Share Article

Power Digital Card Co., Ltd (PDC) today launches the world's first 802.11g SDIO products under its Eezcon product series. Eezcon enables next generation high-data-rate platforms at 2.4GHz band for wireless operations. This is a five-fold speed increase over traditional technologies. With Eezcon, operation time for the battery driving system can be improved dramatically (30% less power consumption) as compared with conventional wireless LAN products.

Power Digital Card Co., Ltd (PDC) today announces the launch of the world’s 1st 802.11g SDIO product under its Eezcon product series. This was a successful joint development project with Accton Technology Corporation into the wireless arena announced on February 8, 2006. Eezcon will add to the lines of PDC’s wireless products and will be widely available in Q2 of 2006. Similar product lines for wireless MMC related applications will also be launched under MMC IO specifications.

Eezcon enables next generation high-data-rate platforms at 2.4GHz band for wireless operations. This is a five-fold speed increase over traditional technologies. Eezcon meets IEEE 802.11g standard requirements and uses prioritization algorithms and enhanced protection mechanisms to significantly increase pure 802.11g as well as mixed-mode network performances adding to backward compatibility with 802.11b specifications. The dimension of Eezcon is 24mm x 43mm x 2.1mm and is the World’s first and smallest wireless LAN 802.11g SDIO card fortified with Durable Protection Technology (Duratect: http://www.duratect.com). The slim and compact design is optimal for adding wireless LAN function to smart phones, PDAs, Pocket PCs, etc, that are memory card IO enabled.

With Eezcon, operation time for the battery driving system can be improved dramatically (30% less power consumption) as compared with conventional wireless LAN products. Eezcon supports WAP as wireless LAN security, and high-grade security supporting TKIP and AES. Eezcon’s driver conforms to WinCE.net 4.2, PPC2003, WinCE 5.0, Mobile 5.0, and Linux 2.4 applications. Eezcon will also be able to support dual interactive functions simultaneously, so end users can at the same time be talking into an IP phone while sending pictures from the same device to his PC/NB or printer. Downloading files into PDA or Smart Phones will no longer be interrupted by incoming calls. This will allow users to experience ease of use and un-interrupted activities on his device or field of work.

Features of Eezcon are as below.

  • SDIO standard (SDIO Card Specification Ver. 1.00) supported
  • High-speed wireless LAN connection, up to 54 Mbps standard.
  • Backward compatible to the existing IEEE 802.11b WLAN environment.
  • Security: 64/128-bit WEP, WPA (TKIP, AES) supported OS supported by driver: WinCE 4.2/5.0, Pocket PC 2003, Mobile 5.0, Linux 2.4.
  • Size: 24mm x 43mm x 2.1mm
  • Fortified with Duratect (waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, ESD proof).
  • 30% less power consumption than previous technologies.

According to Gen Shueh, Chief Strategy Officer of PDC, “Eezcon is a wireless connectivity project started not long ago. This meets the criteria of PDC for fast, precise, and quality technology development projects. Eezcon will be made with PDC’s patented injection process and fortified with Duratect (durable protection technology). This will allow Eezcon to be very rigid and durable for long term use, not like other products in the market which are made with ultrasonic, resulting in flimsy and easy to break products. The durability of Eezcon can even allow a 2 ton vehicle to run over the product without causing damage and allows Eezcon to survive accidental laundry washes. The enhanced connectivity, low power functions, durability and quality of Eezcon will allow the product to obtain wide acceptance in a short period of time. Other new wireless connectivity products as GPS, Digital TV, Bluetooth, etc. are in development and will be launched soon. As PDC is a market leader in memory products, we will also be bringing memory functions to our wireless products allowing them to have combo function – memory and wireless connectivity in one single product. ”
