Silicon Wave and RF Micro Devices, Inc. just announced the release of UltimateBlue Serial Connectivity, a Bluetooth serial cable replacement solution for use with the SiW3500 and SiW3000 UltimateBlue chips. The integration of all the software elements, including Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) and full Bluetooth protocol stack, on the SiW3500 and SiW3000 chips allows OEMs to quickly add wireless connectivity to their existing products. A typical commercial application would be to replace the cable connecting a handheld bar code scanner to a portable printer with a Bluetooth wireless connection. UltimateBlue Serial Connectivity has proven interoperability and is compliant to Bluetooth SPP specifications. The royalty-free software-based solution is Bluetooth specification qualified and available now. The UltimateBlue Serial Connectivity solution, SiW3500 and SiW3000 Bluetooth chips, and an SPP Evaluation Kit are available exclusively from RF Micro Devices, Silicon Wave's global channel partner for its CMOS single-chip radio processor and stand-alone radio modem Bluetooth solutions.
