Sometimes we dream about the way things could be. Here’s a fun post to describe a way that we may realize wireless USB.
In recent years the proliferation of USB Type-C interconnection has given rise to a variety of alternate mode partner specifications for hosts to device bus access. New research into various physical interconnection has lead to the groundbreaking wireless USB Type-E connection format that provides both a high speed data bus as well as remote power delivery options.
Fully backwards compatible with Type-C connections and form factor, an existing Type-C port can be upgraded to Type-E through various means, most often realized through a differential optical network gateway LAN emulator adapter running embedded firmware to provide translation from the electrical based signal bus to the wireless teeni-magnito link.
Although little is known as to the physical operation of Teeni-Magnito phenomenon, careful observation of its interaction with surrounding materials provided the opportunity for use as a Wireless transmission mechanism.
Utilizing obverse sinusoidal pulses, the Teeni-Magnito phenomenon is realized within the electron cloud of various atoms comprising the transfer medium. By increasing the pulse width by traditional known means, the phenomenon is known to jump to surrounding atoms though localized quantum entanglement.
Power generation via Magnito Reluctance (the modial interaction via capacitive interactance) has been used in automation system for years first by Rockwell Automation. Research into Magnito Reluctance gave the first clues into the existence of the Teeni Magnito Phenomenon when Retro Encabulators were noticed to generate interference under certain conditions.
A wireless link can then be realized via Teeni Magnito Phenomenon when modulated appropriately. However it has been found that Magnito Reluctance based power generation is incapable of the precise voltage fluctuations needed to induce the Teeni Magnito Phenomenon in Nitrogen gases. Non-linear operational inductors however provide not only the reaction time within the required 1 nanosecond induction window, but also have miniaturization potential allowing power generation to be embedded in a Power-on-Chip design.
Several options are one the horizon for integrating USB-E into existing designs by utilizing the same wafer-level packaging as some USB-C chips, or by embedding the USB-E functionality on an existing USB controller. The latter requires separate Magnito antenna traces, or a connection to an external Teeni Magnito subsystem, providing options for remote power.
