Intel Announces New Ultra-Wideband Silicon, Host Reference Designs
Intel Corporation announced the availability of the Intel Wireless UWB Link 1480 MAC (media access controller) silicon and reference designs for ultra-wideband host solutions. These solutions, based on the Certified Wireless USB specification from the USB Implementers Forum and the WiMedia Network specification from the WiMedia Alliance, will allow independent hardware vendors, PC manufacturers and device OEMs to deliver high-bandwidth, low-power wireless solutions that provide personal area network connectivity in the digital home and office.
Intelís UWB host MAC silicon has been integrated with multiple third-party UWB physical layers, offering customers a choice of radio solutions in its host reference designs. The Intel host solution enables concurrent operation of Certified Wireless USB and WiNet and has been demonstrated to interoperate with multiple device peripherals such as cameras and printers.
Intel UWB host solutions enable PCs, printers and digital TVs with existing hi-speed USB ports to be upgraded to support wireless personal connectivity through USB dongles and ExpressCards.
Certified Wireless USB technology enables wireless access up to 480 megabits-per-second within 9.9 feet (3 meters) or 110 megabits-per-second within 33 feet (10 meters).
