Cypress Presents WirelessUSB Seminar for Designing 2.4 GHz Applications

2/11/2004 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) — the industry leader in USB — announced that it will host a one-hour net seminar entitled "WirelessUSBTM LR -- The 2.4 GHz Way to Bring Affordability, Flexibility and Range into Your Commercial or Industrial Design." This seminar, to be held February 18th at 9:00 a.m. PDT, will focus on design issues associated with building wireless systems for commercial and industrial applications extending up to 50 meters -- including building and home automation, industrial control, utility metering, transportation, paging systems and presentation equipment. Presenters will include Paul Beard, Cypress’s wireless chief technology officer, and product marketing manager Carl Brasek.

RF considerations such as range, temperature, latency, power, and co-existence with other 2.4 GHz technologies are equally important for wireless applications; current RF approaches involve serious tradeoffs between these factors. Cypress's WirelessUSB technology integrates all of these attributes into an easy-to-use, low-cost solution. In this net seminar we will explain how WirelessUSB technology provides ideal wireless connectivity for a variety of long-range, multipoint-to-point applications, including building and home automation, industrial control, utility metering, transportation, paging systems and presentation equipment.

About WirelessUSB LR
WirelessUSB LR chips employ Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) technology to avoid signal interference from other technologies in the 2.4 GHz band, including 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, and wireless emissions from both cordless phones and microwave ovens. The devices feature -95 dBm receive sensitivity ensuring a strong signal at up to 50 meters and beyond. Featuring a highly integrated radio transceiver plus digital baseband, WirelessUSB LR devices are single-chip solutions that, along with Cypress’s wireless development tools, enable designers to significantly decrease development time, component count and system cost. The devices are also noted for their very low standby power consumption. They have a standby current of approximately 0.25-microamp and up to 0 dBm output power which translates into years of battery life for a typical sensor/actuator. In addition, WirelessUSB LR devices feature a data transmission rate of up to 62.5 kbps with an average latency of below 10 milliseconds.
