Ultrawideband system manufacturers now benefit from a complete analysis solution

Products based on WiMedia Ultra Wideband and Wireless USB from the USB-IF are expected this year. An increasing number of companies worldwide need efficient solutions to leverage their UWB developments.

Geneva, Switzerland — January 24, 2006 — Ellisys, a leading supplier of USB test solutions, today announced the Wired Ultrawideband Kit for its Wireless USB Explorer 300 protocol analyzer. This kit enables companies to start developing UWB systems right now while emissions are still being regulated by governments.

WiMedia-based Ultrawideband specifications have been architected and optimized for wireless personal-area networks delivering high-speed (480 Mbps and beyond), low-power multimedia capabilities for the PC, consumer electronics, mobile and automotive market segments. Wireless information is transmitted over-the-air between devices through electromagnetic fields. These fields must stay within certain limits that have already been defined and accepted in the USA but regulations are still in progress in many other countries. By connecting UWB devices to the Wireless USB Explorer 300 using the Wired Ultrawideband Kit, Ellisys eliminates emissions to ensure governmental regulations are respected. The kit can also be used to avoid interferences between unrelated nearby UWB systems, for example in development labs or trade shows.

With its Wired Ultrawideband Kit, Ellisys offers once again a full range of analysis solutions matching the most challenging requirements. Depending on the option chosen, the Wireless USB Explorer 300 is able to probe Ultrawideband waves over-the-air or though high-frequency cables, or even on the WiMedia MAC/PHY Interface.

The Wireless USB Explorer 300 and its Wired Ultrawideband Kit are available today.
