From Broadband to Ultra Wide Band (Mar 2002)

September, 2002


Ultra Wide Band (UWB) is a data transmission method which uses very short duration pulses over large transmission bandwidths. In English, that means a lot of information goes from point A to point B very rapidly by sending all of it in one big cluster. The emergence of Ultra Wide Band could have a revolutionary impact on data transmission and consumer electronics. The technology could be applied to set up wireless cable TV or computer networks at home, or to enable users to swap enormous amounts of data almost instantly.
