Zoma antenna - a simple solution to transfer video images and music at up to 375MBits/sec using new Transferjet TM Technology
Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, is launching an entirely new coupler solution using TransferJet TM wireless technology for the very high speed data transfer of large files. The company will demonstrate a TransferJetTM system using hardware from RF design specialist Icoteq at the CTIA Supermobility show.
TransferJet TM is a new, close-proximity wireless transfer standard, recently created in Japan, that provides a simple way to transfer large data files such as photos, videos and music, between mobile devices, at data rates as high as 375Mbits/sec, simply by placing the devices close together. It has the advantage of operating in unlicenced bands in the USA, Japan, Korea and EU countries.
Antenova’s TransferJet TM solution uses a brand new SMD coupler, named Zoma, (Antenova’s part number SR4TO14), which the company has developed to be an RF Coupler for TransferJet. The new coupler operates in the 4.48GHz band, and transfers data over distances up to 30mm.
Antenova has chosen to work with a TransferJet TM development platform from a partner company, Icoteq, and visitors to CTIA Supermobility will be able to see this operating with the new Zoma antenna. Icoteq’s hardware uses Freescale’s iMX6 quad core processor, comes with a variety of hardware interfaces, and measures just 100mm x 100mm.
The demonstration shows how consumers can use TransferJet TM technology to share multi-media content they have created, in real time, between devices such as cameras, camcorders, smartphones, digital video recorders, (DVRs), TVs, video game consoles and printers. It also has applications in digital signage and public information displays.
Antenova is a member of the TransferJetTM consortium, a group of companies who are co-operating to develop the technology. The TransferJetTM Consortium has been registered as a General Incorporated Association in Japan since September 2011, and focuses on the development of the specifications, compliance testing processes, certification program, as well as conducting marketing activities to promote the TransferJet™ technology, products, applications and services across industries and to consumers.
