Murata Electronics North America announced the launch of its second generation WirelessHD module. The WHDM-T005/R006 Series provides a fully embedded solution for design engineers developing high-definition audio/visual (HD-A/V) electronic devices such as plasma displays, LCD-TVs, projection DTVs, A/V receiver, and Blu-ray players Specifically, the module enables the WirelessHD (WiHD) compliant wireless video-area networks (WVAN). WiHD is a leading technology that provides a 10m line-of-sight wireless transport method for completely uncompressed communication at 1080p 60 Hz with very short latency. The WHDM-T005/R006 integrates the components necessary for WVAN in a compact aluminum case. Developed for efficient heat dissipation and EMI suppression, it can be easily embedded in low-profile A/V devices with minimal additional thermal and radio law consideration. By using this module, HD-A/V electronic devices are able to create, join, or leave a WVAN automatically. A set of 4.0Gbps and three 10.0 Mbps links maintained with a 60 GHz array antenna and the OmniLonk60TM beam forming technology enable uncompressed real-time communication of 1080p/60Hz or 3D video with 32-192kHz audio and back-channel audio.
