Manufacturer: Atheros s Communications
The Atheros AR9344 is a highly integrated and feature-rich IEEE 802.11n 2×2 2.4/5 GHz Systemon-a-Chip (SoC) for advanced WLAN platforms.
It includes a MIPS 74Kc processor, PCI Express 1.1 Root Complex and Endpoint interfaces, five port IEEE 802.3 Fast Ethernet Switch with MAC/PHY, one MII/RMII/RGMII interface, one USB 2.0 MAC/PHY, and external memory interface for serial Flash, SDRAM, DDR1 or DDR2, I2 S/SPDIF-Out audio interface, SLIC VOIP/PCM interface, two UARTs, and GPIOs that can be used for LED controls or other general purpose interface configurations.
1. Hardware-based NAT & ACL accelerators for Ethernet interface
2. Both PCI Express 1.1 Root Complex and Endpoint interfaces supported simultaneously
3. One USB 2.0 controller with built-in MAC / PHY supports Host or Device mode
4. Boot from external CPU via PCIE, USB, xMII, eliminating need for external flash
