Lattice Semiconductor has announced that its SiBEAM Snap technology will be integrated into Fujitsu’s next-generation Tablet PC, model Q508. The model will be the first tablet supporting USB 3.1 data transfers at 5Gbps wirelessly. “SiBEAM Snap technology optimises performance for battery-powered applications and provides a seamless, ultra-fast wireless data connection that makes it an ideal solution for Fujitsu’s Tablet PC,” said Susumu Nikawa, CTO at Fujitsu Client Computing Ltd. “By eliminating physical connectors, SiBEAM Snap technology enabled us to produce a much more robust product design.” This further demonstrates that the company's wireless connector technology allows a unique advantage in data transfer for a mixture of high volume mobile applications, such as tablets, smartphones and notebooks. The production-proven solution also can extend to broader applications across the industrial and consumer markets – encouraging innovation in Edge connectivity devices for smart factories, smart homes, and more. “SiBEAM Snap technology completely replaces common connectors such as USB, while ensuring high-bandwidth wireless data transfer for a truly connector-free device,” said C.H. Chee, senior director of marketing at Lattice Semiconductor. “We are excited to see continued adoption of SiBEAM Snap products across more mobile applications, and anticipate broader adoption where a robust low power, fast wireless data transfer is critical.”
