Isn’t it a pain to have to lug around 10 different cords to 10 different electronics because they all use different sync cables.  Imagine a world where you could just cut the cord and get on with your life…without being tethered down, hampering your ability to live.  Ok, so maybe that was a little dramatic.  However, cords to a digital nerd are like gnats to a cow…not life threatening, but just a pain in the a**.  So it is with great pleasure and excitement to announce that Samsung is making early plans to adopt W-USB (wireless USB) into their mobile devices, cameras, etc.  With the latest SoC (system on chip) technology, Wireless USB is now physically possible to add on to small devices while conserving as much batter life as possible and taking up very little space…

For spec freaks below is a short list of the features and specs of W-USB


  • chip contains an ARM core/memory controller/UWB physical layer/memory component
  • 3.1-10.6GHz (operating frequency)
  • top speeds of 480Mbps (real world speeds so far of 120Mbps)
  • 128 bit AES encryption


W-USB is definitely something to look forward to in ushering in a whole new era of possibilities.  Dr. Yiwan Wong, Vice President of System LSI Division at Samsung is the numero uno heading up development for the W-USB project at Samsung and had this to say:

Connected consumer electronic products are the next step in enabling anytime, anywhere access to information and services. One of the keys to wireless connectivity is W-USB technology. While W-USB technology is just beginning to ramp up, its application will soon increase with the consumer electronic and mobile phone markets’ demand for wireless connectivity technology and UWB’s fast download speeds.

Wireless USB is coming…very soon.  Are you excited yet?
