Thu, 10/09/2008 - 6:03am
Staccato Communications’ Ripcord2™ family single-chip UWB ICs uses 65 nm CMOS process technology to support wireless USB, Bluetooth, wireless IP and wireless audio/video. The components support WiMedia Band Groups 1, 3 and 6, Time Frequency Codes (TFC) 1 to 10, data rate modes from 53.3 to 480 Mb/s and DAA (Detection and Avoidance). The ICs include Protocol Independent Kernel™ (PIK) architecture for multiple protocol support, and USB 2.0 host/device and SDIO 2.0 interfaces. The Ripcord2 DVK provides an integrated development environment that accelerates native wireless USB device and high-speed Bluetooth designs, as well as generic WiMedia UWB applications.
