LucidPort Technology has unveiled its second wireless USB chip, the L802. The low-cost component in the L800 family, the L802 is a general-purpose controller chip based on Certified Wireless USB from the USB-IF. The L802 harnesses WiMedia UWB technology to interoperate with other products based on UWB and Certified Wireless USB at transfer speeds reaching up to 480Mbps. It integrates all the functions required by the Certified Wireless USB protocol, including beaconing, association, and encryption.

Applications include printers, scanners, digital cameras, and other peripherals. The L802 comes in a lead free 108-ball BGA package (11mm x 11mm, 0.8mm pitch).

LucidPort provides a reference design kit, which includes a PCI adapter board with the L802 and a UWB PHY module. Included sample drivers and peripheral side firmware can be used to configure the L802 as a standard USB-class device, like a hard disk or video camera. Pricing, in large quantities is about $4.50. Samples are available now with mass production scheduled in Q4.
