Get ready, people. Intel are ready to unveil a breakthrough System-on-a-Chip (SoC), which is said to be a new dual-core Atom-based chip, that sports a digital 2.4GHz Wi-Fi receiver, get this, built into the same die.

This new chip is dubbed "Rosepoint", and is built upon a 32nm architecture and will be shown off for the very first time as a research project at ISSCC 2012 in San Francisco. We should see devices sporting this technology to significantly improve power consumption and produce a more reliable Wi-Fi connection than current analogue-based receivers.

 

Intel Chief Technology Officer, Justin Rattner, says:

 

With a digital approach to radio, you can bring the benefits of Moore's law to RF and radio circuits.

 

In order to achieve this, Intel needed to find a way of stopping the radio waves from interfering with the CPU. Rosepoint steps in and stops this by employing noise-cancelling and radiation-shielding methods to enable the concept to work. At the moment, Rosepoint is just a working prototype, but Intel believes that they can develop the technology into a shipping product by 2015.
