Bluetooth+Wifi[edit]

BlueTooth and Wifi channels

The PS3 contains two wireless technologies, Wifi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0. It is not possible for both to be used at the same time, so the PS3 alternates between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication at a very fast frequency using time division multiplexing (note, see:Marvell-WiFi-Bluetooth-Coexistence.pdf). Both wireless capabilities are powered by the Marvell 88W8580 chip. In SKU Models CECHL and later, this wireless module updated to Marvell 88W8780 chip and became part of the motherboard (no longer on a separate daughterboard).
