Wireless USB makes it easy
With more than 6 billion wired USB connections in the world today, USB is the most successful interface in
the personal computing, consumer electronics and mobile industries. But what consumers want is their
favorite devices made easy and convenient – no more wires, no more clutter! Wireless USB from the USB-IF
hit the market in the form of Notebook PCs, host adapters and wireless hubs to upgrade existing devices. As
new products are introduced, it will be built in to both host and devices for more than a dozen product
categories. Wireless USB gives consumers an easy, secure way to connect their PCs, CE, and mobile
devices without a cable – without sacrificing speed.
Today consumers are on the move more than ever, and they are taking their rich digital media content with
them in the form of MP3 players, digital cameras and camcorders, portable hard drives, USB flash drives, etc.
Consumers are moving from the home to the office to the airport, and wherever they go they take their
personal digital content with them, such as music, photos and movies, and need the ability to Fast Sync-N-Go
with their favorite devices – which is made even easier with Wireless USB. Look for products in stores now!
The Background
Wireless USB is based on WiMedia's ultra-wideband (UWB) radio platform, enabling products from the PC,
CE, and mobile industries to connect wirelessly at up to 480 Mbps at 3 meters and 110 Mbps at 10 meters.
This technology was created by the Wireless USB Promoter Group – Hewlett Packard, Intel, LSI Corporation,
Microsoft, NEC Electronics, ST-NXP Wireless, and Samsung – aided by more than 100 contributing
companies. The group focused on ensuring backward compatibility, interoperability, security, and maintaining
the guiding principles of ease-of-use and low cost which were pioneered by USB.
The Benefits of Wireless USB from the USB-IF
Wireless USB delivers speeds of up to 480 Mbps at 10 feet and 110 Mbps at 30 feet. At close range, that’s
the same rate as Hi-Speed USB.
Power Management
Wireless USB is designed to deliver maximum power efficiency. Sleep, listen, wake and conserve modes
ensure that devices use only the minimum power necessary.
Wireless USB provides optimum data security through built-in protocols and authentication procedures. All
certified Wireless USB products are required to encrypt their data transmissions.
Wireless USB delivers the same ease-of-use, plug-and-play capability as wired USB, with additional
convenience and flexibility that comes with a wireless connection.
Backward Compatibility
Applications build for USB will work seamlessly with Wireless USB.
Logo Certification
The USB-IF delivers compliance testing, provides trademark licensing and qualifies products to use the
Certified Wireless USB logo. When the Certified Wireless USB logo appears on a product, consumers will
know they are getting a product that has passed the standards set by the USB-IF.
A Ready-Made Market
Wireless USB from the USB-IF builds upon the existing industry investment in USB. Every market segment
will benefit from Wireless USB.
