|TEXAS INSTRUMENTS ACHIEVES BLUETOOTH® AND ENHANCED DATA RATE
CERTIFICATION FOR FASTER DOWNLOADS ON 2.5G AND 3G MOBILE PHONES|
DALLAS- Texas Instruments
Incorporated (TI) announced that the company's fifth generation Bluetooth® solution has passed the qualification
for Bluetooth specification v2.0 and enhanced data rate (EDR) by the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group). TI's
solution delivers the fastest version of enhanced data rate (EDR) to support speeds up to 3Mbps in a Bluetooth
network for bandwidth intensive applications on 2.5G and 3G mobile phones, including faster downloads of MP3 files
and digital photos.
TI also introduced the BlueLinkTM platform name for its lineup of complete Bluetooth
hardware and software solutions for mobile phones. The first solution in the family is BlueLink 5.0, which consists
of the BRF6300 single-chip Bluetooth solution designed for easy coexistence with TI's mobile WLAN solutions and
software for Bluetooth operation. The software includes TI's BlueLink Bluetooth Protocol Stack and all software
required to work with TI's OMAPTM platform and GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA and UMTS chipsets. The BlueLink 5.0 solution
qualified for Bluetooth specification v2.0 + EDR and is now sampling.
"The market for Bluetooth networking
in mobile phones is showing strong signs of growth, and we anticipate that up to 58 percent of mobile phones shipped
worldwide by 2008 will include a Bluetooth connection. The coexistence of WLAN and Bluetooth will be key in the
mobile phone of the future," said Brian O'Rourke, senior analyst with In-Stat.
advancements in enhanced data rates and ease of use, Bluetooth connectivity is becoming a must-have feature on
handsets with manufacturers, operators and consumers," said Marc Cetto, general manager of TI's Mobile Connectivity
Solutions business unit. "TI's BlueLink 5.0 platform is furthering TI's efforts in WLAN and Bluetooth coexistence
and is leading the market in complete Bluetooth solutions for mobile handset manufacturers."
speed manufacturers' time to market for Bluetooth enabled 2G, 2.5G and 3G mobile phones, the BlueLink 5.0 single
chip uses TI's 90 nanometer (nm) advanced process manufacturing and DRP™ technology to deliver the industry's:
* Maximum Bluetooth performance: Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR support with maximum throughput of speeds
up to 3Mbps.
* Leading WLAN Coexistence: Improved coexistence and interoperability with WLAN through a
shared antenna architecture and collaborative interface to TI's mobile WLAN solutions such as the WiLinkTM 4.0
mobile WLAN platform. TI's WLAN-Bluetooth Coexistence Solution was introduced in 2003 and is included in 18 mobile
devices in the marketplace today.
* Industry's lowest power consumption: 100uA during critical in-use
Bluetooth scenarios such as page and inquiry scan, which is three times lower than current solutions.
Smallest size: A 30 percent die size reduction over current solutions, greatly reducing board-space for a complete
* Low cost: TI is able to provide the lowest cost solution through a reduced bill of
materials (BOM). To speed development of Bluetooth enabled handsets, the BRF6300 single-chip is pin-to-pin
compatible with TI's BRF6150 for fast upgrades, and delivers easy software migration from BRF6150 through similar
The BlueLink 5.0 solution is currently
sampling. Mobile devices using TI's BlueLink 5.0 solution are expected to be on the market in the first quarter
