"Intel to integrate WiFi in ICH6W chip"

Posted on Thursday, December 04 2003 @ 17:40:47 CET by


A few days ago I posted that Intel will integrate WiFi capabilities in his upcoming Grantsdale chipset. More details about this transpired on X-bit Labs today. According to them all the necessary WiFi logic will be integrated into Intel his I/O controller hub, in this case called ICH6W.
ICH6W-Caswell enables Intel Integrated AP technology, which, along with certain integrated Intel and 3rd party solutions is targeted to provide a low cost and easy to implement solution for a small wireless home network. Besides, the ICH6 typically supports 4 Serial ATA-150 ports, 4 PCI Express x1 ports, Azalia audio and some other useful I/O features.

The whole software Wi-Fi solution from Intel will not include antenna or other hardware needed to set-up an actual network, so, the whole Intel’s software Caswell may cost additional $10 to $15 to end-user, still a lot cheaper than the vast majority of hardware solutions.
