Silicon Wave Inc. has announced that Microsoft Corp. has authorized its Bluetooth radio modem, baseband processor, and protocol software, for the testing of Bluetooth wireless capabilities of products using the Windows XP OS.

Microsoft's recent support for the Bluetooth specification in Windows XP means that hardware vendors seeking to use the 'Designed for Windows' logo for their devices enabled with Bluetooth technology must undergo compatibility testing through Microsoft's Window's Hardware Qualification Lab (WHQL). Silicon Wave's Bluetooth components will provide developers with that approved standard for confirming the interoperability of their products with Windows XP.

"Silicon Wave's Bluetooth products are an important part of Microsoft's WHQL compatibility testing program for Windows XP," said Dr. Michael W. Foley, Wireless Architect, Microsoft. "Our ultimate mutual goal is for users to have a positive experience when using Bluetooth wireless technology with Windows XP. WHQL testing using Silicon Wave's components will help ensure that devices displaying the 'Designed for Windows' Logo are high-quality, interoperable products."
