Intel Crams WiFi, WiMAX and DVB-H Into One Chip

intel_logo.JPGIntel announced today that it had developed a single chip to handle signals for WiFi, WiMAX and DVB-H. The chip measures just 24-millimeters^2 and consumes only 79mW.

While DVB-H is more or less irrelevant in the States, this chip could still be significant. And considering the capability to stick three radio receivers onto one die, Intel could feasibly rip DVB-H out and add some wireless technology relevant to North America.

At any rate, I’d expect to start seeing devices with this thing in it sometime next year.
