Chinese researchers boost wireless transmission speeds

A group at the Nanyang Technological Institute has demonstrated new wireless technology capable of transmitting data 1,000 times faster than Bluetooth -- nearly 2 Gbps. In collaboration with A*STAR's Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R), the team has employed mm-wave transmission technology to dramatically improves transmission speeds while maintaining low chip power consumption. The goal is to bring increasingly ubiquitous wireless devices up-to-speed. The system consists of three components: an antenna, a transceiver, and a baseband processor "which comprises non-linear analog signal processing and unique digital parallel processing and decoder architecture – key to lower power consumption." The chipset, known as VIRTUS, has already gained 16 international patents and an impressive resume of chip design awards.
