Broadcom Corp. has released the AirForce BCM4712 system-on-a-chip that includes a 54g MAC/baseband and integrated 10/100 Ethernet and USB interfaces.

Featuring a hardware-based AES acceleration for upgradeability to the future IEEE 802.11i security standard, the product supports a software feature set that will enable network equipment vendors to offer low cost, 54g wireless routers and access points aimed at small business and residential customers.
