WiMedia Alliance Completes First Interoperability Workshop

The WiMedia Alliance hosted its first formal interoperability workshop and successfully demonstrated initial ultra-wideband (UWB) silicon interoperability between five different manufacturers, Alereon, Staccato Communications, Realtek Semiconductor, WiQuest Communications and Wisair.

The Alliance said recent product announcements, the results of this event and member interest in future events indicate that numerous vendors are quickly readying devices for market use, thereby standardizing the WiMedia UWB common radio platform.

The first WiMedia certified consumer products are expected to hit the market during the second half of 2006.

  • WiMedia UWB is optimized for wireless personal-area networks delivering 480 Mbps and up.
