Intel Corp. has 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 Universal Serial Bus (WUSB) specification will allow independent hardware vendors to create WUSB devices.

Intel’s 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 480Mb/s within 9.9 feet (3 meters) or 110Mb/s within 33 feet (10 meters). Using Certified Wireless USB technology, PCs, portable CE and mobile devices can download or transfer huge files quickly with high energy efficiency and without the hindrance of cables.

“UWB will allow end-users faster wireless access than ever before to their digital content - photos, music, videos,” said Rich Wykoff, general manager of Intel's New Business Initiatives Group. “We look forward to exploring a new world of unwired possibilities uncovered by UWB.”
