NEC To Produce Certified Wireless USB Reference Designs

NEC today announced that two types of CardBus reference designs with prototyped board, based on Certified Wireless USB technology, will be available in the second quarter of 2006.

The designs have been co-developed with two leading companies of WiMedia Alliance's ultra-wideband (UWB) radio technology. One is the US- based UAlereon Inc. and the other is Taiwan-based Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Last December NEC Electronics Corporation announced the sample shipment of the world's first system LSI chip compatible with the new Certified Wireless USB interface standard. The μPD720170 host controller enables high-speed, wireless data transmission between personal computers, peripheral devices such as printers and external storage, and consumer electronics such as digital cameras. The device is designed to offer data transfer rates as high as 480 megabits per second (Mbps) at a range of 3 meters, while eliminating the need for cumbersome wires.



The prototyped boards announced today facilitate development of Certified Wireless USB applications based on the μPD720170 host controller.
