SPOTLIGHT: Australian researchers build ultra-fast chip

Australian researchers have created a tiny chip capable of transmitting wireless data at 5 Gbps over a distance of nearly 11 yards. The "GiFi" chip measures 0.2 of an inch on each side and was developed by researchers at Melbourne University. The researchers claim to be the first to demonstrate a working transceiver-on-a-chip that uses CMOS. The high transmission rate would make applications possible such as downloading high-def movies from a video kiosk to a mobile device in just a few seconds. Article
