CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Wisair today announced it has taken another precedent-setting step in the Ultra Wideband (UWB) industry with the release of a Wireless Universal Serial Bus (WUSB) reference design. The new reference design includes a WUSB PC dongle and a WUSB hub, providing consumer electronics and peripheral manufacturers with the means to offer customers wireless connectivity to existing USB- enabled devices.

Printers, scanners, remote hard disks, digital cameras and cellular devices are able to plug directly into the WUSB Hub and receive wireless connectivity to a PC. The WUSB Hub seamlessly replaces any wireline USB connection with a wireless connection. The Hub, which features two or four ports for connecting existing USB devices, can also be placed at one side of a room, where it can then send data wirelessly to the PC at speeds up to 480 Mbps. In fact, the WUSB Hub can be located more than 30 ft. from a WUSB dongle plugged into a PC.

“We are very excited about the traction that Wisair is making and expect to see our chipsets integrated into many products in 2006,” said David Yaish, Wisair president and CEO. “In particular, our new WUSB reference design fulfills a strong market need for wireless connectivity to portable devices, a business decision validated as we have already secured agreements with multiple manufacturing partners.”
