Researchers at the NICTA research centre believe their so-called Gi-Fi chip – pictured – which was developed at a cost of $10 million, could reach the market next year. Gi-Fi is short for gigabit Wi-Fi.

After 2009 tests NICTA research team leader Professor Stan Skafidas said the technology offered transmission at 5GBps – up to 10 times the bandwidth of existing wireless technologies at a claimed one-tenth the cost (CDN, Feb 20 2009).

The Gi-Fi chip is said to be the world’s first transceiver integrated on a single chip operating at 60GHz using the CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) process.

At last week’s NICTA Techfest in Sydney, researcher Jerry Liu told media it was hoped to have Gi-Fi chips on the market by 2012 through agreements with smartphone and tablet vendors.

The technology is now compliant with the latest WiGig standard – which provides for 7Gbps throughput – and a NICTA spinoff, dubbed Nitero and headquartered in the US, has joined the WiGig Alliance, which includes Samsung, Intel, AMD, Nvidia and Cisco .
