Sony's TransferJet is a next generation transfer technology with an easy interface, which would suit to portable devices.
Sony's new "CXD3267AGG" and "CXD3268AGW" are LSI chip packed signal processor and wireless connectivity needed for TransferJet. It's priced 1500 YEN(about 17 USD) for each.
With these chips, device manufacturers can embed TransferJet technology with slightest changes. As for programmers, there will be reference kit and software development kit provided. The LSI will also be released as PCI Express Mini Card module and USB modules.
Product summary sheet of "CXD3267AGG" and "CXD3268AGW". "CXD3268AGW" is electrically compatible with existing SDIO interface, sized smaller than MemorystickPRO and microSD card.
Recently we reported about Memorystick with TransferJet technology. Seems their LSI chip is small enough for embedding in Memorystick enclosure. Also It will be quite diffusive when installed in microSD card.
