Semiconductor companies developing products for the wireless LAN market will soon have a new competitor nipping at their heels. Ottawa-based IceFyre Semiconductor plans to use US$12 million in venture capital financing to launch a new low-power chipset for the 5 GHz wireless LAN market next year. The main selling features of the OFDM-based chip, executives believe, is its ability to offer higher data throughput rates than competing standards, while consuming less power.
