BURNABY, B.C., April 25, 2005 – Icron Technologies Corporation (TSX Venture: IT), the developers of ExtremeUSB® today announced that it will be demonstrating its Wireless USB prototype at Microsoft’s WinHEC conference in Seattle WA this week.
As part of Icron’s Wireless USB program, the demonstration will show the power of Icron’s ExtremeUSB protocol implemented on the Freescale DS-UWB chipset. Icron’s Wireless USB System is the first and only true cable replacement solution that does not require any drivers or host controller changes, resulting in a fully transparent solution for all existing USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices in the market today.
Icron’s ExtremeUSB for Wireless technology can be integrated and deployed over any wireless technology including UWB, 802.11b/g/a/n or other proprietary 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz radio platforms.
“Offering the market wireless USB 2.0 solutions over a variety of RF platforms gives the user the ultimate flexibility for their applications. The USB market is not a one size fits all scenario, with some users demanding longer ranges or other unique performance options for their USB 1.1 or 2.0 applications”, commented Robert Eisses, VP Sales & Marketing.
The primary benefit of Icron’s Wireless USB solution is its existing USB 1.1 and 2.0 support, requiring no additional drivers, host controller changes, or user configurations. It is a true USB “plug and play” solution that gives the user a wire-like USB experience. It supports most operating systems including Windows, MAC OS, Linux, Unix and Solaris with no changes required.
