SyChip, a fabless semiconductor company, will incorporate Intersil Corp.'s PRISM 3 chip with zero intermediate frequency (ZIF) architecture into its secure digital (SD) form factor WLAN card.

The SyChip WLAN card, measuring 50mm long, 24mm wide and only 2.1mm thick, will provide 802.11b connectivity for PDAs that have built-in SD slots. The SD card will enable wireless connectivity for these devices without the added bulk and cost of adaptor sleeves. Further applications for this card are expected to expand into next-generation designs for devices such as cellular telephones, digital cameras and printers.

SyChip expects an evaluation card for the module and support materials for the reference design to be available by the fourth quarter this year, with samples of the full SD-format WLAN card by the end of 2002.

"Enabled by the high levels of integration afforded by our PRISM 3 chipset, SyChip's design advances Wi-Fi connectivity to the next level of miniaturization," said Larry Ciaccia, VP and general manager of Intersil's Wireless Networking Products Group. "SyChip's SD card transforms PRISM technology into the smallest WLAN form factor in the world and represents future generations of handheld devices that will provide mobile connectivity and anywhere, anytime access to the Internet and personal data."
