Bluegiga Technologies Oy, available through Glyn High-Tech Distribution , has launched its new WT21 Bluetooth Module, a new addition to its range of Bluetooth modules.
Incorporating CSR’s BlueCore-6 chipset and supporting new Bluetooth 2.1 Host Controller interface firmware, WT21 offers users a straightforward way of implementing Bluetooth.
WT21 is an ideal product for an OEM who does not want to spend significant amount of time and money to RF regulatory approvals or designing complex Bluetooth 2,4 GHz radio. WT21 is designed to require a minimum amount of external components - it’s equipped with a Bluetooth radio, integrated antenna/RF-pin and embedded HCI lower level stack.
WT21 also has Bluetooth controller subsystem certification as well as the CE, FCC and Industry Canada approvals, minimising the amount of additional RF testing demands and securing a fast and easy path to develop products to be fully Bluetooth compliant.
WT21 is a new generation module using completely new ways of implementing the Bluetooth functionalities. WT21 offers Bluetooth class 1 radio in the form-factor, power consumption and pricing levels similar to the 10-meter range class 2 products.
“With our new WT21 Bluetooth module we keep leading the way for the industry, providing our customers the maximum integration level for HCI applications, and RF quality”, comments Tom Nordman, Bluegiga’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing,
“The product is easy to understand, use and manage, ensuring that our customers enter the market with superior products on time and within budget.”
WT21 is designed to be embedded into products having a processor that is capable of running Bluetooth upper layer protocol stack. WT21 mass production starts during the Q3 2008 and engineering samples are available in August 2008.
