The article introduces the AGN400 chipset, the first chipset from Qualcomm Inc. that offers full support for Draft 2.0 of the IEEE 802.11n standard. Acquired by Qualcomm from Airgo Networks Inc., the chipset features Airgo's True MIMO Gen-N technology which capitalizes on its patented innovations in multiple antenna technology to extend the effective range and bolster data throughput for consumer Wi-Fi and next generation wireless digital home entertainment devices. Also, the chipset is operating on the 2.400 to 2.485 gigahertz and 4.920 to 5.825 gigahertz industrial, scientific, and medical bands through orthogonal frequency division multiplexing and direct sequence spread spectrum.
