Freescale receives first FCC certification for ultra-wideband

Freescale Semiconductor has received FCC certification for its ultra-wideband (UWB) communications technology for home entertainment systems. With this certification, Freescale can begin commercial shipments of its XS110 chipset immediately.

UWB allows consumers to create a home theater environment without cables. It also provides instantaneous, wireless transfer of images from a digital camera to a PC/laptop or television. Users can connect laptops and projectors without wires and music fans can transmit multiple megabytes of MP3 audio from laptops to MP3 players.

Initial consumer applications are expected to include large screen displays (plasma, LCD), digital video recorders and set-top boxes, with mobile applications such as portable hard drives and digital cameras to follow later in 2005.

The FCC certification enables Freescale’s customers to design UWB technology into their consumer electronics applications for unlicensed operation anywhere in the United States.
