A close proximity wireless transfers at data rates of more than 1,000 times faster than near field communications (NFC) is set to be demonstrated by the TransferJet Consortium at the Mobile World Congress being held in Barcelona.

At the event accessory products and prototypes C USB adapters, SD and SDIO cards C from Sony and Toshiba will be shown working with commercial smartphones and tablets. The consortium also plans to demonstrate a content download service from kiosk machines whereby smartphone and tablet users can download movies, music, e-books and so-on using TransferJet add-ons.

Chips, components, and modules that support TransferJet and available for design-in will also be on show, the consortium said.

TransferJet is a low-power, proximity data transfer technology designed to deliver a transfer data rate of up to 560 Mbits per second using a radio carrier centre frequency of typically 4.48MHz.
