NASDAQ: RFMD)(R), a leading provider of proprietary radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) for wireless communications applications, today announced that it has extended its traction in the cellular handset market with its complete line of system-on-chip (SoC) Bluetooth
(R) products, transceivers and protocol stack software, enabling handset manufacturers to more easily integrate Bluetooth
wireless technology into current- and next-generation cellular handsets.
is also gaining more ground in PC hardware, in-car infotainment and handsfree systems, home entertainment and personal music systems.
SIG has proved that the success of a standard depends on the close cooperation of the key silicon and software design companies," commented Tom Siep, CSR.
The combination of CSR, the world's leading Bluetooth
technology provider, with Clarity, the world's leading provider of echo and noise cancellation software, will allow CSR to increase further the superiority of its audio solutions at a time of continuing consolidation in the industry with fewer Bluetooth
Ericsson estimates the installed base of Bluetooth
products will reach between 1 billion and 1.
The addition of integrated Bluetooth
is a natural progression for DAPs and although it adds value for the end consumer, it forces designers to implement these technologies at the right price with the highest quality.
