Ratoc wireless USB hub

Japan's Ratoc Systems has recently shown off its certified wireless USB starter kit, the REX-WUSB1. The system is designed for use with notebooks equipped with a PC Card slot and includes a three-port wireless USB hub that can also be wired. The kit is compatible with Windows XP or Vista PCs after the included drivers are installed.

Ratoc uses ultra wideband chipsets from NEC and Realtek for the new product, which is compatible with USB 1.0, 2.0 and WiMedia's UWB platforms and supports data transfer speeds up to the peak 480Mbps of USB 2.0 and the Wireless USB spec.

Due for a release in Japan within a week's time, the REX-WUSB1 will be priced at the equivalent of $345. [via WirelessUSBBlog]
