MONTREAL – September 20, 2004
- LTRIM Technologies, an innovative leader in CMOS analog virtual components and tunable resistor technologies, today announced that Zeevo, a leading provider of single-chip Bluetooth communications solutions and transceiver chips for quality audio over Bluetooth, has licensed LTRIM’s power management intellectual property (IP) for integration into Zeevo’s Bluetooth system-on-chips (SoCs). Zeevo’s Bluetooth SoCs enable wireless headsets that support stereo audio for portable devices such as MP3 players and music-enabled cell phones, among other portable wireless products.
“LTRIM’s IP block will help us address the power and space requirements of Bluetooth systems and products,” said Louis Pandula , VP Engineering, at Zeevo. “The IP not only reduces power consumption, it also reduces the design cycle, lowers the bill-of-material (BOM) cost, and increases SoC reliability. LTRIM’s IP gives us a distinct market advantage for our Bluetooth portable-device SoCs.”
“Reducing power consumption and extending battery life is the key design challenge for space- and power-constrained Bluetooth portable devices,” said Mike Shamshirian, LTRIM’s VP of Sales and Business Development. “Integration of LTRIM’s power management IPs into Zeevo’s SoCs reduce power consumption, thereby increasing system battery life.
