Bluetooth, the 2.4-GHz wireless connectivity standard, is gradually gaining market ground thanks to the efforts of technology leaders such as Cambridge Silicon Radio (Cambridge, England). The company which has already earned an impressive customer list that includes Microsoft, Toshiba, IBM, Fujitsu, Sony, Samsung, NEC, and Panasonic, for such products as laptop computers and cellular telephones, recently announced its third-generation integrated-circuit (IC) solution for Bluetooth in the form of its BlueCor3 family of products. The single-chip Bluetooth solutions support the Version 1.2 Bluetooth standard, including all optional features of the standard. The standard BlueCor3 chip uses 18 percent less current than the earlier generation solution, BlueCor2, making it an ideal solution for mobile telephones, which must maximize operating time on a single battery charge. In addition to the standard BlueCor3 device, the company also announced the BlueCor3-Multimedia chip, with a user-programmable digital-signal-processing (DSP) core that makes it well suited for multimedia applications, and BlueCor3-ROM, which is a low-cost implementation of the chip designed for high-volume applications. The BlueCor3-ROM solution is available in a 4 x 4 mm chip-scale package (CSP) as well as in RF Plug & Go and ball-grid-array (BGA) packages. The RF Plug & Go package integrated impedance-matching circuitry so that an antenna can be connected directly to the chip.
