New Chip Enables 1.5 Gbps Wireless Data Speeds

Rohm yesterday announced it has developed a chip that reached wireless data transmission speeds of 1.5 Gbps, reports TechCrunch. The company also said speeds of 30 Gbps will be possible in the future.

The semi conductor device uses terahertz waves for data transmission, has a micro antenna attached to it and is 2cm long and 1cm high (size of the module). Rohm developed the technology in cooperation with a research team at Osaka University.

The chip is expected to cost just 'several hundred yen' or several American dollars to produce. Current terahertz-based wireless chips cost millions of yen to produce, are 20cm squared, and have a top speed of just 0.1 Gbps, according to the Nikkei.


Of course, it will likely take several years before this technology is widely available.
