Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. has added three products supporting the TransferJet close proximity wireless data transfer technology to its portfolio. The company will make available what it says is the industry's smallest TransferJet-enabled SDIO IC module, and the industry's first TransferJet-enabled microSDIO card and TransferJet USB adaptor.

These devices are designed to easily deploy and proliferate TransferJet technology for the high-speed transfer of large multimedia files between consumer electronics products through close proximity, or simply by touching two devices together, indicated Toshiba.

The Toshiba TransferJet offering gives OEMs a quick path to implementation and builds up the eco-system infrastructure for this technology, said the company. End users will enjoy the extremely high-speed exchange of data and multimedia content on their TransferJet-enabled devices just by touching the devices together, without the inconvenience of going through a complex setup.

The Toshiba TransferJet-enabled SDIO IC module features a footprint of 4.8 x 4.8 x 1mm. The company applies its high-frequency design technique and system integration experience to minimise mounting footprint for smartphone and other portable device applications. The TransferJet-enabled SDIO IC module integrates the Toshiba TransferJet transceiver IC, RF components and a crystal oscillator. A software development kit is available.

Toshiba has also developed what it claims as the industry's first TransferJet-enabled microSDIO card that can be inserted into a variety of compact, portable products such as smartphones and tablets to enable the technology. The TransferJet-enabled microSDIO card integrates a TransferJet tranceiver IC, a TransferJet coupler, RF components and a crystal oscillator that makes TransferJet implementation quick and easy. A software development kit is also available.

The Toshiba TransferJet USB adaptor implements TransferJet communications easily, conveniently, and efficiently in larger consumer electronic products like notebooks, PCs and other digital gadgets. It integrates a TransferJet transceiver IC, a TransferJet coupler, RF components and a crystal oscillator making for simple implementation.

The Toshiba TransferJet-enabled SDIO IC module begins sampling in 4Q12, with mass production beginning in 1Q13. The microSDIO card and the USB adaptor will be available in 1Q13.
