Toshiba announced it will launch the industry's first microUSB adaptor module compliant with the TransferJet close proximity wireless transfer technology standard.
TransferJet-enabled devices can transfer a one-minute high-definition movie in approximately three seconds. TransferJet is expected to be widely adopted for smartphones, tablets, and various other computing and consumer electronic devices as a device-to-device communication standard.
By touching (or bringing very close together) two electronic devices, TransferJet allows high speed exchange of data. The concept of TransferJet consists of a touch-activated interface which can be applied for applications requiring high-speed data transfer between two devices in a peer-to-peer mode without the need for external physical connectors.
Mass production of the adaptor module is scheduled to begin in March 2013 for sales to smartphone and tablet manufacturers and to PC peripheral equipment suppliers.
The TJM35420MU integrates a TransferJet transceiver IC, a coupler, an RF filter, peripheral passive parts, and a USB connection circuit.
TransferJet communications can be implemented in Android devices, such as smartphones and tablets, that have a microUSB port by inserting this module in the port and installing application software for Android. Support for other operating systems is being prepared, the firm said.
Toshiba will showcase, for reference, a tablet equipped with a prototype of this microUSB adaptor module, and a TransferJet-enabled SDHC memory card, which is under development, at the 2013 International CES, the world's biggest consumer technology-related trade show, to be held from January 8 to 11 in Las Vegas.
