CAMPBELL, Calif. and TOKYO -- Ultra Wide Band (UWB) solutions leader Wisair became the first company to introduce a WiMedia standard UWB chipset solution, with the release of its 531 UWB Baseband chip.

The new 531 chip, Wisair's 2nd generation Multiband OFDM compliant CMOS-based MAC/Baseband System-on-a-Chip, is ready for use in Wireless USB (WUSB) and Wireless Ethernet/IP applications. Wisair's full UWB solution includes the 2nd generation 502 Radio Frequency (RF) chip, launched last quarter. Designed to support short- range connectivity with up to 480 Mbps, the solution offers the fastest commercial wireless chipset to date to conform to WiMedia industry standards.

"This is a large step towards providing mature wireless USB products that meet market demands and go beyond prototypes and lab demos," said David Yaish, Wisair President and CEO. "Our new chipsets, to be demonstrated in Wireless Japan 2005 with small form factor reference designs, exemplify our technological leadership and commitment to delivering complete, industry-accepted products to the Wireless USB market."
