In 2002, the WLAN chipset market grew close to 300% from $8M to $23.8M and the prospects for 2003 look equally good. Intersil, RFMD, and Atmel commanded two thirds of the WLAN chipset market in 2002, with Intersil alone accounting for more than half of the market’s total revenues. More players continue to enter this space including recent moves by Texas Instruments, Atmel, RFMD, Broadcom, Atheros, and Intel.

The transceiver portion of the chipset is critical to multi-mode operation, performance at higher frequencies, device footprint, and effective power management. This white paper shows how the top companies stack up against each other, helping you determine who the leaders will be in 2003 and beyond.
