Broadcom shows Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LTE chipset for vehicle-based network

Broadcom logoWired and wireless communications solutions provider Broadcom, today announced a new line of wireless chips, targeted for use in automotive infotainment applications. Featuring the latest in 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Smart Ready technology, Broadcom's wireless automotive chips will allow drivers and passengers to sync and stream content from mobile devices to the car's entertainment system and rear-seat displays. The new chips also enable high-speed connectivity beyond the vehicle, serving Internet content by way of LTE or directly from a Wi-Fi connection.

Based on the latest generation IEEE 802.11ac standard, the integrated Wi-Fi technology provides the bandwidth required for multiple in-car displays and resolution of up to 1080p, allowing uncongested 5GHz video to coexist with 2.4GHz Bluetooth hands-free operation. The low-power Bluetooth Smart Ready technology enables connectivity between the car and wearable tech and body sensors, such as the ability to monitor biometric indicators including driver fatigue, blood alcohol content and glucose levels.

Not only will Bluetooth Smart technology seamlessly sync mobile devices to the vehicle audio and display system, the technology offers great promise for new innovations in vehicle-to-person, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications (V2X). Designed to improve both driver and traffic safety, V2X communications will allow drivers to anticipate upcoming road hazards, traffic incidents and monitor speed limits. For example, when another vehicle's V2X system reports a blocked road or traffic jam on a route, V2X-equipped vehicles behind the backup will have the ability to automatically adjust speed or calculate an alternative route. Infrastructure development and smart highway initiatives using the technology are already underway throughout Europe and the United States.

Broadcom's wireless automotive portfolio consists of two devices. Both the BCM89335 5G Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Smart Ready combo chip and the BCM89071 Bluetooth + Bluetooth Smart Ready chip are now being provided in limited quantities to vehicle and device manufacturers, with widespread availability expected in 2014.
