ASIX's AX88772 USB-LAN Adapter Solution for the Wii

Nintendo Wii's strong market entry aided by additional ethernet connectivity feature...

Nintendo released it’s home gaming console, Wii, to the US market in November 2006, to high critical acclaim and strong sales – Wii consoles are still selling briskly in most stores today years later, and are gaining even more momentum with new peripherals such as the Wii Balance Board. The Wii’s main processor is IBM’s PowerPC 750CL, based on the Broadway architecture and manufactured using the 90nm SOI CMOS process.

The Wii’s networking capabilities include built-in Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, but for homes without Wi-Fi or for users who desire the performance and stability of Ethernet, Nintendo offers a USB to Ethernet dongle, which adopts ASIX’s AX88772 USB-LAN Adapter Solution, depicted in the figure below, as an accessory for purchase.

                                

The current networking capabilities of the Wii include: news and weather reports, email, Web browsing, Mii sharing, games and software downloads, as well as remote gaming. Nintendo has also released the WiiConnect24 service to download news and data when the Wii’s main processing is low, that is, accessing the Internet to download data when users are not gaming.

Japanese Internet company Dragonfield’s online video sharing community, DOGGA, has also secured a spot on the Wii’s homepage as “CGM TV! DOGGAWii” to offer YouTube-like services. Through the Nintendo Wii and ASIX’s USB LAN adapter, gamers and users alike can browse the most up-to-date and entertaining videos from the DOGGA community.
