More wireless data

Imec and Panasonic have developed a 40nm low-power low-cost CMOS device implementing the IEEE 802.11ad standard – which transports high bandwidth data over a short range. At 7Gbps over short distances it is faster than the 5Gbps provided by USB 3.0.

High bandwidth short range wireless technology will enable many new applications for fast connections that are also intrinsically more secure than wider reaching networks. However this low power version requires more development before it is ready for commercial applications.
