Philips[edit]

  • Philips first offered WLAN RFIC's for use with other chipsets.
It then developed its own 802.11b chipset, used in Philips 1st and 2nd generation.
  • Later it acquired Systemonic in 2003 for its 802.11abg chipset,
and started offering 802.11abg chipset based on Systemonic chipset/IP.

Timeline[edit]

On the 2 March 2015, it was revealed that NXP will acquire Freescale.

RFIC Chips[edit]

Before 1st generation[edit]

  • SA2400A - 2.4GHz Low-voltage RF transceiver, just a RFIC (ABE/BBE)
Used with Wi-Fi chipsets from other vendors, such as ZyDAS ZD1201
  • SA1630 - IF Quadrature transceiver
Philips SA1630BE (LQFP-48)
  • MA1021 - Low-voltage frequency synthesizer (900MHz/2GHz)
Philips UMA1021M (BiCMOS, SSOP16)

First generation[edit]

  • BGW100 RF SiP:
  • SA2405 - RFIC transceiver (500nm BiCMOS)
  • SA2411 - optional RFPA (+19dBm)
  • SA2443 - MAC/BB 802.11b (180nm CMOS)

Second generation[edit]

  • BGW200 - SiP 802.11b
  • SA2420 - 2.4GHz Low-voltage RF transceiver (w/ LNA + mixer)
Philips SA2420DH (TSSOP24)

Third generation[edit]

Philips third-generation Wi-Fi chipsets are basically relabeled Systemonic chipsets, after acquisition.

  • SA5250 - MAC/BB 802.11abg
  • SA5251 - 2.4G + 5G RFIC
  • SA2451 - 2.4G-only RFIC

SoC[edit]

Poseidon[edit]

The Poseidon family of SOCs was originally developed by Philips then transfered over to NXP.

Poseidon SoC on Linux-MIPS wiki
  • PR31100 is a single-chip, low-cost, integrated embedded processor.
PR31100 consists of a 40MHz R3000 3.3V static CMOS CPU with 4K Instruction/1K Data cache memory, without MMU,
multiple DMA channels and a high-performance and flexible Bus Interface Unit (BIU) and external I/O modules.
  • PR31500 - Poseidon v1.0
PR31500 is a 37MHz R3000 3.3V static CMOS CPU with R3000A TLB and 4K Instrution/1K Data cache.
PR31500 also contains multi-channel DMA controller, ROM, Flash, RAM, DRAM, SDRAM, SRAM,
and PCMCIA controller and Dual-UART, SPI and High-speed serial interface controllers.
Philips licensed a version of Toshiba's R3900 MIPS RISC processor core for the PR31500.
• TwoChipPIC chipset consists of the PR31500 microcontroller and the UCB1100 analog interface chip.
The UCB1100 provides a 12-bit audio codec and a 14-bit modem codec, a touchscreen interface,
and a 10-bit A/D converter for measuring battery voltages and other analog inputs.
  • PR31700 - Poseidon v1.5
The PR31700 is a 75MHz R3000 (PR3901 Processor Core) with MMU, 4K Instruction/1K Data cache.
PR31700 also contains multi-channel DMA controller, ROM, Flash, RAM, DRAM, SDRAM, SRAM, and
PCMCIA controller. It is also identical to the Toshiba 3912 processor from the TX39XX family.
It is pretty clear that Philips licensed or bought this core directly from Toshiba.
• The TwoChipPIC Plus chipset consists of Philips PR31700 and UCB1200 analog chip.
