The demand for faster and faster technology has spurred the development of a wireless millimeter-wave (mm-wave) technology. The VIRTUS chipset, developed jointly by scientists at the Nanyang Technological University and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R), transmits large volumes of data at ultra-high speeds of a reported 2 Gigabits per second. That’s 1,000 times faster than Bluetooth. The two institutions, both located in Singapore, developed the chip to address demand for higher speeds for wireless devices. “The demand for ultra high-speed wireless connectivity has fuelled the need for faster data transfer rates. Unfortunately, current technologies are unable to meet these stringent demands,” Professor Yeo Kiat Seng, the principal investigator of the project and Associate Chair of Research at NTU’s School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, said in a statement.
