Overview[edit]

• 2x 1300 Mbps - 2x 3-stream 802.11ac device (433Mbps per stream),
• 1x 600 Mbps - max. PHY rate for the 40MHz wide 2.4GHz channel = 3200 Mbps class

This is a tri-radio device - all radios

(2x 5GHz [11an+ac], 1x 2.4GHz [11bgn]) used are BCM43602 (FullMAC)
BCM43602 is supported in the mainline Linux kernel by brcmfmac

"U12H315T20", "801726", and "GP REV 1" is silkscreened on the board.

Announces the XStream platform (.. which seems to be BCM4709 + 3x BCM43602),
which is touted as 'Penta Core' (each 43602 radio embeds a small processor to allow
for FullMAC operation, 4709 remains the same dual-core Cortex A9 SoC it already was)
