Intel Corp. has introduced Wireless UWB Link 1480 media access controller (MAC) silicon and reference designs for ultra-wideband (UWB) host solutions.

The designs are based on the Certified Wireless USB specification from the USB Implementers Forum and the WiMedia Network specification from the WiMedia Alliance. They will enable independent hardware vendors, PC manufacturers and device OEMs to deliver high-bandwidth, low-power wireless solutions to permit personal area network connectivity in the digital home and office.

Intel's UWB host MAC silicon has been integrated with multiple third-party UWB PHY, offering customers a choice of radio solutions in its host reference designs. The Intel host solution allows Certified Wireless USB and WiNet to operate concurrently, and has been demonstrated to interoperate with multiple device peripherals such as cameras and printers.

Certified Wireless USB technology enables wireless access up to 480Mbps within 3m or 110Mbps within 10m.
