Palo Alto, Calif.DisplayLink and Alereon have teamed up to offer a reference design for a Wireless USB display adapter that allows PCs to connect to nearby standard displays without wires.
The reference design enables PC accessory OEMs to easily develop wireless display connectivity adapters and similar products. The reference design pairs Alereon's Worldwide WiMedia Alliance-certified AL5000 chipset with DisplayLink's network display technology to provide a product that achieves the high image quality and the performance of wired displays without the wires.
According to DisplayLink, this is the only adapter design available that allows manufacturers to produce a Wireless USB adapter that meets all worldwide regulatory requirements. The design uses Wireless USB to deliver fast ultra-wideband (UWB) speeds using a standard wireless USB input and output resolutions up to 1680 x1050 and 16.7 million colors with smooth DVD video playback and quick responsiveness.
Because the design is based on Alereon's Worldwide WiMedia Alliance-certified AL5000 chipset, products based on it will be compatible with future Wireless USB-enabled notebook computers from major PC vendors.
