Nintendo Wii Game Console to Sport Broadcom Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Posted on 11-May-2006 00:08. | Tags Filed under: News.



The new Nintendo Wii game console will include Broadcom Corporation's Broadcom Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies. The gaming system will feature the first Bluetooth wireless game controller system to ship "in the box", along with an integrated Wi-Fi solution for online gaming.

According to Broadcom, gaming devices are among the increasingly diverse array of consumer electronics that integrate some form of advanced connectivity, which enables users to engage in dynamic online gaming while interacting with their game consoles in new and exciting ways.

The Bluetooth technology used in the game controller helps eliminate the cables between the console, handheld game controllers and other accessories. The Bluetooth technology used in the controllers provide low latency to accommodate the fast rate of interaction between the controller and the console.

The Wii console also includes Broadcom's single-chip 54g Wi-Fi solution, which provides a high-performance wireless link for playing online or multi-player games. The console takes advantage of key features including Broadcom BroadRange technology, which allows users to maintain higher data rates further from the access point.

Both Bluetooth and 802.11g Wi-Fi products operate in the 2.4 GHz radio frequency band, introducing the possibility of radio interference between the two radio signals. To address this concern, Nintendo used some optimisation of the wireless performance for optimal simultaneous throughput of both technologies, minimizing the possibility of radio signal collisions, blocking and other phenomena that could degrade the performance of either device.
