Invented Wi-Fi chip, consuming 100 times less energy
Getting any information from the Internet (for example, downloading this site), the mobile device generates and sends a signal to a Wi-Fi router. He, in turn, generates a response signal and sends it back.
The new chip of scientists from NASA works somewhat differently: instead of generating its own signal, it reflects the constant signal of the router, applying useful information on it. Thanks to this, the power of the power source built into the smartphone is practically not consumed, because the whole “hard” work is performed on the side of the router.
Scientists argue that they obtained the rate of data exchange at 40 MB/s, while the main technical difficulty was to select the information of the mobile device from the renewed signals. Negotiations are currently underway with investors to display the market development.
