In this thesis, you may interface a FullMAC Broadcom Wi-Fi chip using a SoftMAC driver to bypass the internal firmware and gain flexibility of modifying the chips behaviour. The chip may be a BCM4358 installed in Nexus 6P smartphones. Having a SoftMAC implementation, you should evaluate its performance against a FullMAC implementation by concidering processing delays and energy consumption.
