AR6102 SDIO 802.11 b/g Development Card

AR6102 Description

The Atheros AR6102 is a member of the WLAN ROCm family of chips. The compact size and low power consumption of this design make it an ideal vehicle for adding WLAN to hand-held and other battery-powered consumer electronic devices. The IEEE 802.11g (2.4 GHz) standard is supported by this chipset.

The AR6102 family includes a highly integrated, RF front-end (Power Amplifier, Low-Noise Amplifier and RF switch) and high-frequency reference clock, enabling low-cost designs with minimal external components. Advanced architecture and protocol techniques save power during sleep, stand-by and active states.

The AR6102 family supports 2, 3 and 4 wire Bluetooth coexistence protocols with advanced algorithms for predicting channel usage by the co-located Bluetooth transceiver. A 26MHz reference clock output is also available, eliminating the need for a dedicated BT clock.

The AR6102 provides multiple peripheral interfaces including UART
