Cypress Semiconductor Corp.'s WirelessUSB radio-system-on-a-chip is being utilized by Gyration, a Thomson company, in its latest wireless mouse and keyboard.

Powered by Gyration's motion-sensing gyroscope, the MG1101 MicroGyro enables mouse-like cursor controllability with the ability to move freely around the home or office, and without the need of a flat surface. Coupled with a compact keyboard equipped with 15 Internet/multimedia hot keys, the wireless desktop set is suitable for both media center/home entertainment PC owners and gaming enthusiasts.

"Gyration products provide effortless remote cursor control that allows users to roam freely around the office or home. With the powerful range of WirelessUSB, users can just sit back on the couch and surf the Internet or watch their favorite DVD," said Tom Quinn, senior VP, general manager of Gyration. "WirelessUSB provides unparalleled interference immunity to assure uninterrupted performance in the presence of other 2.4GHz systems such as Bluetooth or cordless phones," added Quinn.

The MG1101 includes an integrated analog-to-digital converter and communicates via a conventional 2-wire serial interface bus allowing a user or OEM to connect the device directly to a microcontroller with no additional hardware.
