WASHINGTON Focus Enhancements Inc., a video production and conversion technology developer, said Friday (Sept. 30) it has received first silicon for its 880-Mbps ultrawideband chip from Jazz Semiconductor.
The analog/RF chip is the first of a two-chip set UWB device targeting wireless video distribution and high-speed data transfers, according to Focus (Campbell, Calif.).
The company said it expects to take delivery of the second chip by December. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. Ltd. will produce the digital baseband/MAC ASIC.
Chip set evaluation kits are scheduled to be shipped by the end of the year, the company said.
