  • 1. Stephen Wood UWB Technology Strategist Communications Technology Lab Emerging markets based on MBOA UWB including developments in Wireless USB & Wireless 1394 Roberto Aiello Founder & CTO Kosar Jaff Product Unit Manager Windows Networking & Devices Technology Group Marilynn Green Senior Research Engineer Nokia Research Center Bob Huang Senior Technical Manager Advanced Wireless Technology Group Joyce Putscher Director & Principal Analyst Converging Markets & Technologies Group IEEE CCNC January 5, 2005
  • 2. Emerging markets for UWB, Wireless USB & Wireless 1394 Chair, Joyce Putscher Director, Converging Markets & Technologies Group & Principal Analyst WPAN In-Stat
  • 3. General Positioning Wireless LAN/PAN 802.15.4a (UWB) ZigBee DATA VOICE Narrowband Wideband Ultra-Wideband 802.11a, b, g Bluetooth PAN LAN Bluetooth 802.15.4 802.11e 802.11n W1394 WUSB
  • 4. Progress
    • UWB is PHY candidate for IEEE 802.15.3a: Flavor still not passed
    • Multiband OFDM Alliance (MBOA) became a SIG
      • Over 150 members
      • MBOA PHY completed
    • Wireless USB Promoter Group
      • USB 2.0-compatible protocol stack, working with WiMedia & MBOA
      • UWB PHY
    • 1394 Trade Association
      • MBOA working with TA to develop FireWireless protocol stack
      • UWB PHY
  • 5.
    • Early 2005: Proprietary chipsets
    • Jan 2005 CES: Prototype UWB-enabled CE devices, kits/adapters
    • 1H05: Chipset integration into CE devices – testing stage & manufacturers ramp up
    • Xmas 2005/2006: Line-powered devices (NOT battery-powered or mobile) like DTVs, PVRs, PCs
    • Xmas 2006/2007: Battery-powered devices like digital camcorders and digital still cameras
    • Mobile Phones? WW standard needed
    High-Speed UWB Market Rollout UWB transmissions not allowed worldwide yet - In process Goal to replace connectors, primarily USB and 1394 cables, between variety of CE and PC devices
  • 6. UWB Silicon Trends
    • Initially, mostly two-chip chipsets, but some targeting early single chip versions
    • Radios in SiGe & BiCMOS
    • Some single-chip PHY: RF Transceiver, TX/RX Switch & BB
    • Many solutions will migrate to a single chip 2006-2007
    • Dedicated processor best for now – Host processing not expected to happen soon
  • 7. High-Speed UWB Applications Forecast 0 12 M 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Source: In-Stat, 9/04 Conservative Scenario #1 Possible Scenario #2
  • 8. WUSB, W1394, UWB & 802.11n to Live Together
    • Will co-exist like wired Ethernet (LAN) & USB (PAN)
    • 802.11n provides a 100-meter circle of 100Mbps that is shared
    • Wireless USB with UWB PHY provides high density of high- bandwidth video streaming connections within each PAN “bubble”
    • Wireless USB & Wireless 1394 development coming along (UWB PHY)
    • WUSB & UWB-enabled products to enter market in 2005 & 2006
    • 802.11n: Final spec about 2 yrs away (4Q2006)
      • About 60 proposals received, but 2 primary camps so far
  • 9. Overlap/Competition 802.11n vs. UWB & Wireless USB 802.11n Wireless USB
    • Although complementary, there will be some overlap, where either or both solutions may be embedded
    High-end TVs, PVRs & PCs
