I'm the maintainer of the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radio, Certified Wireless
USB (WUSB) and WiMedia LLC Protocol (WLP) subsystems. These are now in
a state were I consider them suitable for inclusion into the kernel.
UWB is a new high speed, short range radio technology (480 Mbit/s at 1
m, 53.3 Mbit/s at 10 m). The specifications are freely available and
are managed by the WiMedia Alliance. For more information see
Various protocols run on top of the UWB radio: Certified Wireless USB
(WUSB); WiMedia LLC Protocol (WLP), for IP (etc) networks; and (in the
future) high speed Bluetooth.
The code is some 35,000 lines so I won't be posting it to this list but
you can view the patch set here:
Or you can pull the changes from the uwb branch of
(Please don't clone the entire tree from here as I have very limited
Or you can view the patches in the linux-usb archive here:
The vast majority of the code forms part of the new UWB, WUSB, and WLP
subsystem with no impact on the rest of the kernel. It has all been
posted to the linux-usb list and has been reviewed there.
For a wider review, I will follow up with the 2 minor patches that add
some simple infrastructure.
