Samsung today announced a new wireless universal serial bus (W-USB) System-On-Chip (SoC) designed specifically for the upcoming ultra-wideband (UWB) market.
Samsung’s new W-USB SoC combines the convenience of wireless connectivity, the security level of wired USB, and the high speed performance of UWB to instantly transfer mass storage data such as digital photos, movie videos or MP3 music files between electronic devices.
For example, the new W-USB SoC can download a 700MB movie in approximately one minute.
According to the market research analysis firm In-Stat, worldwide W- USB is expected to reach $22 million this year and increase to $390 million in 2012, at an annual compound growth rate of over 200 percent.
Samsung’s W-USB SoC is currently sampling and will be in mass production starting in Q2, 2009. Samsung will show a wide range of portable devices at the MWC 2009 next week.
