Wireless USB

by Sean J. Keller

Abstract: The Universal Serial Bus (USB) v1.1 has a range limited by the electrical properties of the connecting cables and strict end to end maximum signal delays. By stretching the USB protocol, these strict end to end maximum signal delays can be circumvented, allowing USB data to be transmitted over a wireless connection. This allows for greatly increased range and new application of devices. Prototyping evidence suggests that a low-power, low-cost, and compact Wireless USB System can be created.
