And here's some more news from Marvell! They've just announced the coming of the Avastar line of wireless connectivity solutions. The Avastar family is made up of single and multi-function WiFi, Bluetooth, FM, and GPS radios. Marvell claims that these radios will provide their devices with lower power consumption, improved wireless performance, decreased footprint, and advanced features. What does the Avastar line mean for you? In the near future, your WiFi devices (smartbooks, DTVs, etc) will drain less power, be thinner, and work better. Advances like this aren't nearly as visible as major product roll-outs, but they are every bit as important. The only reason we have devices as thin and functional as, say, the Nexus One is because multiple manufacturers like Marvell continually pushed the envelope. When components get smaller, cheaper, faster, and more efficient, so do the larger devices they are installed in. So thanks, Marvell. We can look forward to a world of sleeker gadgets with better battery life, thanks in part to you.
