Group certifies first UWB chipsets

The WiMedia Alliance, the group behind the ultrawideband high speed wireless technology, has certified the first chipsets for UWB. UWB will bring about wireless USB and next-gen Bluetooth. UWB is designed to deliver 480 Mbps over a few meters, making short range data transfer quicker. Not only is UWB faster, but proponents say it will help conserve battery life. The group certified chipsets from 12 vendors, including Intel, Alereon and Staccato.
