Wireless USB’s Coming Out Party

The Certified Wireless USB is now ready to hit the market. This was the overall message of a recent conference on the technology. The USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) also said the next-generation Certified Wireless USB Peripheral Development Kit (PDK) is now complete. This cheaper, fresh model provides new features and is expected to be available online to Forum members starting July. The event also saw announcements from WiQuest Communications, which revealed that Windows XP drivers for its wireless USB PCI Express mini card and Adapter products are now available, and from LeCroy, which declared that its UWBTracer analysis system is now able to support various Certified Wireless USB Association and Security models. There were also demonstrations such as that of Staccato Communications’ single-chip CMOS solution. Test equipment supplier Ellisys stated that its WiMedia-based protocol analyzer, Wireless USB Explorer 300, has new features like InstantTiming, which renders graphical representation of Wireless USB packet timing. It also unveiled its byte-level frame generator, the UWB Generator 320, which will enable developers to validate reliability through creating reproducible traffic, timing and error scenarios.
