Silicon Image has introduced what it boasts as a complete WirelessHD transmitter for mobile devices that integrates a 60GHz RF transceiver, base band processor and embedded antenna array in a single IC package. Geared for smartphones and tablets, the UltraGig 6400 claims to enable robust high-definition (HD) wireless video connectivity between portable devices and large displays, delivering a cable-quality connection without wires.

The UltraGig 6400 combines the intelligent beam-forming technology of a 60GHz RF transceiver with an embedded antenna array to enable a secure, high-bandwidth video link to WirelessHD-compliant receivers and displays, thereby eliminating all interference with WiFi-based solutions, the firm added.

The integrated high-performance base band network processor ensures that high-quality HD video can be transmitted with near-zero latency and without consuming host processor resources. This approach is ideally suited for mobile gaming and interactive video applications, the company stated.

The device is designed for low power operation, with all components in an easy-to-integrate, ultra-small form factor 10 x 7mm package. This simplifies system integration and eliminates the need for discrete antenna placement.

The UltraGig 6400 include features ultra-low end-to-end system latency of less than 5ms, 500mW typical power consumption and support for video resolutions up to 1080p full HD with multi-channel audio. In addition, it boasts standard video and control interfaces to popular mobile application processors, and is fully compatible with Silicon Image Gen3 and all WirelessHD 1.1 compliant receivers. It also has an integrated MHL 2.0 compliant transmitter for optional wired HD video connections.

The UltraGig 6400 mobile 60GHz WirelessHD transmitter is sampling to mobile device manufacturers.
