UWB to grow at 400% a year

Being the wireless technology that can deliver the bandwidth and QoS that many consumer electronics companies have been looking for, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) presents attractive opportunities, primarily for fast video transfer between peripheral devices, such as digital camcorders, TVs, and PCs, and between set top boxes and TV monitors. In-Stat/MDR projects that, with the technology’s perceived ability to fill the high-bandwidth gap left by Wi-Fi in the home networking space, UWB node/chipset shipments will experience an emerging market compound annual growth rate of over 400% from 2005 to 2008.
