Staccato Communications announced the latest addition to the Ripcord2 family of single-chip UWB ICs, the SC4503 PCIe Wireless Host Controller Interface (WHCI) solution for Wireless USB host applications.

Designed in 65nm CMOS technology, the single-chip SC4503 implements a fully integrated WiMedia MAC and PHY and a high-performance PCIe interface.

Targeted for home and office applications, including notebook PCs, ultra-mobile PCs, netbooks and mobile internet devices (MIDs), the Ripcord2 WHCI Host offering provides a worldwide-compatible solution in a single device and delivers the optimal performance required for host-side Wireless USB applications.

The SC4503 features a small 5mm x 5mm package enabling low cost and small form factor designs. In addition, the SC4503 is the first and only single-chip solution to achieve WiMedia PHY certification in Band Groups 1, 3 and 6, providing PC OEMs a single-chip, high-performance, cost effective solution that is capable of worldwide operation.

Staccato also offers Ripcord2 WHCI reference designs in two form factors: a PCIe Half-Mini Card and PCIe Card/34. Each reference design includes all the necessary hardware, software, firmware, documentation and support required to shorten customer development time and allow them to quickly bring solutions to market.

Samples of Staccato's Ripcord2 WHCI Host solution are currently available. Pricing is available upon request.
