AR5007AP-G Product Overview

With the maturity of 802.11b/g technology, delivering cost effective products becomes increasingly important. Introducing the Atheros AR5007AP-G, the lowest cost single chip 802.11b/g access point and router solution. The AR5007AP-G reduces the total solution cost by 40% compared to previous generation single chip system-on-chip solutions by integrating RBOM components on-chip. With this high level of integration, the AR5007AP-G significantly reduces the total BOM and manufacturing cost of an access point or router product.  The AR5007AP-G supports industry standard 802.11b, 802.11g, security and Quality of Service (QoS). Full reference design support is available.
