Samsung announced a new system-on-a-chip that will allow wireless USB to be added to devices such as mobile phones. This form of short-distance wireless transfer technology would permit users to place a phone on or near a target device, connect the two and transmit data wirelessly. Samsung says its wireless USB technology can reach up to 480Mbps, which would allow it to transfer a 700MB movie between devices in two minutes. The new SoC also combines an SD card, an MMC, a NAND flash memory, and a high-speed USB 2.0 OTG (On-The-Go) interface without the need for more circuitry. The system uses 128-bit AES encryption to protect data from being hacked during transfer. The system uses little power, making it ideal for mobile devices. The chips are already sampling and will be in full production in the second quarter of 2009.
