Ellisys Upgrades Wireless USB Protocol Analysis Tools for Updated Specification

Ellisys WEX300 Protocol Tools Update Accelerates New Development

GENEVA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/22/09 -- Ellisys, worldwide leader in protocol test and analysis solutions, today announced advance support for the Wireless USB 1.1 specification, currently in a draft status and expected to be released later this year by the Wireless USB Promoter Group. Wireless USB, based on ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, provides the high performance connectivity of wired USB, while delivering the convenience and mobility of a wireless technology. Protocol tools such as the Ellisys WEX300 system are used by technology developers in the design, debug and characterization of Wireless USB systems.

"USB is the most successful peripheral interconnect in the history of computing, and the high-throughput, low power radio technology underlying Wireless USB brings a new and exciting dimension to the consumer marketplace as a logical extension of wired USB," stated Laurent Guinnard, Ellisys co-founder and president of technology. "Enhancements such as those provided by Wireless USB 1.1 must be anticipated by key development tools such as our industry-leading WEX300 Wireless USB analyzer/generator systems in order to enable on-time, successful designs from our developer-customers."

"The Ellisys protocol analyzers and generators are indispensable tools for development of Wireless USB and ultra-wideband systems and silicon," said Jerry Loraine, VP engineering, Staccato Communications. "The updates provided by Ellisys to these products are key to ensuring that we can achieve thoroughly tested products and platforms that meet our customers' time-to-market and quality demands."

Enhancements in Wireless USB 1.1

Wireless USB 1.1 will provide improved power efficiency, enhanced association methods for first-time connection of a host and device and upper band support at 6GHz and above. Ellisys is a long-time member of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF), and is a Contributor in the Wireless USB Promoter Group's efforts to define and deliver the updated specification.

"The updated specification will target specific enhancements aimed at ensuring a positive user experience as well as meeting regulatory requirements for upper band support," said Jeff Ravencraft, president and chairman of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). "Protocol test and analysis tools for Wireless USB such as those provided by Ellisys are important to developers, who must ensure they deliver products that are compliant with the latest specifications and correctly interoperate with other Wireless USB products."


Ellisys WEX300 Wireless USB protocol analyzer and generator systems are in stock and ready for delivery. Updated WEX300 applications supporting specification version 1.1 are available on request and are provided at no charge. Ellisys WEX300 systems are designed to be updated by the end-user in the field to accommodate changes in the protocol environment.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
