Intel is no stranger to crafting high-speed interconnects, and in case you've grown bored with USB 3.0, FireWire, and Thunderbolt, the company seems to already be planning on whatever is next. The codename right now is MXC, and according to Intel, it can " carry up to 1.6 terabits per second and is smaller than the connectors used today." The proper plans are expected to be revealed in San Francisco at the Intel Developer Forum next month, and it will be based on two years of work with Corning Cable Systems. Obviously, a cable that fast would be able to handle an almost insane amount of data. 4K... Read more...
While the cloud is great at times, there's still a need for physical file transfers to be quick, easy, and seamless. That's where Leef Technology comes in, this week introducing the Leef Bridge. It's described as the first USB flash drive for file sharing between Android phones and tablets, Macs and PCs. The product allows for easy transfers without the need for cables, cloud services, Wi-Fi or any type of data connection. Leef Bridge features a micro USB connector and full-size USB connector that access the same memory so users can share content, photos, videos, music and documents to and from... Read more...
As far as promising wireless technologies go, few have rivaled Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. But honestly, TransferJet has the potential to. It's a sophisticated communications platform with all of the right bells and whistles, but it has yet to gain the kind of mainstream attention and adoption necessary to make it a household name. But at CES 2013, Toshiba is hoping to do its part in changing that. The company has announced that it will showcase a reference display of an SDHC memory card with TransferJet -- described as "close proximity wireless transfer technology" -- at the show. The SDHC memory card... Read more...
Wirelessly streaming HD has been possible for years now, but until recently, most devices that accomplish that goal required a hefty down payment. Those solutions weren't for the everyman, and instead catered to homeowners with loads to spend on a wire-free home theater. But these days, things are different. Technology has evolved to a point where wireless HD transmissions are more mainstream than ever before, and one company has been there since the beginning: AMIMON. That company is responsible for WHDI, a transmission protocol that enables wireless high-def transfers to take place. The company... Read more...
Ever heard of TransferJet? That's a protocol issued by Sony, and it seems like some other company sure loved the name. Alereon and Spectec have chosen CES to announced their partnership: SD CameraJet. This name described a wireless, ultra-wideband solution for transferring and streaming HD media from mobile devices, and there seems to be a growing amount of ways to do just that. The Spectec solution consists of the SDU-7200 Wi-Jet SD card and the SDU-7500 Wi-Jet USB dongle. Both are powered by the Alereon ECMA and ISO standard AL6000 Ultra Wideband chipset. This new solution is primarily designed... Read more...
Are you ready to learn about yet another protocol? Believe it or not, it's time. Bluetooth SIG, the entity behind all of the Bluetooth releases that we know and love (or don't know) has just revealed that version 4.0 is ready to be adopted. What's crazy is that version 3.0 was in this same position early last year, yet to date only a handful of devices (like the Samsung Wave smartphone) have shipped with Bluetooth 3.0 support. It's hard to say why the Bluetooth SIG is moving on so quickly. Bluetooth 2.0 garnered an incredible amount of support. Nearly every major and minor portable electronics... Read more...
WirelessHD has been a protocol that's been around for awhile, but it hasn't really been used a lot in consumer devices. The main reason is cost. WirelessHD products, which generally allow high-definition devices to connect to one another without wires, are quite expensive, and most people can't justify the expense. Select WirelessHD adapters have enabled Blu-ray players to send signals to HDTVs without an HDMI cable, but with some solutions costing hundreds of dollars, it's easy to see why most people simply suck it up and use the HDMI cord. Today, the WirelessHD Consortium, the first 60GHz initiative... Read more...
Talk about innovating faster than the speed of a short-range file transfer. Bluetooth 2.0 and 2.1 are still standard inclusions on most shipping notebooks, but Bluetooth 3.0 has already been announced for a variety of smartphones. The biggest feature with BT 3.0 was the ability to borrow nearby Wi-Fi signals to speed up transfers when needed, but obviously that will drain more power in exchange for speed. Now, Bluetooth 4.0 is already being unveiled, far before Bluetooth 3.0 has even become a mainstay. This week, at an all-hands meeting in Seattle, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) revealed... Read more...
Intel never really has been one to sit in the back while someone else takes charge, and while that has generally only applied to the CPU world, now Intel is getting their feet into all sorts of other ventures. Look at Light Peak: ten years ago, no one would've expected for Intel to develop their own transmission protocol, but now, it's a forthcoming reality.We had heard before that Light Peak, a fiber-based transfer solution that could reach insane speeds, may ship as early as 2010, and now we're beginning to hear what Intel has planned. Kevin Kahn, an Intel senior fellow, stated at the Intel Developer... Read more...
You know those products that you never think you need until you try? Here's yet another one for the list. Cypress Semiconductor has improved upon something that the vast majority of us probably take for granted, as we simply assume that our phone is just "doing the best that it can," and that "it'll be done soon enough." Rather than continuing to wait for PC-to-handset transfers, Cypress has decided to speed things up a bit with its Turbo-MTP solution. You see, the MTP (or Media Transfer Protocol) is a widely used standard which enables cellphone users to sideload media clips onto their mobile... Read more...
Up until now, it's been little more than a hot rumor circulating around the web, but Ordinn from the official World of Warcraft forums has confirmed that Blizzard has been working on the feature for some time, and will eventually add it to the game. "Weve noticed some threads asking about the paid character-transfer info currently circulating on the Web. This feature has been in development for some time now, and while we arent ready to launch the service as yet, were planning on releasing details on it in the near future."... Read more...
The folks over at X-Bit labs take their time demystifying the inner workings of dual-core architecture in their latest article. Using some clever benchmarking techniques, they aim to compare data transfer rates between AMD and Intel's dual core CPUs. "The processors are working with data that are read from system memory to be modified and then written back. Data are cached in the CPU for faster processing, but more than one processor may request the same data in a multiprocessor system. This is not a problem if both the processors are just reading data, because they are both provided the most... Read more...
