Background Profile

The WiseJet is a KAIST spin-off company founded by Chul Soon Park, In-
Yeol Oh, and Byung- Nam Ahn. They have been studying millimeter-wave circuits and associated SW for video streaming system implementation at KAIST for years.

Inside track

WiseJet founder Chul Soon Park has been studying high-speed electronics including CMOS and III-V semiconductors ICs for several decades.

He, together with two fellow co-founders, decided to set up the WiseJet to commercialise the research and technology. 

The products primarily look to solve the problem that wireless gaming solutions such as Google Chromecast have suffered for years – namely time lag making games almost unplayable. 

Currently they are developing the prototype dongle for functional test, and will have pilot product in November, which will be the first product released by WiseJet. Right after developing the prototype dongle they will concentrate to raise funding from investors and marketing – especially to mobile game-makers.

Recent Technology

WiseJet provides a low power wireless solution together with a dual screen technique for smartphone-centric file editing and transfers, video streaming, and wireless gaming.

The wireless technique enables a simplified setting for Gbps wireless connections, which consequently enables simple plug-and-play operation with negligible latency. The dual screen technique realizes virtual joystick, keyboard, and touch pad on the smart gadgets.
