AUSTIN, Texas -- Alereon, Inc., the Certified Wireless USB technology leader for Ultra Wideband (UWB) WiMedia solutions, today announced the latest addition to their AL5000 worldwide product family, the new AL5350 BaseBand Processor (BBP) plus Media Access Controller (MAC) that pairs with the previously announced AL5100 RF transceiver. The new chipset, based on Alereon's previously certified AL5000 family design, features both a USB and PCI Express interface designed for high performance PC embedded Half-MiniCard Wireless USB applications, docking stations, wireless monitors and wireless connections from laptops to HDTVs. In addition, the AL5350/AL5100 chipset was designed to meet the new Windows Premium Logo Program Windows Host Controller Interface (WLP WHCI) requirements.

"The ability to provide a single high performance solution that customers can use worldwide is essential to large OEMs who are beginning to make significant shipments," said Brian O'Rourke, principal analyst, In-Stat. "The fact that Alereon's chipset is not only worldwide, but can also provide greater than 200 Mbps throughput will allow vendors to introduce end products that finally meet the promise of Wireless USB."
