The device pairs Alereon’s AL5000 chipset with DisplayLink’s network display technology and allows output resolutions up to 1680 x 1050 pixels at and 16.7 million colors as well as what the two companies describe as “smooth DVD video playback and quick responsiveness”. Monitors integrating the technology will be compatible with future notebooks that include a wireless USB chip, the two firms said.
According to Alereon, the AL5000 chipset integrates all of the essential RF circuitry, including synthesizer VCO/PLL, anti-alias filters, LNAs and transmit/receive (T/R) switches, Media Access Controller (MAC) and Baseband Processor (BBP). The chipset is bundled with all the firmware and software drivers necessary to develop a worldwide Wireless USB product covering the WiMedia spectrum from 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz.
DisplayLink’s network display technology includes Hardware-based rendering engines and virtual graphics card software that promises 32-bit color graphics with real-time video playback across a USB link. The company said that its compression algorithm and graphics protocol can also transmit graphics over other standard network interfaces such as Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
