Wireless connector technology simplifies USB connections
Lattice Semiconductor, a provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, has announced that its SiBEAM Snap technology will be integrated in Fujitsu’s next-generation Tablet PC, model Q508. The Q508 will be the first tablet supporting USB 3.1 data transfers at 5 Gbps wirelessly and will be available in Japan starting in January 2018.
“SiBEAM Snap technology optimizes performance for battery-powered applications and provides a seamless, ultra-fast wireless data connection that makes it an ideal solution for Fujitsu’s Tablet PC,” said Susumu Nikawa, CTO at Fujitsu Client Computing Ltd. “By eliminating physical connectors, SiBEAM Snap technology enabled us to produce a much more robust product design.”
Lattice’s SiBEAM Snap wireless connector technology offers a unique advantage in data transfer for a variety of high volume mobile applications, such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks. The production-proven solution also has the ability to extend to broader applications across the consumer and industrial markets – encouraging innovation in Edge connectivity devices for smart homes, smart factories, and more.
“SiBEAM Snap technology completely replaces common connectors such as USB, while ensuring high-bandwidth wireless data transfer for a truly connector-free device,” said C.H. Chee, senior director of marketing at Lattice Semiconductor. “We are excited to see continued adoption of SiBEAM Snap products across more mobile applications, and anticipate broader adoption where a robust low power, fast wireless data transfer is critical.”
