BlueLitE – A comprehensive intellectual property (IP) suite to enable semiconductor companies easily migrate from proprietary low power wireless to Bluetooth low energy technology
BANGALORE, INDIA and WARREN, NJ, November 17, 2011:
Mindtree Limited, a global IT solutions and Product Engineering Services Company demonstrates BlueLitE, a comprehensive IP suite for Bluetooth low energy technology in the Wearable Technologies Pavilion at Medica 2011 which is a global medical event held at Dusseldorf, Germany.
The BlueLitE IP suite consists of stack & profiles, link layer and digital phy (modem). It is designed to meet the growing need of semiconductor players in the proprietary low power wireless space to migrate to Bluetooth low energy technology.
Majority of applications in the low power wireless space will move to Bluetooth technology due to the advantages that it brings in. This will essentially compel the current players in the proprietary space to move towards the standards based Bluetooth low energy technology. These players will have quite a few considerations to manage a successful migration from their proprietary wireless technologies towards Bluetooth.
“Our extensive research tells us that concerns like interoperability, qualification, end product cost and power consumption dominate the minds of our customers and prospects who are on this migratory path” said Vikram Srivats, Group Head, Bluetooth Product Business at Mindtree Limited. “We have addressed each of these key concerns effectively in our offering which makes it simple and straight to for our customers to have their product in the field in quick time” he added.
BlueLitE has been tested in several Bluetooth SIG interoperability events and has specialized power management techniques. While the most compact implementation in terms of gate count, code and data memory reduces the variable costs, the structural design of BlueLitE enables retention of product platform which keeps the initial fixed costs low. Design based on clean abstraction layers and ANSI C code enables easy portability thereby accelerating the time to market.
“With BlueLitE being qualified and customers having taped out their initial versions of silicon, we are very bullish about Mindtree’s play in this exciting large market” said Vikram.
Mindtree a pioneer in Bluetooth technology space for over a decade has made key contributions to the development of Bluetooth low energy (v4.0) core specifications. Mindtree also holds key positions in the Bluetooth SIG including that of Associate Councilor to the BARB (Bluetooth Architecture Review Board) and co-chair of the Medical working group. Several million units of products across the spectrum of Bluetooth market ship across the globe with Mindtree’s IP today.
