TORONTO – November 14, 2017 – Peraso Technologies Inc., a leader in Wireless Gigabit (WiGig®) chipsets, today announced that it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for its V125 Reference Design for Wireless Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). With the growing industry demand for a wireless solution to accelerate the VR/AR market, Peraso's solution for Wireless VR Applications provides the multi-gigabit throughput and near zero latency needed to deliver a truly immersive virtual experience – all with no wires.
Peraso's V125 Wireless VR Reference Design is based on its W120 WiGig USB Phased Array Chipset that is currently in use across a range of consumer electronics and enterprise applications. The chipset incorporates the PRS4001 WiGig USB 3.0 baseband IC, the PRS1141 60 GHz phased array RFIC, and optimized application-specific antennas. As the only vendor focused exclusively on WiGig chipsets, Peraso has centered its research and development on chipset designs that will impact the VR ecosystem through lower price points, longer battery life and smaller headsets.
“While there has been interest in VR for years, its potential has been literally tied down by headsets tethered to PCs or gaming consoles. Wired VR simply can’t deliver on the promise of a truly mobile and immersive experience and will inevitably limit mass market adoption and robust content creation,” said Ron Glibbery, President and CEO of Peraso Technologies. “As one of the leaders in WiGig technology, we are actively engaged with a wide range of VR firms worldwide to finally cut the cord for a multi-gigabit, near zero latency wireless VR experience. The industry recognition via the CES Innovation Awards underscores the importance of WiGig to the future of consumer electronics.”
Honoring outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products, the prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ and judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media.
Peraso’s Wireless VR and other WiGig-based solutions will be displayed at CES 2018, which runs January 9-12, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Peraso will be located in the Tech East section in Westgate Hospitality Suite 1010. To arrange a private demonstration, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
