RF Micro Devices Inc., a provider of proprietary RF ICs, and Silicon Wave, a supplier of ICs for wireless personal area networks (WPAN), have entered into a strategic relationship for Bluetooth solutions manufacturing and distribution.

Within the strategic relationship, Silicon Wave will grant manufacturing licenses to RF Micro for their single-chip UltimateBlue 3000 radio processor and standalone CMOS Bluetooth radio modem solutions. RF Micro will be responsible for the supply chain of Silicon Wave's CMOS Bluetooth solutions and will be the exclusive distribution channel for these products. RF Micro has also acquired a minority interest in Silicon Wave by participating with other investors in Silicon Wave's current preferred stock equity financing.

"Silicon Wave's advanced Bluetooth solutions complement our WLAN and POLARIS TOTAL RADIO product families and we anticipate that this relationship will strengthen our position as a complete solutions provider for devices supporting single and multiple air interface standards," said Jerry Neal, EVP of marketing and strategic development at RF Micro.
