X-Micro introduces the new 802.11g WLAN PCMCIA card

X-Micro introduced its new X-Micro WLAN 11g PCMCIA card supporting 802.11g protocol. It seems exactly these devices will be in demand in the nearest future thanks to their backward compatibility with 802.11b.

The model features the following:

  • 802.11b (up to 11 Mbps) and 802.11g (up to 54 Mbps), up to 108Mbps in the proprietary "Super G" mode
  • 2.4000GHz — 2.4835GHz range, DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum)
  • Int. antenna
  • <-92dBm receiver sensivity
  • <18dBm transmitter power
  • Up to 300m radius (in the open)
  • Three power management modes, including Continuous Access Mode (default) — max. power, always on; Maximum Power Save — min. consumption, on when wireless network is active; Power Save — average consumption
  • 118x53.5x5mm size
  • Works under Windows 98SE/2000/XP

Gigabyte announces GN-BTP01 Bluetooth 1.1 adapter for USB printers

Expanding its wireless series, Gigabyte Technology announced its GN-BTP01 adapter providing a Bluetooth connection between USB and PC.

The idea is rather simple and tested in solutions from other companies: GN-BTP01 enables Bluetooth devices to send documents for printing at up to 723Kbps. If the printer is off at this moment, GN-BTP01 will turn it on automatically. If a PC doesn´t have a Bluetooth interface, one can use Gigabyte´s GN-BTD01 Bluetooth adapter.

GN-BTP01 is bundled with a power supply and USB cable.
