Consumer Electronics WLAN Development Kit

Texas Instruments (TI) announced its Consumer Electronics WLAN Developer Kit 2.0 (CE WLAN DK). TI�s latest development kit provides manufacturers with the systems-level building blocks they need to add Wi-Fi connectivity to battery-operated devices from digital still cameras and portable media players to emerging communications and entertainment applications.

According to Dell�Oro Group reports, wireless LANs are increasingly used to distribute �triple-play� services (data, voice, and video) in the home. Dell�Oro forecasts shipments of residential DSL gateways with wireless LAN capability to triple from 2005 to 2008, rising from 10 to 30 million. To capitalize on this trend, consumer electronics (CE) companies should look to incorporate wireless capabilities in their products to connect to these fast growing networks.

TI offers complete development platforms for manufacturers to embed Wi-Fi in their devices. The company has already enabled leading broadband CPE providers to add WLAN to their DSL, cable and voice products and is extending this systems-level approach to the CE sector.

Products leveraging TI�s recently announced CE WLAN DK 1.0 for stationary and 2.0 for portable applications enable consumers to enjoy a Wi-Fi connectivity experience regardless of their location. TI technology allows users to easily configure their WLAN and exchange audio and video files or other data wirelessly between portable devices, without the fear of dropped signals or loss of battery power.
