Sigma Designs Develop Ultra Wideband (UWB) Chips for Home Networking

Sigma Designs announced the formation of its Wireless Products Division with an initial focus on Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology and products targeted for high definition audio/video streaming between consumer products.

Sigma's new Wireless Products Division was largely formed around acquired elements of Blue7 Communications, a start-up company focused on the development of UWB semiconductor products for the consumer electronics market. The new Wireless Products Division is headed by Hung Nguyen, Vice President & General Manager, also the founder of Blue7 Communications.

The Wireless Products Division is located at Sigma's headquarters in Milpitas and includes over 30 engineers dedicated to the development of all-CMOS baseband and RF components designed around the UWB standard.

The company is pursuing an all-CMOS product strategy. Engineering samples are currently available and the company expects to enter production at the end of this fiscal year.
