Ultra Wideband: Revolutionary Wireless Technology is Born
Posted: 25-Mar-2002 [Source: AsiaBizTech]

[The FCC's recent lift of restrictions on UWB technology for non-military applications has UWB arriving on the scene competing directly with 802.11 and Bluetooth.]

by Hiroki Yomogita -- "The field of wireless communications -- just when many people were expecting IEEE802.11 and Bluetooth to become the two dominant technologies -- looks set to be blown wide open by the arrival on the scene of ultra wideband (UWB) technology.

"UWB is revolutionary in that it allows data to be sent at faster speeds than the 54Mbps (maximum) of IEEE802.11a, while at the same time it consumes as little power (less than 100mW) as Bluetooth.

"Until recently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) had restricted the use of UWB technology for non-military civilian applications, but on Feb. 14, 2002, those restrictions were lifted. And now, new devices that incorporate the technology are likely to start appearing.

"In the United States, many venture businesses in the semiconductor field have started a frenzy of UWB-related activity, and industry leader Intel Corp. is also showing very close interest in the fledgling technology. It seems that this new U.S.-born wireless technology is going to take the world by storm.
