Qualcomm Atheros AR5xxx (atheros)

Boards based on the old Atheros AR231x/AR5312 CPUs. The AR531x/231x is a platform by Atheros, which is used for dual-band and single-band 108Mb/s routers and APs. It is also referred as a WiSoC - Wireless System-on-a-Chip, and the radio inside often refereed as RoC - Radio-on-a-Chip as it is contained on a distinct chip.
