Ralink Technology announced the launch of its RT3090BC4, an 802.11n plus Bluetooth 3.0 Half MiniCard solution for mobile PCs. The WiFi/Bluetooth combo supports the latest Bluetooth 3.0 + HS standard and the final 802.11n standard.
To ensure optimal radio coexistence between WLAN and Bluetooth, the RT3090BC4 combo solution incorporates a sophisticated coexistence algorithm for improved harmony between co-located WLAN and Bluetooth radios. It dynamically adjusts WLAN and Bluetooth transmissions to reduce interference, and it responds automatically to the presence and operating characteristics of nearby Wi-Fi Access Points. This results in 80 percent faster WLAN throughput compared to competing WLAN plus Bluetooth combo devices for PCs.
