Electronic devices will start to come equipped with a short-range, high-speed wireless radio technology known as ultrawideband because it offers rapid, cable-free transfer of large digital files.

Semiconductor-based ultrawideband transceivers from Freescale will provide 220 megabits per second by the end of the year.
