The WiMedia Alliance has announced that it is selling off pieces of its organization to other groups that promote ultrawideband technology and will close its doors. UWB is a personal area networking technology meant to deliver wireless data transfers between electronic devices in close proximity at speeds up to 480Mbps. UWB has failed to become widely adopted, but the WiMedia Alliance served its purpose in that it helped push through the standards for the technology. The Wireless USB Implementers Forum and the Bluetooth SIG will take over different pieces of WiMedia's technology, though neither organization has said exactly what will become of Wimedia's UWB technology. The Wireless USB Implementers Forum is working to further develop wireless USB technology, and the Bluetooth SIG is working to finalize Bluetooth 3.0, due later this year.
