UWB 2008: Short-Term Problems and Long-Term Potential

  • Published: December 2008

  • In-Stat/MDR

The market for ultrawideband (UWB) devices was bumpy in 2008, with multiple chip companies leaving the market in the second half of the year. However, regulatory hurdles have been cleared to some extent, allowing for the release of worldwide chip SKUs by some chip vendors. There are currently five mobile PC vendors shipping UWB-enabled products. Hub and dongle solutions remain a transition to more embedded devices on the market.

The primary question for UWB now is: Will other product segments follow where PCs lead? UWB is a very flexible technology in that it supports multiple standards, including WUSB, Bluetooth 3.0, and IP over UWB. This should enable the technology to gain design wins in a wide range of product segments, including PC peripherals, consumer electronics (CE), and mobile phones.

This report contains analysis and annual shipment forecasts through 2012 for the penetration of UWB into 22 separate applications within the following product segments: PC, PC peripheral, CE, communications, and industrial/medical. The annual penetration forecast for UWB into each application is broken down by WiMedia UWB and proprietary UWB. Profiles of leading UWB chip vendors READ MORE >
