The USB Implementers Forum today announced that it will add support for ultra-wideband frequencies above 6 GHz to the Wireless USB specification by the middle of 2007 as an addition to its existing support for frequencies below 5 GHz.
Wireless USB support for frequencies above 6 GHz enables and accelerates market growth, said Dave Fisher, CTO, Wireless, with Texas Instruments Residential Gateway and Embedded Systems Business Unit. Upper band operation is a welcome development for the handset and consumer electronics industries as it provides flexibility for product implementations, and lets those products leverage existing USB infrastructure for added high-speed wireless connectivity.
Products using the upper UWB bands are projected to come to market in the first half of 2008.
