UWB and other traditional narrow-band radio frequency (RF) and spread spectrum technology (SS), such as Bluetooth, 802.11a / b / g difference is very large. UWB uses the extra bandwidth of the RF spectrum to pass data. UWB can deliver more data over time than conventional technologies.
UWB technology for a variety of WPAN applications. include:
- Replace cables with wireless connections between portable multimedia consumer electronics devices such as camcorders and digital cameras and MP3 players.
- Enables high-speed wireless USB connectivity between PC and PC add-in, including printers, scanners, and external storage.
- Replaces a wired connection to next-generation Bluetooth technology devices such as 3G handsets, PC / CE / mobile devices based on IP / UPnP and next-generation IP.
- Establish ad-hoc (point-to-point) high-rate wireless connection between CEs, PCs and mobile devices.
