CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Wisair, a leading provider of WiMedia Ultra Wideband (UWB) chipset solutions based on Certified Wireless USB, today announced that it is leading the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) Very High Data Rate (> 1 Gbps) work package for the PULSERS Phase II (Pervasive Ultra-wideband Low Spectral Energy Radio Systems Phase II) Research Project.

PULSERS Phase II is a consortium of 36 industrial and academic organizations, which was formed to research and promote short-range wireless systems based on UWB. Following the successful completion of the first phase of PULSERS in December 2005, Wisair is now heading the second phase of the OFDM technology Very High Data Rate (VHDR) work package. In the VHDR work package, Wisair is collaborating with four other companies to evaluate, conduct performance simulations on possible Physical Layer Protocol (PHY) schemes, and generate a verification platform.

"Since its inception, Wisair has been at the forefront of UWB developments, in terms of developing the first WiMedia-based UWB silicon, obtaining FCC certification, and working with standardization and worldwide regulatory bodies," said Gadi Shor, chief technology officer at Wisair. "Through our collaborative efforts with PULSERS Phase II, we are forging into new data rate arenas that will make UWB technology even more appealing for a broader spectrum of wireless applications. We are excited about the future success of UWB and toward taking this technology to its next generation."

Wisair is also contributing to the Standardization and Regulation work package whereby PULSERS' studies and findings are presented to regulators in Europe and worldwide. In an earlier effort, Wisair cooperated with PULSERS to demonstrate Detect and Avoid (DAA) technology to European and Japanese regulators as a mitigation technology allowing coexistence with other radio services such as WiMAX and 3G/4G cellular networks.

As a Promoter Member of the WiMedia alliance, Wisair is committed to standards-based solutions. Along with its contributions to PULSERS, the company is continuing to support and contribute to the commercialization of WiMedia and Certified Wireless USB based UWB solutions.
