Wireless USB 1.1 Enriches End-User Experience
The Wireless USB Promoter Group – comprised of companies HP, Intel, LSI, Microsoft, NEC Electronics, NXP Semiconductors, and Samsung Electronics – say they are developing the Wireless USB 1.1 Specification. Building on the well-established Wireless USB 1.0 Specification, advancements include new options for first-time association of devices, improved power efficiency, and support for UWB frequencies above 6 Ghz.
Preparing for the demands of future implementations, the Wireless USB Promoter Group is defining new features to make Wireless USB even easier to use. Among the features is a new method for first-time device association – the process to securely connect hosts and devices. Wireless USB 1.1 will support the use of Near Field Communication capabilities, which is a proximity-based approach that allows users to easily introduce devices to their PCs through touch-and-go action. The Wireless USB 1.1 specification will also include updates to enhance power efficiency for better battery life, as well as add UWB upper band support for frequencies 6 Ghz and above.
The Wireless USB 1.1 Specification will be finalized in the first half of 2008.
