Wisair's Wireless USB Single Chip Achieves WiMedia Platform Certification

10/9/07 - Wisair announced that its WSR601, CMOS single chip was awarded WiMedia platform certification. Covering both MAC and PHY layers, WiMedia certified platforms ensure interoperability and coexistence between products and serve as the foundation for Certified Wireless USB products. This follows upon the WSR601 chip successfully passing WiMedia Physical (PHY) layer compliance and interoperability tests and being designated as a registered PHY in the WiMedia integrators' list last month.

"This recent WiMedia milestone is a significant accomplishment for Wisair as it gives our customers the highest level of assurance that our products are interoperable with other, WiMedia-based products from other chip providers," said David Yaish, CEO of Wisair. "This type of certification is essential in order to meet the growing market demand for complete interoperability of various UWB applications. We are excited to help perpetuate this market growth with our own certified products and to be in the first round of products to receive complete WiMedia platform certification."

Wisair is moving to attain all levels of regulatory certifications for its WSR601 WUSB chip. Earlier this month, the company announced that it received Japanese regulatory certification. This accomplishment was particularly impressive as the Wisair WSR601 chip, with its low, out-of-band emission (below -70dBm/MHz), enabled compliance even without the need for band-3 filtering.

WiMedia's Certification Program is comprised of two parts, the first of which is a compliance and interoperability process that tests and "registers" Physical Layer implementations (PHYs) based on the Alliance's PHY specification. Once a PHY is registered, the program's second part, WiMedia Platform Certification, adds the MAC to the registered PHYs for use in a UWB platform that can be submitted for certification. Certified platforms have successfully completed both parts of the certification program.

WiMedia certified platforms are the foundation for other applications, such as next generation Bluetooth and Wireless USB. The platform certification process delivers a level of credibility and quality to manufacturers who develop products based on certified WiMedia platforms such that they can be confident the products will perform according to specifications, and will peacefully coexist with other nearby WiMedia certified products.
