Chipmaker Broadcom has signed a contract with Nintendo to provide wireless technology for the company's next game console, the companies announced on Tuesday. Broadcom is one of the leading makers of components for Wi-Fi and other wireless communications gear.

Nintendo has revealed few details on its next console, code-named "Revolution", but company president Satoru Iwata confirmed recently that the machine would have built-in support for wireless networking. Nintendo is expected to reveal more on its next-generation plans at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, trade show next month.
