Sony to ship TransferJet chips in January

updated 02:40 pm EST, Mon November 30, 2009

Sony's TransferJet now up to 560Mbps

Sony began the week with word that it has developed the first practical chip for its TransferJet short-range wireless standard. The components will enable very high-speed wireless syncing for cameras, smartphones and similar devices, and in the development process has been upgraded from its original 375Mbps; it should now transfer as quickly as 560Mbps (70MB per second) when very close. Sony promises the improvements should boost the format's resistance to wireless interference.

The technology also helps TransferJet leapfrog Wireless USB, which sends data at 480Mbps

Production samples will be available for other companies in January at a price of just over $17 per chip. Mass production should start shortly afterward, but shipping products will depend on if and when others choose to use TransferJet in their products. [via Impress]
