With growth rates well over 100% in 2010, shipments of Wi-Fi chipsets based on the draft n/802.11n will surge ahead of those based on 802.11g, reports In-Stat.

 

According to the firm, 802.11n is ahead in nearly every equipment category, but unit volume is being driven by shipment growth in mobile handsets and notebook PCs.

 

“802.11n chipset revenue will surpass that of 802.11g this year as a result of higher Average Selling Prices (ASPs),” says Victoria Fodale, an In-Stat analyst.

 

“ASPs for draft n/802.11n chipsets are complex, as there are more options that can impact prices. These options include support for the 5GHz spectrum and the number of data streams, which can range from 1 to 4.”
