SAN JOSE, Calif., January 3, 2012
— Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., (TAEC)*,
committed leader that collaborates with technology companies
to create breakthrough designs, today announced the availability
of its wireless LSI compliant with the TransferJet
standard for high-speed wireless data transfer. The TransferJet
LSI (part number TC35420) enables fast, close proximity exchange
of large multimedia files between consumer electronics devices.
Toshiba, a member of the TransferJet Consortium, will host
technology demonstrations featuring tablets, laptops and smartphones
running the company's TransferJet LSI at CES, January 10
13, 2012, in the TransferJet Consortium booth (#15112).
The Toshiba TransferJet LSI is a single-chip solution that
uses an RF-CMOS manufacturing process to support both RF and
digital functionality in one chip. Having a complete TransferJet
solution in one chip reduces power consumption and design
footprint; key areas of concern for customers designing battery-powered,
small form factor consumer electronics devices. Furthermore,
the Toshiba TransferJet LSI has a receiving sensitivity of
-78dBm, which far exceeds the TransferJet specification
and contributed to the device's range and stability.
"The proliferation of mobile broadband and consumer
electronics devices with lots of storage has enabled consumers
to take their movies, music and photos anywhere. But moving
that content between devices can be a tedious process involving
cables or confusing Bluetooth or Wi-Fi configurations,"
said Andrew Burt, vice president, Analog and Imaging Business
Unit, System LSI Group, Toshiba America Electronic Components,
Inc. "TransferJet removes these complications, letting
consumers simply place devices next to each other to securely
transfer large multimedia files in seconds. Our TransferJet
LSI will let OEMs add this functionality to their devices
with minimal effect on their device's size or power consumption."
The Toshiba TransferJet LSI is now available, priced at $5
per unit in sample quantities.
