Microsoft Corp. has chosen Cambridge Silicon Radio's (CSR) second generation BlueCore2 single-chip Bluetooth wireless technology solution, including the CSR mouse software, to be used for its next generation wireless mouse and keyboard.

This cooperation is aimed at developing a Microsoft wireless desktop solution along with a USB transceiver. The desktop will include a Bluetooth-enabled mouse, keyboard and transceiver, allowing users to easily create a personal area network (PAN) of up to seven separate devices. The small footprint and full functionality of CSR's BlueCore chips were key elements in Microsoft's selection.

CSR has been working with Microsoft since last year to develop Designed for Windows Logo Program certification tests for Bluetooth. This agreement reinforces the commitment of the two companies to work together to develop Bluetooth solutions.
