60GHz WirelessHD modules accelerate wireless display designs
SiBEAM, a Lattice Semiconductor, has introduced WirelessHD transmitter and receiver modules that operate over the 60GHz mmW frequency band. The modules deliver visually lossless 1080p video streams at up to 60fps and are a suited video cable replacement solution in medical or industrial operating environments where cables are safety hazards. The wireless modules also reduce the cost of ownership in clean-room environments as there are no video cables to maintain and sterilise.
Darko Spoljaric, Vice President, Global Marketing, NDS Surgical Imaging, commented: “We are proud to partner with SiBEAM to incorporate WirelessHD connectivity solutions in our next generation of wireless imaging platforms with the goal to deliver innovative solutions that enhance patient care. Integrating WirelessHD modules into NDS’ line of wireless video transmitters and surgical displays ensures our customers have high-quality and robust HD video connectivity between the endoscopy camera and our displays in a pixel-perfect image with near-zero video latency. With this future technology, we can eliminate cable clutter and improve efficiencies in a clinical setting.”
SiBEAM’s WirelessHD MOD6320-T transmitter and MOD6321-R receiver modules connect to a host board and provide wireless video connectivity between an HDMI source and a display. Having attained various wireless regulatory approvals, the modules significantly reduce the complexity associated with wireless performance design, testing and compliance standards in wireless system design.
“WirelessHD technology in the 60GHz mmW spectrum has been delivering unparalleled wireless video experience in high-definition with near-zero latency in consumer applications for many years. We’re excited to see demand in broad markets and new applications. Our module offerings will bring 60GHz WirelessHD technology beyond traditional consumer electronics and mobile products to industrial and medical devices where wireless high bandwidth video, with near zero latency, can significantly enhance day-to-day operations," said David Kuo, Senior Director of Marketing, SiBEAM.
