Intersil chips to appear in Airpanels

Wireless networking chipmaker Intersil said Wednesday that PC maker ViewSonic will use Intersil Wi-Fi chips in its Airpanel Smart Display. Intersil's Prism wireless local area networking (WLAN) technology will provide the Airpanels with connectivity capabilities to 802.11b networks, so owners will be able to access the Internet and information from their primary PC wirelessly.

The Airpanel devices use Microsoft's Windows CE for Smart Displays software, previously code-named Mira. They are similar to tablet PCs because they consist primarily of a liquid crystal display (LCD) and they use a stylus for data input. However, they are more of a PC peripheral, while tablet PCs are an evolution of the notebook PC.
