficient than equivalent 802.11n solutions.
