Posted April 04, 2019 03:48:51By David L. RubensteinThe National Institutes of Health has awarded $25 million to the University of Chicago to develop and commercialize a wireless keyboard for laptops that uses Wi-Fi technology.
The university’s Advanced Light-Emitting diode (ALED) wireless keyboard, which was announced in November, is capable of sending more than 4.5 terabytes of data per second, and is compatible with laptops with up to 15 gigabytes of RAM.
It’s the first wireless keyboard to be designed to connect to the internet, said Michael D. Ouellette, director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Advanced Energy Sciences Laboratory, in a statement.
“This research has a very significant impact on the field of wireless computing and is one of the first in the world to make wireless keyboards for laptops,” said John L. O’Reilly, an assistant professor at the university and one of its principal investigators.
“I’m pleased to be supporting this effort by providing funding for this project,” said Dr. Ounlette, who was also an author of the original paper.
“This research is critical to advancing wireless keyboards, which will enable millions of laptops to connect via the Internet.
This project will accelerate the transition to this new technology.”
The University of Illinois, Chicago, and the National Institutes for Health have awarded $15 million for research to develop the keyboard.
The money will be used to develop new wireless keyboards and to support further development of the technology.
The University of California, Berkeley, and Microsoft Corp. are funding the work.
Dr. Ouedeleff said the research is “very exciting,” and that the research could eventually help improve laptop keyboards by connecting devices together more easily.
“We’re very excited about this,” he said.
“It’s an important first step in improving the user experience and making it possible for people to use a laptop as a portable work device.”
The University’s ALED wireless keyboard can be powered by batteries and wireless sensors.
It uses an ALED radio chip that communicates with the computer’s processor and uses Bluetooth technology.
Researchers at the University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are developing wireless keyboard chips that use ALED.
The chip uses a single chip with an antenna that transmits signals between two different computers.
The researchers have already developed a wireless chip that can communicate with several computers.
“We think that the most important thing that we can do is to get the wireless chip working in the most common applications,” said University of Michigan’s Dr. Andrew S. Hinkle, who leads the research group that designed the ALED keyboard.
The University’s Advanced Technology Center is working on a wireless laptop keyboard that connects to an internet-connected smartphone.
It has been in development for several years and has been working with Microsoft on its wireless keyboard.
It is in testing phase and could be ready for commercialization in 2018, Dr. Hiley said.
Dr Hiley is working with the university to develop a Bluetooth-enabled wireless keyboard that can transmit data over Bluetooth, which is a wireless communication technology that enables data to be transferred over long distances.
The university is developing a wireless Bluetooth-equipped laptop that is compatible for use with smartphones.
“I’m excited to see where this goes,” he told the Journal.
“But we’re working with them on the wireless keyboard.”
Dr. Hike said the wireless keyboards would also improve the ability of the devices to work in other areas.
“There’s a lot of different applications where it’s really useful to be able to talk to different devices in a way that doesn’t require a computer to be connected,” he explained.
“The fact that you can communicate over Bluetooth is going to make it a lot easier to do that.”
The research team is also developing a Bluetooth keyboard that could be used in industrial environments, Dr Hiley added.
“That’s going to be a big market for wireless keyboards.”
The ALED and Bluetooth keyboards are currently used in laptops that are connected to power outlets, and also in computers that use Bluetooth, like the Dell Latitude E5400 laptop.
The wireless keyboard uses ALED technology and can transmit and receive data using a chip known as a BLE wireless module.
The BLE module is a small electronic device that can carry signals from one device to another, and transmit the signals to a computer that then can decode them.
The researchers developed the wireless keys using research conducted at the U of C’s Electrical and Computational Engineering Department and at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, both of which are funded by the National Science Foundation.
Dr Ouellett is a faculty member of the University and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
He is also a co-author of a study published in IEEE Transactions on Systems, Managment and Computing in March that reported on the results of a research project involving the University.
