Good point @DuckD...a friend of mine, Bogdan Staszewski, invented digital RF while with TI (he is a prof at Delft U now)...I would be also curious what is different in Intel's digital RF approach? something must be as TI patented original solution quite heavily...Kris

As I knew, the so called digital RF already show up almost 10 years ago, for example such as TI delivery bunch of digRF based chips. so Is anybody here can point out What Intel doing now ,is really different from TO did before.

Integrated radios with CPU's is a logical (no pun intended) step as portable "smart" devices continue to evolve with more sophisticated features. WiFi is a good choice as it can be very widely applicable in businesses and homes in the form of installed networks or hot spots. If the integration is successful look for a whole new range of devices that can benefit from it, not just the smart portable devices.

Near-threshold looks very promising, but the Vt corners should be a big concern.

The mostly digital and fully integrable WiFi block is pretty exciting.

Intel is the only x86 microprocessor IDM, so it has the most revenues.

I didn't know Intel is at number 1 position in the semiconductor industry. Now with all the buzz about Intel having a little trouble to take a bigger piece in the embedded market, I thought some other vendor was on the top, like TI which is delivering a whole range of semiconductors now that it acquired National Semiconductor.
