Atmel introduces new AT76C01 Voice over IP, WiFi chip

This morning, Atmel announced the AT76C01, a chip designed specifically for voice over IP in wireless applications.

The AT76C901 is capable of running VoIP software, firmware enabling 802.11b (Wi-Fi®) and voice compression and decompression all on a single chip. Atmel’s VoIP chip is so integrated that it requires only an SDRAM, flash, LCD display, keypad, battery, 802.11b baseband and RF front-end to comprise an entire wireless VoIP phone.

I’m looking forward to being able to throw my current Panasonic 2.4 GHz wireless phone away and using a new wireless phone built around this new Atmel chip that makes effective use of my existing multi-node in-home wireless network — instead of interfering with it!
