Ubiquitous wireless personal area networking (WPAN) will become a reality this year, according to the WiMedia(TM) Alliance, which says its protocol enables seamless connectivity among wireless consumer devices that will come to market as early as this autumn.

The alliance recently announced a key endorsement of its ultra-wideband (UWB) common radio platform by members of the Bluetooth SIG, and the alliance said membership rose above the 200-member companies mark.

The Bluetooth SIG has more than 4,000 members in telecommunications, computing, automotive, music, apparel, industrial automation, and network industries. SIG members drive the development of Bluetooth wireless technology.
WiMedia's second formal interoperability testing event was held at the Intel UWB Integration Lab in Hillsboro, Oregon, U.S. on March 28-31, where six vendors - Alereon, Inc., Realtek Semiconductor, Staccato Communications, WiQuest Communications, Wisair, and TZero Technologies Inc. - tested chip-level implementation designed to the WiMedia Alliance's PHY specification, which is designed to give them the ability to offer transfer rates as high as 480 Mbps, low battery consumption and low cost, single chip implementation.

"Market segments critical to the proliferation of seamless WPAN connectivity are blending now as typical personal computer, consumer electronics and mobile market capabilities cross," said Stephen R. Wood, president of the WiMedia Alliance.
