LONDON Wireless startup xG Technology LLC has started sampling a simulation kit for companies to evaluate the performance of its first product using proprietary wireless broadband technology.
The company says its so called xMax technology, initially targeted at voice over IP for mobile handsets, can more efficiently use wireless spectrum and support more efficient communication over wireless or wired links than other technologies.
The technology, patented by xG Technology (Sarasota, Florida) is based on a novel modulation and encoding technology that allows broadband signals to be transmitted at low power on already used parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The xG System Simulation Blockset will allow designers to test the company’s xG Flash Signaling technology, which it says will be the foundation of its XMax mobile VoIP product.
The company says xG Flash Signaling is a “micro power wideband signal” used by xMax to convey information. xMax uses xG Flash Signaling to transmit wideband data at power levels well below the static noise found in the atmosphere. In addition, xMax uses an encoding system, called Index-N, to reduce sideband emissions while multiplying the data throughput rate.
xG Technology says xMax “eliminates the need for multi-million dollar licensed airwaves and, on average, delivers three times the range of other wireless
technologies with comparable power and antenna height.”
The xG System Simulation Blockset uses the same basic technology used in xMax and offers “a reality based simulation with real world variables.”
The kit implements all the mandatory features of xMax in the unlicensed ISM-900 MHz frequency range and allows users to integrate xG with various channel scenarios in the familiar MATLAB environment.
Rick Mooers, Chairman and CEO of xG Technology said, “The Simulation Kit provides the first opportunity for others to see why our technology provides the most significant innovation in RF communications in decades."
