More UWB

The MBOA / WiMedia group had an area with over a dozen affilitated companies. Samsung was the only company to have a toe in each group, since their Advanced Institute of Technology group had an HD streaming demo going and people present to talk up Samsung's MBOA work.

I also got another close-up shot of Toshiba's MBOA-based module at the UWB technology display in their booth.

While I didn't see a demo, the time I spent in Texas Instruments' room at the Hilton had me convinced that they are going all-out to have real Wireless USB products in the market this year. Their focus is on high speed data transfer for mobile devices such as cameras and camcorders and portable media players.

I don't know where TI is on getting their hardware small enough to fit into these devices or into the flash-key-sized dongles they said would be used to add Wireless USB to existing PCs. The only hardware visible in the room was a setup similar to that shown in the "Samsung MBOA demo" photo above, and I didn't have time to probe further.
