RF Micro Devices announces the highly integrated SiW4000 system-on-chip (SoC) Bluetooth® solution with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) for up to three times faster throughput than current Bluetooth 1.2 devices. With its small size and low power consumption, the SiW4000 is designed for mobile phone applications. The product was developed using a 0.13 micron CMOS process technology with inherently lower operating voltage. Memory utilization and small die size allow the SiW4000 to be assembled in an easy-to-use 4.5 × 4.5 mm ball grid array (BGA) package. The product requires eight external components, including six capacitors, one inductor and one band pass filter. The device also provides a coexistence interface to reduce interference with collocated 802.11 systems.
