Announces the XStream platform (which seems to be BCM4709 + 3x BCM43602),
which is touted as Penta Core (each BCM43602 radio embeds a small processor
to allow for FullMAC operation, BCM4709 remains same dual-core Cortex A9 SoC)

The block diagram shown @ SNB indicates each BCM43602 includes
its own @ 320MHz Cortex R4 processor (along with 940 KB RAM).
