Wireless USB makes an appearance in Japan

Y-E Data has announced the first wireless USB hub based on Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology. The Y-E Data YD-300 UWB Hub has received official Japanese certification and is available now.

The YD-300 is based on an UWB chipset from Wisair and can replace any wired USB connection with a wireless link. As a result, a USB peripheral such as a printer, scanner, digital cameras or removable hard drive can be placed anywhere in a room rather than having to be in close proximity to the host PC. The hub communicates with the host PC via a dongle that plugs into a free USB port.

The YD-300 provides four USB 2.0 ports and provides full 480 Mbps transfers over the air at distances up to 10 meters. As of now, the only listed operating system supported is Windows XP. Y-E Data also plans in the near future to provide ExpressCard/34 and PCI Express Mini Card UWB solutions.
