Palmchip Targets Wireless NAS
Now that the concept of wireless storage has been around for about 15 minutes, it’s time to start improving the technology (see Storage Goes Home).
That’s the idea behind Palmchip Semiconductor, the new company launched this week by Palmchip Corp. to manufacture system-on-chip silicon for wireless storage applications (see Palmchip Opens in Pakistan). The chips will probably initially find their way into consumer products such as cell phones, cameras, and PDAs, but Palmchip CEO Jauher Zaidi sees them eventually used for home networks and even wireless NAS (network-attached storage).
“I think it will be a big business for us,” Zaidi says of wireless NAS. “With next-generation wireless technology, corporations will use it.”
