KAIST team develops advanced wireless chip

A team of scientists from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology has developed a wireless chip that can transmit data nearly 50 times faster than Bluetooth wireless standards and comparable Wi-Fi speeds. Professor Park Chul-soon and his research team said they developed a new type of radio frequency chip that uses 60-gigahertz bandwidth, different from licensed 2.5GHz or 5.2GHz, to wirelessly transmit 10.7 gigabytes of uncompressed data per second.

Downloading a 5-GB two-hour movie takes approximately three minutes with the current Wi-Fi standards, but it takes less than four seconds with the new RF chip, Park explained. The researcher said the team was also able to minimize the size of the new RF chip for use in mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablet PCs, by requiring only one antenna for transmission unlike conventional RF chips.
