Wisair to Bring Wireless USB Functionality to Mobile Devices with New Embedded Solution

CAMPBELL, Calif., March 25 -- Wisair, a leading provider of single-chip based Ultra Wideband (UWB) and Wireless USB solutions, announced today that it is furthering its efforts to bring embedded Wireless USB technology to portable and handheld electronic devices with its new SDIO Wireless USB solution. Based on the Wisair WSR601 low-power single chip, the design enables vendors to embed Wireless USB into portable devices, such as digital still cameras, camcorders and smart phones, using the Secure Digital Input/Output (SDIO) interface.

"Wisair is committed to making the use of Wireless USB the ultimate experience for consumers. As part of this effort, we are enabling module vendors to implement small form-factor, low-power modules based on our single chip. These modules will be utilized by OEMs to integrate Wireless USB into mobile devices," said David Yaish, CEO of Wisair.

The Wisair WSR601 single chip has received regulatory approvals in Japan, the U.S., and Europe, and was recently certified by the USB-IF.

The Wisair design package includes a comprehensive platform for the development of embedded Wireless USB device solutions, based on the SDIO interface. Using the development platform, hardware and software, developers can implement an embedded small form factor module that is controlled by the device side application CPU via the SDIO bus. The SDIO offering will be presented at a Wisair hosted invitation-only Wireless USB seminar that will take place on Wednesday, March 26, 2008, at the Grand Inter-Continental hotel in Seoul, Korea. Wisair will also present to its audience available Wireless USB solutions in the market today and discuss the specific UWB regulatory requirements in Korea.

The SDIO development platform and small form-factor module prototypes are available for delivery. For details, visit
