Panasonic WiGig Wireless SD Card

Panasonic recently came up with an SD card that supports WiGig technology. When combined with a wireless controller such as a tablet, users can quickly and easily transmit data from the SD card to a display over short distances.The tablet can also connect with the car’s computer, so the user can easily see relevant information such as battery capacity and tire pressure. Panasonic’s WiGig implementation uses the 60GHz spectrum to transmit data at gigabit speed, but it is limited to a range of 1-3 meters. Due to this limited range, it will not take over from the current WiFi standard, but Panasonic is coming up with a range of situations where it can be used effectively. Panasonic also plans to design a directional antenna, which will allow radio waves to be transmitted from the SD card slot, to effectively transmit data tirelessly. It is aiming for the commercialization of WiGig SD cards for in-vehicle use in summer 2013.
