BROADCOM 802.11n Network Adapter Driver is a next-generation wireless network ultra-low-power 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 combo chip developed by Broadcom for compatibility in mobile platforms and accessories. The model was designed to deliver up to 3X longer battery life compared to Broadcom’s previous model of combo chips, that has enabled OEMs to design a new wave of high-performance connected devices. The adapter was designed to allow OEMs to integrate Wi-Fi into different kinds of platforms that have been traditionally powered by a Bluetooth feature alone because of battery size or constrained power budgets. In the case of some applications, the adapter Wi-Fi consumes 80 per cent less power than the most common Bluetooth solutions today. This kind of reduction rate in Wi-Fi power consumption enables OEMs to leverage the increased throughput and range of Wi-Fi which allow delivering new use cases in a wide variety of devices.
