Staccato Communications' latest reference design for its Ripcord family of ICs delivers a compact form-factor design for a cost-effective path for Wireless USB connectivity with existing USB devices.

Based on all-CMOS single-chip ICs, Staccato's Ripcord Device Adapter reference design leverages the cost advantages of single-chip solutions. It targets USB peripheral applications including printers, DSC, DVC and mass storage.

The Ripcord SC3500 product family is implemented with 110nm digital CMOS process technology and is offered in two packaging options. The SC3500P is a complete System-In-Package (SiP) that provides a fully-integrated solution for simplified RF design and a high degree of manufacturability.

The SC3500C is a Wafer-Level Chip Scale Package (WCSP) that provides a low-cost, small-form factor option for module manufacturers and OEMs' that have in-house RF expertise.

Staccato will formally unveil its new reference design at the Computer Electronics Show (CES) in January with two demonstrations highlighting interoperability with third-part products in real-world scenarios.

The first demo will exhibit multiple devices connected in a home office environment and demonstrate wireless printing, file transfer, synchronization and a wide range of applications enabled by USB without the use of any cables.

The second demo will utilize the WiMedia platform to show streaming content on a mobile platform. Users can select video broadcast and on-demand services. Demos are by appointment and will take place in a private suite sponsored by Staccato during show hours.
