Las Vegas, NV -‐ CES 2015 -‐ January 2, 2015 – Peraso Technologies Inc. (www.perasotech.com), a fabless semiconductor company specializing in the development of 60 GHz wireless chip sets, announced today it will be demonstrating a WiGig network ecosystem using its WiGig USB 3.0 adaptors at CES 2015. WiGig (also known as IEEE 802.11ad) enables a new class of multimedia, networking and computing applications through multi‐gigabit data rates and highly efficient connections between nearby devices. WiGig USB 3.0 adaptors are expected to play a fundamental role in the emergence of WiGig enabled devices in the 2015 consumer electronics marketplace.
Peraso’s WiGig RF IC is the smallest, highest performing on the market, ready for integration into next generation mobile and CE devices. Peraso will be demonstrating key WiGig applications, including:
- Wireless 4K display
WiGig is an ideal wireless technology for the extremely high bandwidth demands of 4K screens. The low latency aspect of WiGig is critical for interactive applications such as gaming, VoIP, and simple I/O functions such as mouse and keyboard.
- Multi‐gigabit file transfers
As media files such as UHD movies increase in size, rapid I/O technology such as WiGig is critical to allow the transfer of files between a host of CE devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets. While USB 3.0 is fast, WiGig is fast and wireless, eliminating the need for the correct wires and a physical connection.
- WiFi Networking
WiGig is a point‐to‐point solution, as well as a networking solution along the lines of a traditional WiFi network. One primary application is the simultaneous use of a tri-band access point. Multi-gigabit internet access will be a key advantage of WiGig, particularly as cloud-based applications become increasingly pervasive.
“External adaptors have always played a critical role in emerging wireless standards such as WiFi and Bluetooth,” says Ron Glibbery, President and CEO of Peraso Technologies. “We’re proud to be the first WiGig IC vendor to demonstrate the broad utilization of USB 3.0 adaptors for use in the WiGig ecosystem.”
