List of PCIe / NGFF devices
While doing some research for BrcmPatchRAM I came across 
a list of PCIe / NGFF devices.

Knowing that more people now are looking for compatible PCIe /
 Mini-PCIe / NGFF devices for OS X, here is what I found:

All known current NGFF wifi devices can be found using a wikidev query:

PCIe / Mini PCIe Broadcom devices based on BCM4360 (Compatible with OS X):

Mini PCIe (half) Broadcom devices based on BCM43224 (Compatible with OS X):

Mini PCIe (half) Broadcom devices based on BCM943225 (Compatible with OS X):

PCIe / Mini PCIe / Mini PCIe (half) / NGFF Broadcom devices based on BCM4352 
(Compatible with OS X):

3 Broadcom WiFi chips are present in NGFF devices only:

BCM4352 [14e4:43b1] (Supported through Toleda's efforts, 2x2:2 867Mbps)
BCM4356 [14e4:43ec] (Unknown, very new chip, abgn+ac, 2x2:2 - 867Mbps)
BCM43162 (Unknown, very new chip 2014-Feb, abgn+ac, 1x1:1 - 433Mbps)

​Regarding Wifi & Bluetooth Combo the following devices are at least known:
