Ellisys contributes toward the enablement of the Wireless USB market

Companies wishing to market Wireless USB products now have efficient tools to speed up their developments and further enhance quality of their devices.

Tokyo, Japan — September 28, 2005 — Ellisys, a leading supplier of USB test solutions, today demonstrated the Wireless USB Explorer 300 protocol analyzer at the Wireless USB Developers' Conference in Tokyo. This new product is the industry's first protocol analyzer that supports analyzing WiMedia™ ultra wideband (UWB) and Wireless USB standards over the air.

Since commercial devices based on Wireless USB from the USB-IF are not to be expected before 2006 and the need for a protocol analyzer is immediate, Ellisys decided to develop its own simulation hardware. The setup demonstrated in Tokyo contains three Wireless USB Explorer 300 units: two of them were modified to simulate traffic between a host and a device, and the third one analyzes simulated traffic over the air. The demonstration was a great success and the crowd present at the Wireless USB Developers' Conference was amazed to see a fully integrated product already at this early stage of the market.

“The release of Ellisys UWB and Wireless USB protocol analyzer is an important step toward the enablement of the Wireless USB market”, said Amir Freund, VP Marketing at Wisair. “It will greatly assist developers in validating performance and interoperability issues, and eventually delivering more robust Wireless USB products to customers”, Mr. Freund continued.

The Wireless USB Explorer 300 is proficient in smoothing firmware and driver development, preventing interoperability issues, verifying data encryption, optimizing performance, tuning power management and improving communication reliability. With this new product, Ellisys unleashes all the power of Wireless USB.
