LUSTENAU, Austria -- Austria's NewLogic Technologies AG here announced it has completed the qualification phase of its intellectual-property (IP) cores for Bluetooth-enabled applications.
This is believed to be the first Bluetooth-based IP cores to be certified in the market, enabling them to interoperate with other chips and systems in this arena, said Gianmaria Mazzucchelli, managing director of NewLogic.
NewLogic offers three Bluetooth-based IP cores. The company's Boost family of IP products include a software protocol stack and a CMOS-based radio-frequency (RF) device. These IP elements, when combined with a suitable microcontroller core, permit theimplementation of a single chip Bluetooth solution using industry standard CMOS process technologies.
"Our Boost IP products enable designers to integrate Bluetooth functionality into their ASIC and ASSP based products with a minimum of risk," said Hans-Peter Metzler, president and chief executive of NewLogic.
