USB Controller Provides Wired/Wireless Connectivity

The L800, announced as the only certified wireless USB peripheral controller to support both wired and wireless USB, harnesses WiMedia UWB technology to interoperate with UWB and certified wireless USB products at transfer speeds to 480 Mb/s. It supports compliant packet, burst, and transfer sizes, plus number of endpoints. The chip manages the protocol requirements of numerous wired and wireless USB-class devices, and employs specialized logic for encryption as well as cable and numeric association. In terms of support, a reference design kit is available that includes a PCI adapter board with the L800 and a UWB PHY module. The boards virtually convert a PC into a USB peripheral with a development environment. User guides, schematics, and BOM details are also in the kit. In a lead-free, 108-ball BGA package, samples of the L800 will be available in April. Price is $4.98 each/400,000. LUCIDPORT TECHNOLOGY INC., Mountain View, CA. (650) 968-6800.
