Alereon and Samyoung Electronics, based in Korea and Texas, will soon be partnering to develop a WiMedia Phy Module. Alereon currently develops technology for Wireless USB, something soon to take off for sure, and other forms of WiMedia. Samyoung develops “LTCC” modules, designed to support high speed wireless USB transfers.
"This is an exciting first step in bringing WiMedia and Certified Wireless USB capability to mobile products. Leveraging our expertise in the development of Bluetooth modules for cell phones and related mobile applications, we expect to have a variety of products to meet the size and cost demands of today's mobile electronics." said Young-Shin Lee, R&D Director of Samyoung Electronics.
Wireless USB is one of those things that currently isn't mainstream, but likely will become it. Universal devices and wireless are both loved and for sure co-development will help these two companies compete. Read the full press release here.
