Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced that Sysgration Ltd., a leading OEM/ODM manufacturer of PC peripherals in Taiwan, has selected Cypress’s 2.4-GHz WirelessUSB™-NL radio-on-a-chip for its “U” and “W” wireless presenter series. Sysgration will also use Cypress’s enCoRe™ II microcontrollers in the presenter and complementary USB dongles. Sysgration has selected WirelessUSB-NL over competitive products due to its low power consumption, extended operating range, and superior interference immunity. WirelessUSB-NL features very low active and standby current (less than 1 uA). It also has a closed-loop radio architecture that minimizes signal frequency drift, thereby reducing need for re-transmissions. These enable presenters to run for 3 years on 2 AA batteries. The device also has -87 dBm receive sensitivity, forward error correction (FEC), and data whitening. As a result, the solution has industry-leading interference immunity and a range of up to 30 meters. “We are pleased to see Cypress’s WirelessUSB solution adopted by Sysgration in two of their widely accepted presenter series,” said Jayant Somani, Senior Director of Worldwide Marketing for Cypress’s Data Communication Division. “The endorsement from OEM/ODM customers shows the industry-leading battery life, long-range operation, and the superior noise immunity of Cypress’s WirelessUSB are widely accepted as the new benchmark for wireless PC peripherals’ performance.” “Wireless presenters work in an environment full of RF interference, usually in offices with multiple wireless devices. Immunity to RF noise is a key factor for presenter performance. Users won’t accept any kind of malfunction caused by RF noise during an important presentation,” said Jim Wu, Marketing Director of Computer and Power Division of Sysgration. “Cypress’s high-performance solution with best-in-class interference immunity was the best solution for us. With Cypress’s excellent technical support, and superior reference designs with accompanying enCoRe microcontrollers, we created five models in two different series for our OEM customers with very short time to market. ”
WirelessUSB-NL is complemented by Cypress’s enCoRe II and enCoRe V low-voltage, highly integrated microcontrollers, offering manufacturers a single source of supply and support. WirelessUSB-NL also supports Cypress’s AgileHID™ protocol that allows existing WirelessUSB customers to get started quickly on their designs without any additional effort.
