Texas Instruments continues to lead Bluetooth® low energy technology advancements

Full qualification of Bluetooth Version 4.0 stack and controller helps realize single- and dual-mode Bluetooth low energy technology advancements for mobile devices and sensors

(PresseBox) ( Dallas, )
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) today announced adoption of Bluetooth® low energy technology, the hallmark feature of the Bluetooth Core Specification Version 4.0. In conjunction, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced full qualification of the Bluetooth low energy stack supporting the BlueLink(TM) and WiLink(TM) connectivity combo solutions. TI also achieved complete Bluetooth v4.0 controller qualification on the CC2540 lowpower, singlemode systemonchip (SoC) running both protocol stack and application software. TI has now certified the full set of components, including ATT, GATT, GAP and SMP that encompass Bluetooth protocol implementation. Today's milestone delivers on TI's December 2009 promise to drive single- and dualmode Bluetooth low energy technology support - bridging the gap between the mobile and sensor worlds. This success makes TI one of the first to achieve Bluetooth v4.0 controller and host stack certification.

"We are pleased to see full qualification of TI's Bluetooth v4.0 stack and controller, as TI continues to play an active role in advancements around Bluetooth Core Specifications," said Michael Foley, Ph.D., executive director, Bluetooth SIG. "This milestone further reinforces TI's commitment to the Bluetooth marketplace, and to bringing dual- and singlemode low energy devices to life across various markets."

"Inclusion of the Bluetooth low energy specification is a foundational step in extending manufacturer and consumer connection capabilities in markets like mobile health and wellness," said Rick Cnossen, president and board chair, Continua Health Alliance. "We selected Bluetooth low energy for our Continua Version Two Design Guidelines as a result of the promise behind this technology, and believe TI's Bluetooth low energy solutions will deliver exciting use cases within Continua's ecosystem."

What makes TI's Bluetooth low energy solutions unique:

- Legacy expertise in creating robust single- and dualmode solutions
- Bluetooth low energy technology support added to proven WiLink and BlueLink connectivity combo solutions, with dropin replacement for existing combo products
- Onchip coexistence for combo solutions, which yield size, cost, performance, power advantages
- CC2540 singlemode SoC capable of running both protocol stack and application software
