Broadcom reported Friday that its 65-nanometer CMOS system-on-a-chip solves the difficult problem of self-interference among different devices operating in the same frequency band.

The BCM4325 uses Broadcom's InConcert algorithms to solve interference problems between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which both operate in the 2.4-GHz frequency range. "Until now," the firm said, "integrating these technologies in a single product was challenging since multiple radios in the same band can lead to self-interference."
