Enables faster time to market for semiconductor manufacturers through its resource optimized and easily portable single mode Bluetooth low energy IP solution suite
Bangalore, INDIA, October 6, 2010
MindTree Ltd. (NSE: MINDTREE), global IT solutions and Product Engineering Services company and a leading provider of Bluetooth Intellectual Property (IP) solutions, announced the launch of BlueLitE, its single mode Bluetooth low energy (Bluetooth 4.0) Intellectual Property suite today. This IP offering complements MindTree’s market proven classic Bluetooth (Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3.0) and Dual Mode Bluetooth low energy (4.0) suite of IPs. The BlueLitE IP suite will help the semiconductor manufacturers make a swift, smooth and effortless transition to tap the opportunities in the fast emerging Bluetooth low energy market.
Bluetooth low energy (4.0) is the latest specification from the Bluetooth SIG. Its features like ultra low power consumption, enhanced range, and ability to run for years on a coin cell battery enable power constrained devices like sensors to connect to other Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth low energy opens up opportunities in new markets such as health devices, sports and fitness equipments, and watches while enabling new use cases in existing Bluetooth enabled products.
The BlueLitE IP suite consisting of Software IP – stack and profiles, and Silicon IP – baseband controller, digital Phy (Physical Layer) and RF, provides a complete single mode Bluetooth low energy solution. The pre-integrated solution IPs for complete transceiver and connectivity chip are part of the roadmap. The BlueLitE IP suite is being demonstrated at the IP SoC Days event at Hsinchu, Taiwan, on 18-19 October.
“MindTree has extensive experience in implementing Bluetooth connectivity in devices like headsets and optimized Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC). We have developed the IP taking into account the various nuances of resource constrained, sensor based devices - the primary targets for Bluetooth low energy” said Dr. Raghunath Govindachari, CTO of MindTree R&D Services. “With advantages like low footprint and gate count, easy portability across multiple OS and platforms and extensive interoperability testing; BlueLitE is perfect for easy and risk free integration of low energy Bluetooth connectivity in any product line.”
MindTree has been an active Bluetooth SIG member since 2000, participating in the Bluetooth standardization process and several working groups. Several of MindTree’s Bluetooth IPs have been qualified for 2.1+EDR specifications and have been proven in multiple products for interoperability and robustness by leading product companies. MindTree also offers product realization services along with its IP to enable faster time to market for its customers.
