TAIPEI -- Artimi, Inc., developer of wireless semiconductors for portable consumer electronics, brings leading edge Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to multi-protocol ultra wideband (UWB) wireless connectivity. With the addition of NFC for simple, secure association, portable devices using Certified Wireless USB, next-generation Bluetooth or WLP connectivity can be secured for high data rate transfer and file sharing. Artimi's integrated NFC and multi-protocol UWB technology is being showcased this week at Computex Taipei.
As the world becomes more digitized, the need to transfer information quickly and accurately between people and devices is increasingly important. With the proliferation of wireless devices, secure association between two devices is paramount, and NFC promises to do that as easily as possible. To use NFC with UWB protocols, such as Certified Wireless USB, next-generation Bluetooth or WLP, two devices are either touched together or passed closely and a secure wireless pairing is made with no user intervention, allowing consumers to transfer data and share files easily and securely. Artimi's multi-protocol WiMedia-based UWB wireless semiconductors integrated with NFC for secure association offer more than 120Mbps user throughput across all protocols.
"Pairing of wireless devices should be ultra simple and ultra secure," says Colin Macnab, CEO of Artimi. "By integrating NFC, Artimi is delivering ultra simple, and ultra secure wireless connectivity, and in particular further strengthening our lead in next-generation Bluetooth and Certified Wireless USB. Our key advantage is that there is no need to install host or device drivers, it just works. We're leading the effort in next-generation wireless association to ensure ease of use not only for product developers -- but ultimately consumers."
