Artimi Inc. has developed a small-format module pre-integrated into a digital still camera (DSC) reference platform to help manufacturers bring Wireless USB-enabled cameras to market more quickly. The camera uses embedded technology, not external Wireless USB dongles, for high-speed wireless data transfer of photos from the camera to a PC, printer, storage or display.

High throughput rates
Integrated Wireless USB makes it easier to use than plugging in an external dongle to download photos. Artimi's wireless technology promises high rates of real user throughput, allowing 1Gbyte of photos to download in about 30s.

Artimi integrated its WiMedia-based Wireless USB module with the DSC platform used by multiple brand-name vendors of digital cameras. This pre-integrated reference design allows OEM and ODM camera vendors to add wireless connectivity to their existing platform without re-architecting the basic design or rewriting the core software.

Next-gen wireless connectivity
Next-generation digital cameras with Wireless USB will provide benefits for consumers by eliminating need to use cables and speeding transfer of multimedia content and data. Both the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) and the Bluetooth SIG have chosen WiMedia UWB as the technology for this next-generation of high-speed wireless connectivity. This technology is expected to become standard in many future handheld consumer products, such as digital cameras, camcorders and personal media players.
