Wireless Chips

Writes SJ Mercury News on the various startups working to get new chips ready for the coming future:

In the not-too-distant future, a single box in your home will be able to send different cable channels and Web sites to multiple screens over a wireless network. Your car will eventually be able to download maps, MP3 music files and detailed traffic reports as you drive by specified “info-fueling” stations.

These advanced wireless applications, powered by a communications standard known as 802.11a, are in development now, with many chip makers working on cramming combinations of radio technology and digital signal processing onto pieces of silicon small enough and cheap enough to be used in all kinds of devices.
