Wireless USB developers finally have the means to match their objectives

Products based on the Wireless USB from the USB-IF are expected for the beginning of next year. To meet their deadlines, developers need efficient tools to speed up their developments and further enhance quality.

Geneva , Switzerland — September 6, 2005 — Ellisys, a leading supplier of USB test solutions, today announced the Wireless USB Explorer 300. This new product is the industry's first protocol analyzer that supports analyzing WiMedia™ ultra wideband (UWB) and Wireless USB standards over the air.

Wireless USB ensures that consumers have an easy and secure way to connect their home, office and mobile devices at optimal speed without cables. As most cutting-edge technologies, it implies facing challenges that were never experienced so far. The Wireless USB Explorer 300 is proficient in smoothing firmware and driver development, preventing interoperability issues, verifying data encryption, optimizing performance, tuning power management and improving communication reliability.

Ellisys provides innovative protocol analysis solutions to help developers produce better devices more efficiently. The Wireless USB Explorer 300 is capable of recording and decoding WiMedia™ ultra wideband and Wireless USB protocols from different perspectives. It can record traffic exchanged over the air between devices through its external omni directional antenna. This is the preferred and obvious way to assess devices' true wireless behavior. With a different setup, it can capture traffic between a MAC and a PHY from boards currently in the design phase.

If a protocol analyzer was ever strongly recommended for wired-USB, it has now become an absolute must for Wireless USB developments. With its new Wireless USB Explorer 300, Ellisys unbinds all the power of Wireless USB.
