To Showcase its Flagship Bluetooth Baseband Controller BlueWiz 1.2 Among Other Bluetooth Intellectual Properties (IPs) at Premier conference
May 24, 2004 — Bangalore - MindTree Consulting, a leading provider of Bluetooth silicon and software IP, today announced that it will showcase its flagship Bluetooth baseband controller BlueWiz 1.2 among other cutting-edge technology solutions at the Wireless Connectivity World conference to be held in Amsterdam on June 8-10, 2004.
MindTree offers one of the most complete suites of Bluetooth-based solutions in the industry. Besides BlueWiz 1.2, MindTree’s Bluetooth offerings include upper layer stacks and profiles, headset/hands-free solutions and a range of Bluetooth-based services.
MindTree’s BlueWiz 1.2 is one of the most advanced versions of Bluetooth baseband controller. It is v1.2-compliant, BQB-qualified and proven in silicon. BlueWiz 1.2 has been implemented in several products, including handheld devices, automotive applications, consumer appliances and protocol test equipment by respected global product companies.
“With increasing pressure to reduce cost and time-to-market, chip makers and module vendors must embed interface technology into the chip. MindTree’s BlueWiz 1.2 is the right solution to this challenge as it can be integrated within silicon effectively by virtue of its very low gate count, low MIPS requirement, small code size as well as effective power-saving features. Being highly portable and configurable to different hardware and software platforms, BlueWiz is appropriate for Bluetooth enablement of applications like GPS, WLAN and mobile applications as well as other microcontroller-based chip solutions,” said Vinod Deshmukh, MindTree Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President - R&D Services.
At Wireless Connectivity World, MindTree will also display its Bluetooth EtherMind Protocol Stack 1.2 – the upper layer software stack, which is critical to the implementation of Bluetooth embedded and host applications. MindTree’s EtherMind Stack is BQB v1.2-qualified and has been tested at several interoperability events. It has an extremely small footprint and low MIPS requirement and can be easily tuned for application-specific solutions. Some of the other key solutions that MindTree will present at Wireless Connectivity World are the profiles – Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), headset/hands-free, SPP, LAP, OBEX/FTP, FAX, BPP, HID, BIP and SyncP.
“With our strong focus on Bluetooth technology and IP-based product realization approach, MindTree is an industry leader in licensing its Bluetooth components,” said S. Janakiraman, MindTree President and CEO, R&D Services. “As users increasingly demand more features for less cost, MindTree’s IP help chip and solution vendors lead the competition in quality, cost and time.”
MindTree has sold more than 20 licenses of its IP in the last three years and its software is shipped as a standard embedded option in the products of global silicon vendors. MindTree’s software IP integrate into cell phones, computer mice, keyboards and headsets/hands-free of leading brand names in USA, Japan, Europe and Korea.
