The first wireless USB hub based on Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology is now shipping in Japan. The Y-E Data YD-300 UWB has four USB 2.0 ports and features 480Mbps transfers over a distance up to 10 meters.
The YD-300 is based on an UWB chipset from Wisair and can replace any wired USB connection with a wireless link. As a result, a USB peripheral such as a printer, scanner, digital cameras or removable hard drive can be placed anywhere in a room rather than having to be in close proximity to the host PC. The hub communicates with the host PC via a dongle that plugs into a free USB port.
