System on a chip

Broadcom produces many SoCs that can combine processor, ethernet, WiFi, USB and more. b43 can operate on WiFi cores present in SoCs similarly to the ones present on standalone PCI/PCIe cards.

Please note that devices with PCI(e)/USB core (working in a host mode) can have extra cards attached. We don't list them in the table, as it's vendor choice what additional card will be used. For example:

  • Netgear WNDR3400 V1 uses BCM4718 and has extra BCM43224 attached
  • Netgear WNDR3700 V3 uses BCM4718 but has extra BCM4331 attached
1) Unsupported PHY type
2) Unsupported radio 0x2057 revision 5
3) Unsupported radio 0x2057 revision 13
4) , 5) Limited performance
